Heron Creek Restroom Project - The Trail Foundation - Balfour Beatty US

Sarabi Studio is excited to announce that we have been selected by Balfour Beatty US as the structural and architectural steel fabricator for the soon to be constructed Heron Creek Restroom project. The project was designed by Mell Lawrence Architects as the next in a series of architecturally significant and functional installations funded by The Trail Foundation along the Ann and Roy Butler Hike and Bike trail in downtown Austin, TX

The structure features a concrete foundation supporting a substantial steel frame that is clad in 1/2" thick steel plate. The largest plates are 8' X 20' in size and the two structures fall on either side of 20' tall lending dramatic scale to an otherwise utilitarian structure. We look forward to sharing updates as the project moves forward in the coming months, for now we are hard at work on the technical shop drawings and submittals.

Below are three renderings kindly provided by designer Mell Lawrence Architects showing the exterior of the structures. The interiors also feature unique and substantial steel elements.
