Working with Michael Hsu Office of Architecture, we helped bring their design vision to life and document it appropriately for this adaptive reuse project that transformed 5 former industrial buildings into a lively, mixed-use development. M-K-T, located in the Heights neighborhood of Houston, has 100,000 square feet of creative office space and 150,000 square feet of chef-driven restaurants, first-to-market retailers, and studio fitness concepts. M-K-T connects to the Heights Hike and Bike Trail allowing for an indoor-outdoor connection in the center of an urban environment, as well as, including numerous bike racks throughout the design to allow easy access to the property directly from the trail and promote an active lifestyle. The client envisioned a diverse walkable campus that celebrated the original industrial history of the site while still creating an up to date look that allows people to gather throughout the day and create a main destination of eating, shopping, and working. With numerous tenants from offices to retail along with multiple outdoor zones that connect the five buildings, this design creates a sense of community that truly emulate the client’s original vision.
