HomeAway Inc. Global Headquarters

Join us for a tour of the HomeAway Inc. global headquarters.  HomeAway, one of Austin’s hottest new companies, has grown rapidly to become the worldwide leader of online vacation rentals, representing more than 475,000 vacation rental home listings across more than 120 countries.  HomeAway’s new 51,000 SF office was designed by CTA Architects Engineers and constructed by SpawMaxwell .

The design goal for the office aimed to capture and celebrate the excitement, adventure and relaxation that characterize the vacation experience while creating a work environment that is beautiful, inspiring and functional. The approach was to tap into the core values of this young and dynamic company to create a solution centered on connections – between people and places, goals and purpose, work and leisure.  Connections are made to the company’s overall mission by exhibiting iconic objects and materials throughout the space such as snow globes and other travel souvenirs that are emblematic of the vacation experience.

Providing a healthy environment for its employees while being a great steward of the environment is very important to HomeAway.  To this end the space was designed following USGBC LEED guidelines and has been awarded a LEED-Commercial Interiors GOLD certification. 

The tour will take place on May 20th, 5:30pm and the program will include information from the design team describing the aspects of the project that led to achieving LEED Gold-CI certification.
