Last year, the Houston Endowment launched a two-stage design competition seeking the team to design their new $20 million headquarters, which will enable the philanthropic organization to move their current offices into the city's business district. The 40,000-square-foot building will provide healthy workspaces, accessible meeting spaces, and flexible engagement facilities for the organization's staff and community partners.
Most recently, the Houston Endowment unveiled the four finalist designs by multi-disciplinary teams led by Deborah Berke Partners, Olson Kundig, Kevin Daly Architects, and Schaum/Shieh Architects, who were shortlisted from 121 teams representing 22 countries last August and each received a $50,000 honorarium. The jury unanimously selected the design by Kevin Daly Architects and PRODUCTORA, while Olson Kundig received an honorable mention.
The project is currently slated for a 2022 opening.
Here's a look at the finalist designs:
Kevin Daly Architects with PRODUCTORA, TLS Landscape Architecture, Arup and Transsolar (and Houston-based Kirksey Architecture)
Olson Kundig with Surfacedesign, Inc
Deborah Berke Partners with DAVID RUBIN Land Collective and Atelier Ten
Schaum/Shieh Architects with HKS and Andrea Cochran Landscape Architecture
