Project name: Seaholm Power Plant Offices
Project location: Austin, Texas
Firm name: Charles Rose Architects
Jury comments: A power plant is transformed into a modern office building—no easy feat. Large spaces are made navigable by impressive circulation patterns. Historic features, some with clunky charm, are playfully incorporated. This facility performs sustainably and economically, and could be a model for cities with similar building stock needing new life.
