The Whitley is a luxury apartment community in the heart of Austin. Studio Outside worked with the client to design a unique and elegant amenity space for the residents. The design is highlighted by contemporary gestures incorporating the use of natural stone, wood, brick, and lush architectural plantings. Distinct outdoor rooms define the space through the use of water features and planter walls. An exterior foyer greets the residents with a ledgestone water wall feature and basin. A two-sided stone fireplace frames views to the west while a resort-style pool anchors the center of the amenity deck. The terminus of the pool is emphasized by a wet sunning deck and another ledgestone water wall. Beyond the pool lies an outdoor kitchen furnished with built-in grills, an ice maker, refrigerator, bar seating and a harvest table.
