Openheimer-Montgomery Building


The historically landmarked two-story Openheimer-Montgomery Building constructed in 1894 in Austin, was completely renovated by our previous firm Shefelman and Nix Architects in 1981. Under the design effort of Jim Nix, the building was to serve as the firm’s new office upon completion. The first floor’s three bays were completely renovated into a large open lobby and conference room bay and two private office bays with restroom and break area. The second floor’s three bays were renovated into semi-open studio bays with restroom and break area. The firm also initiated and processed the building’s awarded Austin Historic Zoning and National Register Certification. The building’s final restoration and retrofit won both an Austin Chapter AIA “Honor Award” and a Heritage Society of Austin “Historic Preservation” Award. The building’s contemporary office and studio spaces, in its historic and downtown urban setting, has accommodated the firm ever since.
