KHS&S Helps Blur the Lines Between Indoors and Outdoors for Resort's Sweeping Transformation
KHS&S played a major role in the $150 million renovation and expansion of the popular Omni Barton Creek Resort, & Spa, located in Austin’s Hill Country. Taking inspiration from the area’s iconic landscape, the renovation’s overall design takes advantage of panoramic views, while blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor experiences and blending old and new sections of the resort.
Highlights of the transformation include: A new resort tower; a new arrival and lobby experience; 493 freshly designed guest rooms and suites; an all-new conference center with a 14,500-sq.-ft. Brazos Ballroom and a redesigned 8,200-sq.-ft. Darrell K Royal Ballroom; a new 5,500-sq.-ft. outdoor event pavilion; a new Mokara Spa with a private, adults-only rooftop pool; and an expansive, multi-tiered poolscape with an infinity edge pool featuring sweeping Texas Hill Country views.
KHS&S scopes of work included metal stud framing, building insulation, EIFS and theming, including the project’s signature wood siding, soffits and ornamentation, which were key to achieving the resort’s design objectives.
