The CBRE Workplace360 Houston office is located in the Williams Tower at the Galleria. It is a 78,000 SF three-level build-out with 13,000 SF on Level 2, 17,000 SF on Level 4, and 48,000 SF on Level 5. The office has an open area concept, where each employee does not have an assigned desk, but rather is working in open area workstations. Offices are mainly used for focus rooms, huddle rooms, office-for-a-day, or conference rooms.
This project included the demolition of the existing space prior to build-back. Level 5 had its challenges, as this is a steel building with some settling at the core, creating issues with tying each of the four areas of this level together. Levels 4 and 5 included adding an interconnecting stairway for employees to walk between the two floors. In keeping with the open concept, Level 5 has exposed ceilings with acoustical ceiling clouds throughout the floor. All levels utilize demountable partitions for office fronts.
Vp2 Partners and EVERSON Developments engaged Ziegler Cooper Architects to design the Vision Park Medical Building, a 58,000-square-foot medical office and surgery center on 3.5 acres, at 121 Vision Park Boulevard in Shenandoah, Texas.
The three-story building is clad in a crisp combination of glass and precast facade, with the north-facing side of the building featuring floor-to-ceiling glass windows, as well as a generous and welcoming covered drop-off area. The exterior of the building features enhanced landscaping to help the structure more seamlessly blend with the surrounding natural greenery of Shenandoah. The interior common areas feature a warm modernist design aesthetic to foster a hospitality-oriented feel to all those who enter the building.
This new development was completed in August 2019. It serves the medical office needs of the surrounding community, rich with healthcare facilities because of the retiree demographic of the area, and is conveniently located next door to Avanti Living, an award-winning assisted living community.
