Austin Office

With an increasing share of the firm’s workload coming from relationships with Austin-based entities such as Cypress Real Estate Advisors, Aspen Heights, Endeavor, and Life Austin, GFF opened our Austin Office in April 2018. Among our notable Austin projects are the Aspen Heights West Campus Tower, the mixed-use Corazon development on East 6th Street, the Lantana Ridge Office Building now serving as YETI’s new headquarters on Southwest Parkway, and the amphitheater/outdoor worship center for Life Austin.

GFF is committed to transferring our culture of civic engagement and volunteerism to Austin. Led by Managing Director Jim West and Studio Director Sara Good, the Austin team consists of a mix of the company’s Dallas professionals relocating to Austin and local hires at the new graduate and mid-career levels.

The Austin Office is a cohesive mix of individuals who all share a passion for architecture. Whether designing a 300-unit multifamily project, an English pub, or an office building, their desire to create lively and inviting spaces shines through. The office thrives on community and enjoys being a part of the larger GFF brand.
