EIGHTFOLD | architecture, master planning
EIGHTFOLD is a revolutionary development taking form in East Austin. Rich in culture and intended as a mixed-use campus, EIGHTFOLD’s philosophy is based on the tenets of the Buddhist Noble Eightfold Path. It is designed to create a community without boundaries, transcending traditional work and life environments and awakening the body, mind, and spirit.
Emphasizing a connection with nature, our design considers the idea of expansive and connected living. Inspired by Texas Dance Halls, Runa Workshop proposed a series of structures that capture the essence of these historic buildings which focus on family, history, romance and a way of life. Exuding soul and promoting the EIGHTFOLD lifestyle, we knew this was the authenticity the site desired.
