The Houston Creative Office for Michael Hsu Office of Architecture is located in the heart of the Heights Neighborhood. The building is a single-story, mid-century storefront that allows for a retail-like pedestrian interaction. MHOA embraced the mid-century feel by exposing the wood ceiling and maintaining the exterior storefront awning.
