Whitestone Builders Interior Architecture - Post #1

MERGE Architects recently finished interior architecture for Whitestone Builders new office space located at 927 Studewood St. The design is currently in permitting with the City of Houston and we anticipate approval soon. The new office space is approximately 2,500 sf in size and includes a flex space along with open office space. The digital renderings above display the design intent. Whitestone Builders is going to self perform the build out and we can’t wait to share images of the progress and final finished space.

Sherwood Forest Modern Residence - Post #1

This exceptional residence designed by MERGE Architects is approximately 70% complete and will soon be another "jewel box" in Design Principal Keith Messick's portfolio.  It is eloquently tucked into the prominent neighborhood of Sherwood Forest in Houston.  The material palette is extraordinary and the ventilated facade is beautiful yet functional.  Function over form is our mantra but we strive to create unique structures by intelligently blending the two.

Modern in the wake of Harvey - Post #1

Hard to believe it's been close to a year since Hurricane Harvey wreaked havoc on our great city.  Clean up was somewhat well organized and speedy for all intensive purposes, but the recovery is definitely taking longer than most would have anticipated.  Thousands of homes and businesses remain empty, uninhabitable, and "broken".  These buildings are the dwellings that bring our neighborhoods to life and promote the human fabric and interaction that is so desperately needed to reactivate the affected areas.  

We have been approached by many clients throughout the Memorial Villages and Meyerland along the Buffalo Bayou whose homes were severely damaged or desecrated.  In most cases, there is little that can be done without starting with a new build... ground up.  However, in some cases, the existing structure is still sound and the architectural elements are worth saving.  

This home located in Piney Point Village is such a case.  Built in 1976, the architectural style is 70's modern and was very progressive for its time.  The homeowners wanted to maintain the "look and feel" of the original structure but take the opportunity of the Harvey flood damage to completely renovate the interior and exterior.  What has been designed thus far via Keith Messick (lead principal and architect) and the MERGE team will propel this home straight into the 21st century and beyond.  More to come...
