“No two spaces alike” was the design mantra of the project’s interior designer, Chelsea Kloss. Each of the seven private study rooms features a distinct design. The spin room and yoga studio feel like one-off boutique concepts operating within the building and have identities all their own. The yoga room is flooded with natural light, stellar views, and earthy elements that conjure major zen. And the first-of-its-kind, dedicated spin studio is dark and moody like today’s popular spin concepts. Design elements sourced from local Austin tile suppliers, artists and boutiques give an Austin-cool, eclectic feel throughout the property.
It takes touring Moontower to truly understand the difference in its amenity spaces. At other projects, amenities such as pool decks, study rooms, and gyms are empty, but at Moontower, these spaces are active and alive. The study space is packed like a thriving WeWork, treadmills are taken, a student is hosting an impromptu spin class, and the pool deck is abuzz with energy even in the winter.
Moontower redesigned and re-imagined these “check the box” amenities. LV worked with student interns to help design the amenities and gave them the power to program them. The spaces are smaller and more intimate, but thoughtful layering with curated design elements gives them more energy per square foot™. They simply feel good.
