PDR is proud to work with Spear Street Capital and Endurance Builders to design the 5 Houston Center Lobby. The lobby renovation, featured in the Houston Business Journal, will include a coffee shop and cafe, a fine dining space, a new fitness center, a tenant lounge and more.
One unique design element within the lobby are the hand blown lights that meander through the space, gaining volume at the entry. The lights reference nature with a cloud-like structure that blends with the outside views of Discovery Green. They were treated very much as an art installation based as a contrast to the formal design of the existing space. The lights are hand blown in Vancouver by a company called Bocci. What is interesting in their conception is that as they are blown, the artisan holds the glass with teflon gloves which then gives the glass a textured finish.
We look forward to completion by the end of this year and for tenants to enjoy the space!
