Situated in Downtown’s 2nd Street District, Austin Proper Hotel and Residences offers an artful immersion in lifestyle and well-being. With emphasis on collaboration, the passionate, compelling vision of designer Kelly Wearstler meets the culinary creativity of Austin tastemaker McGuire Moorman Hospitality. Essentials include 244 rooms and suites; 99 branded residences; four unique settings for dining and drink; a focus on wellness with a dedicated spa and fitness center; plus a variety of atmospheric spaces for events. And it wouldn’t be Proper without a 5th floor pool deck offering small-batch tequilas and Lady Bird Lake views.


Building


Joining the Downtown skyline in 2019: 32 stories merging a 244-room destination hotel with 99 exclusive residences. This sculptural new construction integrates the work of award- winning Handel Architects and interior designer Kelly Wearstler in a progression of atmospheres including two pools, 14,500 square feet of event spaces, and multiple dining concepts by McGuire Moorman Hospitality. In step with Austin’s natural lifestyle, LEED® Gold certification minimizes footprint and maximizes sustainability. To promote wellness for those who stay and work with Proper, these rigorous environmental standards extend from water use (reclaimed irrigation systems, in-building chilled water loops, centralized boilers) to low-VOC paints, energy-efficient LED lights, and insulated dual-pane windows that save energy and block UV.


Interior Design


Kelly Wearstler’s creative direction for the design of Austin Proper has unfolded over three years. The layered, individualis- tic look mines a tradition of artistry and craftsmanship distinct to Austin. The historical influence of Austin’s most stately homes inspires eye-catching details including a sculptural staircase installation of patch-worked vintage rugs. Local artists and materials are featured prominently throughout, with every surface adding textural interest: pots, trays and cabinet inlay tiles by ceramicist Rick Van Dyke; photography by local Barry Stone; locally quarried travertine on the pool deck; custom millwork cypress shou sugi ban paneling and antique mirror finishes.


Rooms & Suites


With Austin as muse, each the of 244 rooms and suites have been thoughtfully designed by Kelly Wearstler for refined living and restful evenings. The design is deeply influenced by local craft and material, from raw travertine sourced at nearby quarries, to trays by Rick Van Dyke and original fiber artworks by Magda Sayeg. Well-considered appointments include Aesop bath amenities, Kelly Wearstler x Parachute Home robes and signature Proper beds layering Simmons Providence Mattresses, Fili D’oro and Bellino Fine Linens.
