From the architect. Specht Harpman outfitted this neglected single-story building on the edge of downtown Austin to house offices for a branch of a creative editing company. Using steel-framed windows as partitions and rough-sawn wood for wall treatments, Specht Harpman designed an interior that embraces local heritage while creating an open, collaborative work environment.
