In July, the Austin Business Journal reported that Chaotic Moon Studios — a software and development company that counts some of the world’s biggest brands as clients — had chosen new workspace in historic buildings along Congress Avenue.
The 20,000-square-feet selected was a hodgepodge of space awkwardly connected at 315, 319 and 323 Congress Avenue, much of it above Annie’s Cafe & Bar. The Swift, Day and McKean-Eilers Buildings all date back to the late 1800s and early 1900s and connecting them in a cohesive and efficient manner was the challenge for Sixthriver Architects and project manager Tim Wright, principal of Caddo/CM. General contractor Burt-Watts Industries Inc. then made it all happen.
During the Austin Business Journal’s first tour of the space, the ambiance was dark and a little foreboding. But as you can see in our slideshow here, a few months of work has made a huge difference.
