EL SOL Y LA LUNA*

Restaurant
Austin, Texas
completed in 2009
* work performed while employed with Dick Clark Architecture


This project relocated an iconic South Congress restaurant to the heart of Sixth Street in downtown Austin.  The site, a former bar and lounge that was known to host live music inspired the restaurant owner to add that dimension to her already successful operation.  The design seeks to balance an architectural deference to the existing historic building with a lively new branding associated with this well-loved Austin landmark.
