ARCHITECTURE


Our History Inventure was founded in 1997 to support people, solve their design problems and empower their visions. Over twenty years later, our clients continue to enjoy the services of a company that thinks differently, intentionally fosters a culture of innovation, and builds lasting client relationships. We originally developed our people-centered design process out of Jim’s house, a unique start-up environment created to support the advancement of new ideas and award-winning design solutions. Our clients selected us over larger, more established firms for our tailored solutions. We were pulled onto large corporate and healthcare projects and rapidly grew by embracing technology like 3D visualization software and by partnering with other top-tier firms drawn to our ability to repeatedly produce inspired, refined work of the highest quality. In 2004, we greatly expanded our offerings from corporate interiors and healthcare to include experiential design, retail and industrial. A decade and a half later, we have offices in Houston, Dallas, Nashville and Tulsa and complete projects around the world. The year we opened, we became one of the first firms to elevate the standard of interior architecture in the South. We sought to understand our clients’ goals, create custom solutions and ensure the process was seamlessly enjoyable throughout. Our commitment to our clients’ success, our understanding of their needs, and our investment in their people yields the great design we are now known for.

Invisioning InVisioning was developed to help our clients with the design process throughout the lifecycle of a project. Through the use of object based CAD software, we are working in 3D at all times, even during preliminary Test-Fits. As a result, we are able to show our clients how the space will look in 3D at a stage when decisive decision making will quicken the overall process.

RENDERING

As the preliminary drawings progress, we are able to modify and update the 3D views as changes are requested to allow the client to walkthru the space and view updates in real time. When the design becomes finalized, we use a software package in-house that gives a photorealistic view of the design and implements the actual finishes. This powerful software, used by Sony and Pixar, allows clients to actually ‘see’ the final space. The last phase of inVisioning is the use of a tablet-based application that allows the client to have the final working drawings and images linked to the actual CAD-based information model. This app gives the client and the contractor the ability to access a complete set of current drawings with the touch of a finger. Using touch based controls, the app allows simple navigation around and through the workspace.

Spring 2020

A 54,000 sf office expansion to an active industrial and manufacturing complex near Waller, Texas. The overall design aesthetic was a large hurdle to overcome. Our task was to add an expansion on top of the existing lab and make the design blend into the existing office building facade. The coordination between the Architecture, MEP, and Structural was instrumental to make this expansion work. The design team was tasked to provide an office expansion space that combined some of the clients’ existing office strategies with current office design standards. This was a collaborative process that engaged several user groups, department heads, and the A&E team. We blended the existing color palette with new materials to help combine the new design with the existing Tilt-Wall structure. The addition of stair towers allowed us to update the entire facade while keeping its original design intact.

The process was so successful that it sparked conversations about applying these new updated design strategies to the entire campus. This project allowed us to demonstrate how to merge and update workplace strategies within an existing office culture.

100,000 sf administration building to support Daikin’s main campus. The project’s main objective was to provide additional admin space, executive floors, mail center, gym, cafeteria, and conference center for the campus. The strategy was to create a new building that doesn’t compete with the main entrance. Travel distance was also a primary concern. One of the main features was the sky bridge connecting the new building to the existing office space. The sky bridge would allow employees within both buildings to use all of the same amenities. This new building allowed additional space and flexibility for employees and departments to work more collaboratively.

The buildings’ connection provided the correct adjacencies and separation required for dayto-day functions to work more effectively and efficiently.

This small office building was designed within a mixed-used area in Houston. With a blend of residential and industrial sites surrounding the neighborhood, creating a building that would fit into its surroundings was the project’s primary aesthetic challenge. The client requested a new office space for their manufacturing and metal coating division on the neighboring lot while paying attention to the surrounding residential neighborhood, and the re-gentrification of the area.

With that in mind, we approached the design as a townhouse, with large open-concept workstations on the ground floor and the upper- floor functioning as the office space for the ownership and management group. Given the location of the property, sun exposure was of great concern for the building, so the shade devices and slatted railings on the required stairs were designed to allow for natural light to flood the space without causing major heat or glare issues on the interior of the building. The result was a residentially appealing and an industrially functional space.

1999

Inventure was asked by Cameron Control’s Project Manager to design a 40,000 rsf headquarters building and a 20,000 sf shop/manufacturing building in Northwest Houston. The two-floor headquarters building, built a long and narrow site, consisted of closed offices and open workstations. Parking and truck access dictated the location of the building and a shared reception area required a covered loggia across the first floor. A dramatic red stair tower anchored the west facade and provided a signpost for the building at street level. An A-Frame metal building with two lare overhead cranes attached to the head-

quarters at the rear of the building to provide the manufacturing space. The air conditioning systems for the manufacturing and research areas incorporated sophisticated controls and air stratification provided a cost-effective, energy-efficient HVAC solution.
