Wylie Municipal Building
Architexas led this project as Architect of Record in association with Design Architect Holzman Moss Bottino Architecture to provide architectural services for a new municipal facility that includes a city hall, library and recreation center for the City of Wylie. The scope of services began with assisting the city in site selection and program/budget refinement. In this phase of work Architexas analyzed, evaluated and made recommendations for sites identified by the City and also assisted in the decision making process. The selected site is a rural landscape, which will eventually become the town center based on current patterns.
The design is distinguished by an 800 foot long load bearing stone wall and a steel structure that is an integral part of the architectural part of the architectural expression. The stone wall unites the three buildings and integrates them into the natural landscape. The project incorporated significant sustainable elements including a rainwater harvest system.
