In addition to the lobbies and residential units, Faulkner Design Group has designed two aqua lounges that overlook their respective swimming pools, a lounge with a city view of Dallas in The Flats, and a lounge in The Tower with views of the downtown area. “The overall goal of our interior design team was to blend the interior architecture and design elements with that of the contemporary exterior architecture, so that the feel of the entire project was consistent yet spectacular,” says project designer Ann Mueller, who is also Faulkner’s design director.
