Office Pavilion

Project description

Office Pavilion, located along Beltway 8 North at the intersection of Highway 290 in
Houston, Texas, was constructed to function as a showroom for the company’s office
furnishing products. The building design incorporates expressions of freestanding Tilt-
Up panel wall fins, which are used for signage and canopy support. The two-story glass
curtain wall further defines the entry with the showroom spaces and offices beyond the
entry. In addition, a structural glass system and clerestory were utilized. A particularly
unique detail of this project is the horizontal red sunshades which no only help define
the entry but are integrated into the exterior to provide shading, and the interior where
they become an exhibition wall for Office Pavilion products. The company was able
to move its headquarters from a leased facility to a building they will own for a similar
price.
