WORLD ARCHITECTURE / Dallas, Texas


ARCHITEXAS is the architectural firm responsible for the outstanding conversion of the 16-story historic Dallas National Bank Building (1927) into a 130 room boutique downtown hotel.  Called, the Joule Hotel, the project encompasses the original Gothic style highrise, plus a new adjacent 10-story addition.  Atop the addition is a dramatic swimming pool that cantilevers eight feet over the edge of the building.
 
Interior design is by Adam Tihany.  ARCHITEXAS, led by founder Craig Meade, was able to convert the historic building to its new uses while keeping the preservation standards required for a certified rehab tax credit.  Also, the historic fa├žade restored and added many missing original elements.
