Rhythm Apartments, a 327,145-sf multifamily complex located in northwest Austin, has recently completed construction. The 262-unit community features multiple public areas and amenities spread across its sprawling grounds.

Britt Design Group designed all the common spaces including the main lobby, club lounge, game room, business center, media lounge, model units, and the leasing office. Other amenities include a community garden, a pool, a fitness center, a pet park & pet grooming station, and bicycle storage and repair.

“This project was designed to contrast with the more residential-style apartments in the area. Although Rhythm is located in a more suburban context, the modern architecture, finishes and furniture lend to a more vibrant and urban feel -- something very different than what is currently available in the area,” said Laura Britt, Founding Principal, Britt Design Group, in a release.

The public amenities in the 7,500 sf Club House were designed to be an extension of the apartment units, providing residents with multiple spaces to work and play. The common spaces can function as work-from-home environments and support group gatherings post-pandemic. The Club Lounge includes a kitchenette, a coffee bar, and a TV and lounge area with a variety of seating options that include privacy and social distance work stations and a custom designed communal table with built-in power.

The Business Center was designed specifically for working from home and features multiple spaces that allow residents to work in a variety of settings. These options include work pods with built-in desks, a freestanding banquette with built-in power tables, and a conference room that can be used to host meetings. The Game Room features shuffle board, a pool table, and an outdoor life-size scrabble board.

HPI Residential is the project’s developer.
