Museum District House | Houston, Texas
Jack Thompson Photography
Planned for a professional couple who like to entertain and are raising two young children, the house is organized as an exploration of rhythm and form. A narrow entry façade creates an understated street presence and introduces the material palette of pre-cast concrete panels, brick, and wood panels. The materials delineate the house’s simple organizational composition of two perpendicular rectilinear volumes intersecting to form two side courtyards and an expansive back yard. Sleek and sculptural interior spaces highlight the interplay of natural light with materials chosen both for richness and durability. The design creates an abundance of communal spaces for the family and establishes easy connections between interior and exterior spaces.
