Lush. Active. Sophisticated. Dramatic. Our firm guided the rebirth of this Houston Texas property by utilizing high impact design within a low budget. We rebranded and renovated the existing clubhouse to best support leasing efforts while accommodating a variety of social and functional needs. The high end hotel lobby aesthetic was accomplished through a rich neutral background using local materiality with dramatic statements of lighting, ceiling features and textured finishes. We advised the clients in thoughtful ways to spend resources and identified ways to phase the project to remain fully functional during construction. Installing new flooring over existing porcelain tile to eliminate demo costs and disruption along with refurbishing cabinetry were a few ways this was accomplished. The new design maximizes existing accents such as the understated existing fireplaces while minimizing dramatic bulkheads. We removed walls and added glass to leasing offices for better sight-lines between staff and to better connect with residents. The client is thrilled with successful leasing rates despite the pandemic. Every design detail was managed and coordinated remotely from our Michigan studio.
