Located on the edge of a forested ravine running through sweeping green parkland, SXSW is all about resort-style living. SXSW offers stunning views of the surrounding landscape, as well as elegant suites and amenities that create a holistic connection between outdoor and indoor spaces.

The approach of the interior design is to bring a sense of vacation to everyday life, with shared spaces that evoke the energetic feel of a resort. Designed with wellness in mind, the aim is to create a comfortable, social atmosphere that promotes health and comfort through organic materials and a connection to others and to nature. The lobby at SXSW is designed to evoke a hotel-like feeling, where people can meet and feel connected to each other and the community. A grand two-storey reception area welcomes you in and is open to the adjacent amenities, which allows for easy movement between zones.

Seating areas, shared workspaces, and private meeting rooms also feature natural materials such as wood, marble, and glass. A private party room includes an impressive fireplace which emphasizes the high ceilings, as well as a terrace that bridges the connection between indoor and outdoor spaces. SXSW also incorporates greenery throughout the amenity spaces, such as a lush green wall in the reception area that is a visually impressive work of natural art.
