The Challenge

Integrating a new 40-story residential tower into a well-established area like Post Oak in Houston poses several exciting challenges and opportunities, both architecturally and practically. Here were three key aspects we considered when designing this project:

Architectural Harmony: One of the primary goals we established was to ensure Aspire Post Oak harmonizes with the existing architectural landscape of Post Oak. As we begun the design phase, we studied existing architectural styles in the area and begun designing in a way that complements, rather than detracts from, the overall aesthetic appeal of the area.

Materials and Façade Design: Selecting appropriate materials and designing an attractive façade are essential for ensuring that Aspire Post Oak contributes positively to the existing streetscape renovation led by the Post Oak District.

Pedestrian-Friendly Design: Given the emphasis from the Post Oak District regarding the vibrant streetscapes, Aspire Post Oak prioritized pedestrian accessibility and comfort.

The Solution

Given the challenges of integrating Aspire Post Oak into the well-established area in Houston, we implemented the following solutions throughout our design and project management process.

Material Consistency: By selecting the same materials as the existing sidewalk pavers, and taking them all the way to footing of Aspire Post Oak, the new residential tower blends seamlessly into the existing streetscape, enhancing the overall coherence and visual continuity of the neighborhood. Instead of separating the project from the ROW we chose to create a sense of unity and reinforce the existing character of the area.

Enhanced Streetscape: Utilizing consistent materials not only ensured visual harmony but also contributed to the creation of an enhanced streetscape. The uniformity of materials along sidewalks, and building exteriors created a cohesive and inviting pedestrian environment, encouraging pedestrians  activity and social interaction.

Coordinated Design Process: Coordinating with other design consultants, including architects, urban planners, landscape architects, and transportation engineers, was essential for achieving this holistic and integrated design solution.
