Established in 2007, Brett Zamore Design has gained national recognition for architecture that is sensitive to our surrounding conditions, mindful of the past, the present and the shifting, ever-changing world. Our LEED Accredited office designs buildings that are environmentally responsible, simple and modern yet warm in texture and composition. Each project is well thought out, captures the vision of our clients and are a unique fit within their natural context. By creating projects that adapt and readapt to different situations and needs, it is our belief that successful architecture makes a difference.

Founded by Karen Lantz, our firm, Lantz Full Circle is an expression of design concepts from inception to completion with thoughtful moves that pave the way to good design. Our team brings projects full circle, taking on roles in development, architecture, interiors, landscape and construction. The firm’s mission is driven by principles that guide us in determining which projects to seek and take on. We actively practice historic preservation, deconstruction, sustainable design and construction. Our goal is to create forward-thinking designs that make sense while embracing design ideals for a building that is wholly integrated with its environment.

m + a architecture studio is a small design and build firm located in Houston that focuses on individual projects and unique solutions to design problems. The firm’s work spans a range of residential and commercial projects – from very modest small scale projects to multi-million dollar homes.
MC2 Architects and MC2 Construction were founded on the belief that design and construction are inseparable. The firm was established in 1995 by Chuong Q.B Nguyen and Chung Q.B Nguyen to provide residential and commercial clients with the benefits of having every project component-from design through construction-informed and directed by a singular vision. The Nguyen brothers believe that both practical and aesthetic bonds intrinsically link the design and construction processes. For MC2, respecting those bonds produces the best combination of function, sensibility and good economics.

METALAB is a licensed architectural practice with previous experience in architecture, metal fabrication, industrial design, and manufacturing. While we have experience in projects ranging from small residential renovations, to large civic projects, we believe that the best work in any genre can be done by outliers with fresh perspectives, and as such, we specialize in everything and nothing. We offer standard architectural services, as well as design consulting services for projects or specialized spaces within a larger context. Our extensive experience in metal fabrication and project management in large scale civic arts grounds our design sensibility in the how-to. Our patents and innovations in sustainable technology gives us a deep understanding of what it means to be green. And our common dialect with engineers and fabricators across a broad range of scales give us the ability to realize unique and compelling solutions for the built environments. Taft + Metalab are working in collaboration on this project.
