The firm’s goals in relocating were to accommodate firm growth and allow for greater presence in the Houston market. The firm also wanted to create a space of their own after working in a space designed for a different firm for several years. A total of 40 attorney offices have been provided, along with the requisite support functions, in 21,382 RSF. A sliding pocket door, completely concealed during business hours, allows for an open, seamless and welcoming entry from the elevator lobby. A conference center off of reception includes a large dividable multi-purpose room, a large conference room, and a training room along with a servery and stone catering counter.
Warm toned finishes such as bottincino marble and figured walnut, and design elements such as light coves, reference the firm’s Dallas office while also creating a sense of place unique to Houston. Ceiling details, light coves and accent carpet areas at office fronts provide rhythm and scale at long corridors, while large side lights with custom privacy film funnel daylight into the interior of the space.
