Plans for Houston Botanic Gardens unveiled

West 8’s plans for Phase One of Houston Botanic Garden, called “Botanic Beginnings” have been unveiled. Set to open to the public in fall 2020, the 120-acres of botanic gardens including wetlands, a children’s garden and nature play area, picnic groves, a tree farm, trails and an events lawn will welcome Houstonians from all walks of life.

Houston Botanic Garden’s first phase will be emblematic of the energy, diversity and spirit of Houston, America’s fastest growing, most multi-cultural metropolis. The garden will become a living museum that showcases international and native plant collections, hosts educational classes to children and adults, and provides engaging programming that will embrace the natural settings of the garden.

Ultimately, the garden will share beauty and bring joy, but also support a greater mission of conserving the diversity of plants from around the world and inspire appreciation for our precious natural world.

New Houston House
The site is a busy corner lot in a bustling part of Houston, so the interior of the house and the exterior landscape needed to cultivate a quiet sense of calm. Stylistically, Michael had to ease his parents’ transition from a series of more traditional homes to a more modern setting.

GSA Field Office
This is a new 275,000-sqft General Services Administration Office Building in Houston, Texas. The narrow plan responds to climate considerations, presenting broad faces to the south and north, and thin faces to the east and west. Concrete walls are sheathed in aluminum shingles that both reflect heat and allow the high thermal mass of the concrete to provide temperature stability for the structure.
