Look and See Vision Care

Look+See Vision Care is now open in South Austin. What started as an empty commercial shell, Look+See Vision Care is a full interior-finish out that includes a relaxing front of house with display area for 800 frames, a casual lounge in ample natural light, and dispensing areas for trying on and comparing various frames and brands. The design also includes an in-house lab where lenses are crafted by hand, specialty testing and evaluation areas, 3 exam rooms, a break area, and offices.

The architecture works closely with existing branding to create a cohesive and comfortable environment that is memorable, recognizable, and functional. Expansion and growth were carefully considered, as all spaces were designed with the future of Look+See in mind.

Simple and natural materials act as a neutral palette and backdrop for frames, lenses, and customers to stand out. Floating reclaimed wood shelves, built by Hatch Workshop, are accentuated with painted undersides that articulate the existing Look+See branding colors, providing nuanced bursts of colors against white concrete block walls as the shelves turn and fold around through the space.

About Matt Fajkus Architecture
Matt Fajkus Architecture (MF Architecture) is an award-winning and licensed architecture office that welcomes residential and commercial projects of various scales and budgets. The practice offers competitive design fees without compromising design quality and the body of work seeks simple and holistic solutions to complex problems by blending expertise and experimentation.

Full-service Practice + Academic Think Tank. MF Architecture is led by Matt Fajkus, AIA, who is also a Tenure-Track Professor at the University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture. As a young and energetic collaborative, the firm is simultaneously an academic think tank, directly connected to theoretical and technological research at UT, while practicing as an office deeply focused on realizing exceptional buildings.

Nature, People and Buildings Cohabitation. The design work of MF Architecture is based on the belief that each project is unique, as it should be driven by the client, the site and its surroundings, satisfying the rights of all inhabitants while fulfilling functional requirements with individuality, rather than being a singular, preconceived aesthetic.

Adaptable Spaces with Sustainable Strategies. The firm possesses advanced knowledge in sustainable design principles, and the office is driven by the optimism that we live in an ideal time to affect positive change locally and globally, all accomplished through intelligent design. Adaptable spaces accommodating the present and the future are achieved by flexible plan layouts, indoor and outdoor flows, and energy-efficient methods including passive daylighting, natural ventilation, and intelligent material choices, compositions and detailing.

Unexpected Elements from Everyday Objects. The team has a passion rooted in expanding the conventional reach and impact of architecture among the general public and within popular culture. Everyday objects are often taken as inspiration for their simplicity but unlimited potentials and relevance to create extraordinary and functional architectural elements.

Open and Collaborative Design Process. MF Architecture promotes a transparent design process including a direct collaboration with client and builder. Likewise, the office fosters honesty and functionality in design itself, with a belief in balancing restraint and expression in broad design moves as well as details. The team enthusiastically takes on the unique challenges presented by each project to inspire highly creative, cost-effective solutions meant to enhance building performance and daily life as a whole.
