Icenhauer’s in Austin, Texas by Michael Hsu Office of Architecture
April 6th, 2011 by Sumit Singhal
Named for the business owners, Icenhauer’s is a cocktail lounge located in the up and coming Rainey Street bar district of Austin. The site contained a house built in 1893, of which the front two rooms were saved and restored complete with original wood interior walls.
The existing hip and gable roof and front exterior facades of the original house were also maintained, with the new addition differentiating itself with ebony stained cedar siding. Inside, varying colors of wood combine with stone and glass to create intimate seating areas filled with colorful upholstered furniture. The front and back yards are anchored by inviting covered porches and surrounded by warmly lit native landscaping.
