Abel Design Group recently completed the relocation of the King & Spalding Austin office. The completion of this project marks the fifth King & Spalding project designed by Abel Design Group Principal Ken Harry.
Celebrating more than 130 years of service, King & Spalding is an international law firm that represents a broad array of clients, including half of the Fortune Global 100, with 900 lawyers in 18 offices in the United States, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. The Austin office provides legal services primarily in the areas of energy, natural resources, and litigation. It is composed of approximately 50 lawyers in 27,000 square feet of space.
The managing partner requested a traditional Texas Hill Country feel for the new office. The design team researched and incorporated indigenous materials such as Hill Country stone and American Walnut into the design. The space also features a technology-rich conference center with configurable rooms, a serving galley, glass-front offices, an unenclosed coffee bar with community table, LPA teaming pods, and more, all achieved for fewer than 550 net rentable square feet per lawyer.
