The Loren Hotel Austin, known for its dedication to Austin’s art, cultural scene and community, announced the re-opening and re-imagining of Paggi House in March 2024. The historic landmark, which sits on the hotel grounds, was built in the 1880s and has been carefully restored by The Loren to become a gallery, event space and philanthropic community asset.

“Our goal has always been to create an atmosphere that would promote innovation, open-mindedness and creativity, and to be able to do that in such a beloved space in Austin is very exciting. Our place in and connection to the community in Austin is so important to us, and we are delighted that we are offering this space to philanthropic organizations in Austin,” says Stephen King, founder of The Loren Hotels.
