The Awalt Building
Architexas provided architectural and historic preservation services for the restoration and adaptive use of the Awalt Building in Dallas’ Historic West End District. The building was purchased by Slingshot, Inc., an advertising firm whose goal was to create new headquarters for their growing business and lease space for additional offices and retail tenants. The owners were committed to the restoration and preservation of this historic building to receive the Investment Tax Credit with a certified rehabilitation.
All work on the interior and exterior conforms to the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for the Rehabilitation of Historic Places.
Architexas prepared documents that coordinated the restoration of the building’s heavy timber interior and brick exterior as well as the addition of new elevators, stairs, and restrooms. The two top floors of this six story building are the office space for Slingshot. Architexas provided space planning and architectural services for the finish-out. New first floor lobby areas and typical common areas on the remaining floors were designed by Architexas as well.
