Revitalize and Renovate

Lance Armstrong has a new headquarters in Austin. It's a revitalization project and the place is sweet. They took an old warehouse from the 50's, gutted the space and blew out the roof. In the process of redesigning, the new roof allows for a ton of natural light. They also took the wood from the existing roof structure, re-milled it and used it to create these small individual offices. The idea was to create an interior neighborhood.

It's cool that they are giving back to the community and making the effort to try and turn the neighborhood around. In the process, they've put out some great architecture. I like how the message in the overall design ties into his message - LiveStrong.
