Full of Energy / by Michelle Linden






I tend to like more minimal interiors, so I'm a bit surprised at how attracted I am to this project. The project is called Factory People by Bercy Chen Studio and is located in Austin Texas' SOCO District. A multi purpose space, this buildign incorporates a boutique, dance and music venue, and much more (all inspired by Andy Warhol's Factory). The upstairs addition is a clean simple addition whose form is consistent with the other buildings on the street. But downstairs is where all of the energy is... The colorful and industrial interiors reflect the surrounding neighborhood as well as the clientele, rather than imposing a particular style on the users. I'm really digging the vibe...
