The EIGHTFOLD Campus


EIGHTFOLD is a mixed-use development that will host affordable, multi-family apartment units, retail spaces, offices, and other unique amenities.



Located in East Austin, this work-live space will serve as a locale for community development and productivity with a focus on nature, sustainability, and organic resources. EIGHTFOLD Living is a forward-thinking complex for all forms of human activity and collaboration may that be professionally, socially or culturally.

The architectural design and cutting-edge infrastructure will create a setting for innovation and will be an experience within itself as community members benefit from both residential and commercial spaces. As a whole, this development promotes a balanced, conscious lifestyle with boundless opportunities. EIGHTFOLD Living poses itself to be a new chapter in the growing narrative of the City of Austin.



The EIGHTFOLD Story

When we first aspired to design EIGHTFOLD, we wanted to offer amenities to our community of companies that would breathe life and inspiration into their businesses. We looked to Google, Apple, Facebook, and other tech giants to study how their features enhanced the narratives of their companies. These are all companies that catered to the experiences and daily lives of their employees for the collective benefit of the company, consumer, and employee. With Austin’s history of being a natural home to start-ups, we sought to create a community masterfully designed around the needs of businesses of all sizes by weaving health, wellness, technology, architecture, and nature throughout our campus.

In designing EIGHTFOLD, we wondered if a collection of buildings could undo the traditional notion of offices, cubicles, and isolation. A single building is interpreted by its inhabitants on a daily basis, and it either illuminates or darkens their practices. The reality is that traditional office spaces are stifling to employees and businesses both, so we discarded the standard formula of an office park or business district and considered the daily lives of our development’s occupants. How could their fictive stories script the architecture and design of the campus as a whole?

We imagined each building as an organism or life form in and of itself with a series of spaces—conference rooms, informal meeting spaces, meditation rooms, and think tanks—to hybridize the technical and the social, the human and the performative sides to every well-functioning business. When the form of the building follows the functions of its occupants, we are able to liberate and help companies propel themselves into their industries. This ideology is only the mechanism and standard for the buildings as stand-alone structures on our campus. The campus as a whole is another story.

We envisioned our entire campus as a forest of experiential buildings designed to enhance the interconnectedness and wellbeing of its inhabitants.

As a nesting ground for unique, forward-thinking businesses, EIGHTFOLD allows each company to orchestrate and animate its own customized domain. Every tenant’s conceptual vision will become an explicit engagement in physical reality all while still being a part of the campus’ unifying circulatory system of nature trails, yoga spaces, retail spaces, and farm-fresh eateries.

The campus will feature lush, green nature trails, modern yoga studios, and peaceful meditation spaces to help clear minds, spark imagination, and re-center visitors. To top off the wellness features on campus, a revolutionary medical-wellness fusion facility will be home to physicians, nutritionists, life coaches, and health guides to help balance clinical and natural medical practices and offer cutting-edge medical care to the whole campus. Outside of the wellbeing of its occupants, EIGHTFOLD will offer a special brand of entertainment with its many retail spaces, farm-to-table eateries, theater productions, and art installments, all of which will be carefully selected. EIGHTFOLD is seeking environmentally responsible businesses, locally sourced restaurants, globally conscious retailers, and forward-thinking visionaries. Every retailer, restaurant, and business featured on campus will be carefully reviewed and selected according to their ethical standards and the degree to which they align with the founding tenets of EIGHTFOLD.

Our Vision

Located in Austin, Texas, EIGHTFOLD is a development where inspiration meets emotions for an unforgettable experience. The natural beauty of the surrounding landscape pairs with inspiring architecture to create a stimulating environment for the mind, body, and soul. This unique community inspires its members to thrive in art, science, business, health, and anywhere else they desire to explore in order to live their most conscious, healthy, and innovative lives.

Intent

EIGHTFOLD will transform an abandoned industrial campus into a hub for creativity, education, and wellness, infusing the artistry of old infrastructure with the beauty of new developments and emphasizing a connection with nature throughout the property. The campus will promote creativity and in turn give back to the larger community, ensuring affordability and accessibility for all of Austin.

The Eight Pillars

EIGHTFOLD’s philosophy is based on the tenets of the Buddhist Noble Eightfold Path and is designed to create a community without boundaries, transcending traditional work and life environments and awakening the body, mind, and spirit. By focusing on natural restoration and modern technological innovation, EIGHTFOLD envisions a compact, diversified space to empower entrepreneurship, art, innovation, and wellness, interweaving all eight pillars into community members’ daily lives.
