In the past ten years, The Domain has emerged as an iconic and unique Austin destination. In combination with the surrounding mixed-use development and the redevelopment that is occurring along the Burnet corridor, the area has become a major activity center in the city, second only to the downtown core. The Domain II is the second phase of the master-planned Domain mixed-use development. MAS was commissioned to develop preliminary design concepts aimed at enhancing the public environment and retail identity of Domain II. By developing an improved central plaza that enhances the visibility of retail storefronts, MAS's design provides opportunities for a wide range of activities during both day and nighttime hours.
