Texas Architect is the official publication of the Texas Society of Architects, each edition features recently completed projects and other editorial content largely written by AIA members in Texas.

The Ultimate Window Source We designed this student housing village to have a warm, residential ambiance. Marvin Windows answered that challenge with windows that balance aesthetics and quality. Painted wood frames inside complement the home feeling that we wanted, and clad exteriors with insulating low-E glass with argon met our university client’s demanding performance needs. Marvin had a clean approach to putting its windows together in a bay motif on the outside stair towers. Marvin’s window assemblies gave us the most open effect possible.” — G.
