Contemporary Icenhauer’s cocktail lounge, Texas, US
Austin-based architectural practice Michael Hsu Office of Architecture have completed the Icenhauer’s project. Completed in 2010, the luxury cocktail bar can be found in Austin, Texas, US.
Named for the business owners, Icenhauer’s is located in the up and coming Rainey Street bar district of the city. The site contained a house built in 1893, of which the front two rooms complete with original wood interior siding were saved and restored as a part of this new cocktail lounge. The existing gable roof of the house was maintained and modernised with ebony stained cedar siding.
Inside the contemporary Texas cocktail bar varying colours 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.
