  5. 5. The African American Cultural and Heritage Facility (AACHF) renovates and expands upon the historic Dedrick-Hamilton House. The new facility provides office, meeting, and performance space. AACHF accommodates the Greater Austin Black Chamber of Commerce and the City’s Office of Arts and Cultural Resources. The extension incorporates a visitor museum and gift shop while maintaining a similar scale and color palette of the original structure. Finished in January of 2014, this 4.4 million dollar LEED Gold certified project has sensitively restored the aesthetic of the traditional building by maintaining a similar scale and other elements that align with the existing structure. Most importantly serving as a community engagement center, the building enriches the visitor and employee experience by ensuring 98 percent of the total 2,065 square feet of regularly occupied area has access to views. These views showcase the site’s 1,060 square feet of water efficient landscaping in addition to rooftop plantings and a vibrant, dedicated mural in the complex’s courtyard. This preservation site showcases 9,570 square feet of site restoration, nearly half of the total site area, as well as 2,070 square feet of vegetated open space. Focusing on informing the public on social issues that face local African American communities, the 85 peak building visitors and employees on site are provided with day lit open spaces to educate, perform, and engage.
