Barton Creek Mall Foodcourt
Simon Property Group | Austin, TX
Designed to evoke the atmosphere of a backyard Texas barbecue, this food court renovation for Simon Property Group has become one of the shopping center magnate’s most profitable operations nationwide. The space is organized into three distinct zones: the veranda, a food court tenant “porch” replete with ceramic tile oriental rugs and over-scaled furniture; trellis, a vine-covered overhead canopy organizing seating areas; and the lawn, contained by stone garden walls. In addition to the thematic design work, Rowland developed tenant standards, neutral pier design, HVAC, restrooms and the court’s graphic identity.
