ABOUT THE FIRMS:
1907 Sabine Street, Suite 140
Bexhill is a collaborative, client-focused design studio located in Houston, TX with expertise in architecture, planning, interior design and design-build. They have the ingenuity, experience and knowledge required to achieve successful project outcomes — whether an aesthetic remodel, a complex healthcare renovation, or new building designed from the ground up. Bexhill has successfully delivered projects in healthcare, science and technology, higher education, aviation and commercial.
Four Square Design Studio
1810 Summer Street
Four Square Design Studio is a boutique design firm focusing on residential and small commercial projects. Although they work on a range of types of projects, including new construction, they are particularly known for historically-sensitive additions and renovations, and for knowledge of historic (19th to mid-20th century) architectural styles and detailing. They also have extensive experience in navigating the Certificate of Appropriateness process mandated by Houston’s historic districts. More than anything else, they love working with clients who value good design, who share their aesthetic sense, and with whom they can forge an effective collaboration.
2500 Summer Street, #3114
Humanscale’s award-winning office solutions, including self-adjusting seating, sit/stand desks, monitor arms and task lighting, inspire movement and support the user in every posture.The firm abides by the philosophy that good design achieves more with less. Function, simplicity, and longevity, and sustainability are at the core of all their designs. When thinking through the design and manufacturing of each product, they carefully consider the materials and resources used, in aim of creating an overall net positive impact.
2219 Kane Street
Kinneymorrow Architecture is one of several small, reasonably new studios that should gain enough momentum to redefine the staid Houston architectural scene in coming years. What sets this cohort apart from its peers is the intellectual rigor of its design methodology. Rather than slapping together a collage of materials and boxy shapes—the kind that typically passes for modern architecture in the Houston market—Kinneymorrow’s designs arise out of a careful analysis of the program.
1502 Sawyer Street, #104
The WHL (Work-Heal-Learn) Spaces home is in The Silos on Sawyer - one of the buildings within the campus generally referred to as “The Art Silos.” It’s a little-known fact that the Art Silos is home to well over 300 artists - the largest consolidated art community in the United States. WHL Spaces proudly supports both the art community and our city by routinely featuring different artists in our spaces.
