1819 Southmore: This tripartite home is divided into 3 stacked zones addressing the divisions of public & private space.
1st floor extends outward engaging views in the public realm with large expanses of glass filling cast in place concrete walls.
Breakfast area stretches outward with bespoke steel window in cast in place concrete wall and outdoor terrace off to side.
We recently came across a thought-provoking article by Jacoba Urist called The Psychological Cost of Boring Buildings. The article explains how scientific evidence shows that living and working in or around architecturally interesting buildings and varied, vibrant urban settings (read: no zoning) can lead to a happier and healthier life. We wholeheartedly agree! We can certainly think of lots of homes and neighborhoods that make us smile. There’s no sense in keeping the good feelings all to ourselves, so we’d like to share with you some of the structures that give us a thrill.
Take a look around Houston and you’ll find a variety of unique homes and styles from a host of different builders. Funny though then, that a number of our favorite homes come from the same source, Intexure. For over 15 years, Intexure has been designing environments for modern life with signature features, unmatched quality and genuinely innovative designs. It has led to the production of a number of homes that are simply a joy to look at and we are always excited whenever Intexure completes a new home. Here are a few Intexure homes which we find particularly impressive:
1815 Southmore, an ingenious live-work studio with office space on the ground floor and personal living space upstairs.
1819 Southmore, an AIA Design award-winning tripartite home full of sustainability features.
Chenevert Place, a series of four distinct townhouse style homes with breathtaking rooftop views of the city. 2 have already sold, but 2 are still available.This entry was posted in Recognize, Rediscover
