Laurel, a boutique luxury apartment community is situated in the Preston Hollow area in the heart of
Dallas. The exterior of the complex is influenced by Mediterranean architecture which is complimented within the interiors. An aquatic palette is used throughout the building accented by wood flooring and dramatic ceilings. Multiple seating areas in the lounge makes more of an intimate setting for the clientele and the guests.
The challenges of this project were numerous. The building plan was completely re-evaluated late in the design process due to the city comments of the garage entrance. This required the teams to find solutions on a quick redesign while ensuring all of the desired amenities were still included within the allotted space. The second, how to design the amenity spaces for both buildings while also splitting the needs of each building. Lounges are in both buildings. The dining and kitchen areas accommodate the needs of both building residence. Challenges were met with great success.
