300 Colorado
Austin, USA
Pickard Chilton
An impressive building thanks to its 32 floors: "300 Colorado" stands out among the other buildings specifically created for offices located in the center of Austin, Texas. A modern architectural structure that stands out for its fine details and exceptional lighting and which opens to visitors onto an elegant hall, enriched and highlighted by Henraux marble.

The first building built by the Pickard Chilton studio in Austin, TX, "300 Colorado" integrates perfectly with the urban fabric of this vibrant, dynamic and modern American city and contributes in a unique way to enriching its skyline. The Pickard Chilton architecture firm has chosen timeless natural stones and exceptional Italian marbles for the creation of 300 Colorados, carefully selected to offer timelessness and elegance to this project. Henraux thus supplied all the marble and various natural stones needed for the hall’s cladding, the floor and for the reception desk. Roman travertine was chosen for the wall cladding, a stone with marked horizontal veins characterized by natural beauty, used by the Romans and for some of the most iconic monuments in Rome and the Vatican.

The contrast between the Roman Travertine of the cladding, with its delicate cream color and the depth of the Jet Mist granite, a dark gray stone used for the floor, makes the hall a luxurious environment with a strong and decisive character.

The reception desk, central element of the imposing hall, is the result of Henraux's craftsmanship in marble transformation and the beauty of natural stone. The Graphite marble, a dark stone whose marked light veins animate the design of the desk, have been matched on the external corners giving the impression of a desk carved from a single block of marble.
For the vanity tops of the “300 Colorado” toilets, Astral Gray marble was used, a light gray stone that harmonizes well with the shades of the other bathroom elements.

Finally, Versilys marble (coming from the Henraux quarries, on Monte Altissimo, Seravezza) was used to model the inserts used for the handles of the main entrance door to the hall where - in homage to Henraux - Pickard Chilton wanted the logo “HX1821” engraved next to the building name. The result is exceptional: balance of shapes and nuances, which allows visitors to appreciate the attention to detail and the architectural style, highlighted by the precious marbles artfully used by Henraux.
