The new headquarters of the Lance Armstrong Foundation is a project to fill your eyes. A restoration made in a former warehouse in Texas, bringing new life to the building and the neighborhood of Austin.

Are already memorable all actions and movements made by the foundation, and it was only fair that people who work there helping others have a cute and cozy space. The industrial aspect mixed with wood everywhere created a modern and clean enviroment, and how the areas were distributed shows a certain informality and freedom, perhaps a characteristic of the foundation.

The renovated facility, project by Lake Flato Architects, provides office space, meeting rooms, dining facilities, an in-house gymnasium, open-air courtyard, and parking for the staff of 62. Future plans may call for adding a community-based cancer-support program to provide direct services to uninsured and underinsured East Austin residents. Achieved LEED Gold certification.

After 10 years of leasing space in a corporate office building, the Lance Armstrong Foundation found its permanent home in the 1950s Gulf Coast Paper Co. warehouse in East Austin, an underserved community in the process of revitalization. The design breathes new life and energy into both the building and neighborhood.
