Houston Business Journal 2015 Landmark Awards

The Houston Business Journal has announced their 2015 Landmark Awards Finalists.

CONTENT's collaboration with Southern Green Builders and Front Porch Properties was recognized as one of two finalists in the Green Project category. The Porch Street on Adele development is comprised of eight energy efficient homes that combine updated building techniques and modern detailing while respecting the existing neighborhood's scale and context. 

This year's entries were judged on impact to Houston, such as job creation, innovation, best use of land, site plan, development of surrounding neighborhoods, visual plan, amenities and being environmentally friendly.

HBJ will recognize all the finalists and reveal the winners in a special section of Houston Business Journal that publishes April 15 and at the Landmark Awards event, April 14 at the Omni Hotel Houston.

Casa Lobo in Texas Architect

CONTENT is so very pleased that Texas Architect Magazine has decided to feature Casa Lobo in the "Open House" section of the January/February 2016 issue. Erick and Mara have now welcomed little Moises into the home and it has become so much more wonderful than we could have imagined when we started the design. No doubt we are blessed that Mara, also an architect, supported our initial conception wholeheartedly and improved it tenfold with her great taste and a conception of their own!
