EDUCATION


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.

The five-month renovation consisted of multiple classrooms, a design lab, a half-court gym, a teacher workroom, two staff offices, a conference room and a reception area. The design featured classroom fronts inspired by neoplasticism artist Piet Mondrian that infused film on glass with classic primary colors to inspire creativity for students. Wall-to-wall writeable surfaces for teaching and interacting are included in both the classrooms and hallways. The color blue was selected to be emphasized throughout the campus, through an accent wall and carpet tiles, because it promotes physical and mental relaxation while enhancing self-ex-

pression and communication. All furniture pieces were chosen to promote flexibility and collaboration within the classrooms. A custom greenscreen was installed in the design lab for the school’s photography and filming programs.

St. Mark’s Episcopal School engaged Inventure for design services to update their gymnasium and flex space. Inventure completed previous work for the school in 2015 on a new building and St. Mark’s wanted to incorporate the theme from that renovation. The 2015 design was heavily inspired by the Dutch painter Piet Mondrian, one of the pioneers of 20th century abstract art. The project included new millwork in the flex space and concession stand, new finishes in the restrooms and locker rooms, and new flooring and bleachers in the gymnasium. The prevalent feature in the gymnasium is the St. Marks Episcopal School Lions emblem in the center of the new floor.

Inventure renovated the Good Shepherd Episcopal School building to create a more vibrant and welcoming environment. The design improvements began by unmasking the existing high windows to bring natural light into the Library/Science and Art Center. Pairing daylighting with bold primary colors created an active space for young children that encourages learning. The custom film in softer hues brings a subtle pop of color to stimulate creativity. A new reception room and a staff office area were also created. The furniture and materials were chosen to promote an inviting, open atmosphere. Perch-style seating were used to encourage students and parents to interact with the teachers and staff.

When Texas A&M University approached our firm, we were honored to be a part of their groundbreaking Studies Center project. This project was compromised by two separate facilities that were physically linked in buildform and united in purpose. The Medical Research & Education Building, coupled with the Health Professions Education Center, were the first two buildings in Bryan, TX, that established HSC commitment to pursue medical arts and nursing instruction. They branded an emerging program and were purposefully built with an expansive and flexible design. This prepared the center to open on budget, on time and still be acceptable for the robust growth in the program. The new Health Science Center was a campus in a forest - a pleasant,

17

peaceful, comfortable place that inspired a healing environment. The campus portrayed an image of technology, yet preserved the natural environment, promoting a perception of safety, intimacy and friendliness. As a medical and academic destination, the campus was a flexible, collaborative, translational environment. It reflected “a lifetime of learning� with synergy, energy, momentum and possibilities.
