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.
The interior showcases local Texas fabricators and artists with custom conference tables designed by MHOA and fabricated by Litmus Industries, sculptural coffee table created by Michael Wilson and paintings by Patrick Puckett and Alma Haser. A unique, custom dried floral installation by Davy Gray greets visitors at the front door and travels along the window front above the main conference table.
