Firm Continues to Grow Presence, Unveils New Advisory Council  


Houston, TX (​August 14, 2023​) – Texas-based architecture and interior design firm, Method Architecture, announces today that it has closed on the strategic acquisition of David Boggess Architects, a Houston-based firm with a wide range of commercial design expertise.  

In business since 1988, Founding Principal David Boggess sought a succession deal with Method Architecture to help steward the business as he transitions into retirement. Boggess will join Method’s Houston team in their new, East River office to aid in the transition period and will stay on in a strategic role as a member of Method’s new principal advisory council.   

“I’m delighted to be handing over the reins of David Boggess Architects to Method Architecture, a highly reputable and innovative firm in the industry,” David Boggess said. “Although I will not be handling the day-to-day management of projects, I will still be available to the Method team to help in any way I can. I’m incredibly thankful for being a part of this firm’s journey, and I’m looking forward to seeing the continued success of our projects in the capable hands of Method Architecture.”   

The deal marks a new milestone for Method Architecture as the firm establishes the Method Principal Advisory Council (MPAC) to provide an opportunity for select, executive-level leaders from acquired firms to continue their involvement in the legacy of their firm. David will retire from his role as Founding Principal at David Boggess and join Method Architecture as the third member of the Method Principal Advisory Council (MPAC), alongside Mac Ragsdale and Betty Trent, former owners of Architecture Plus in Austin.  

Boggess brings his more than 35 years of experience to assist with the transition and will focus on strategic insight and leadership in his advisory role.  

“Our Principal Advisory Council aims to incorporate founders and key members of the firms acquired into Method Architecture in a more seamless, holistic way.” Jackie Rye, Houston Market Principal, said. “The council will play a key role in shaping the future of Method , ensuring the expertise, innovation and diverse perspectives of each firm are harnessed to their fullest potential.”

Finalized on July 31, the deal is a natural fit for both firms serving clients across Texas based on a similar set of values and core design principles. Based in Houston, David Boggess Architects is known most prominently for the redevelopment of the Hughes Tool site in Houston’s East End and an operations and training center for Weatherford International in San Antonio. David Boggess Architects will close their Greenway Plaza-area office this September and transition all project materials to Method Architecture’s new space in Houston’s exciting new East River development.   

“We’re thrilled to welcome David and his portfolio of projects,” said Jake Donaldson, Managing Principal of Method. “It’s our hope that with establishing our new Method Principal Advisory Council that we can harness the knowledge and experience of these leaders to help us carry forth their legacy into the next generation of design and our firm.”
