The outdoor classroom is the center of CMPBS life.

Fall 2016 Our fall collection was photographed at the Center for Maximum Potential Building Systems, a non-profit research laboratory for sustainable architecture founded in 1975 outside of Austin, Texas.

We placed our products among the architectural experiments underway at the Center, some active workspaces and others long unoccupied. The daily human activity at the site conveyed a strong sense of life, transforming any space, no matter how finished or how wild,  into one of industry, community, and leisure.

At Areaware, we stress the importance of place—the human tendency to create environments according to our values, experiences, and circumstances. We hope our products find their way into your home, lending as much energy and vitality to you as CMPBS lent to us.
