Concerts, farmers’ markets, and play space bring life to the middle of a shopping mall

Simon Property Group and our team did more than just renovate a two-acre (one hectare) pedestrian space at The Domain in Austin, Texas. They broke down walls.

The previous design had created a visual and physical barrier that hid many storefronts, limited pedestrian use, and kept the site from becoming what it could be—a versatile multi-functional and community-oriented resource. The client challenged our design team to create a unique identity for Domain II, one that would remove these barriers, provide a flexible, open space, and greatly increase vibrancy.

The team’s versatile design allowed greater pedestrian traffic while creating a new space that fit The Domain’s aesthetic and architectural character. There’s a gathering area for social engagements, and it features a centrally-located great lawn. The great lawn—and the iconic cable shade structure above it—help to make Domain II a desired destination within the overall development.

As one of Austin’s signature pedestrian plazas, Domain II has become the place to go for festivals, seasonal events, live music, farmers’ markets, informal dining, fitness classes, kids’ play, and many other outdoor activities.
