FINANCIAL SERVICES


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.

Markel, a holding company for insurance and investment operations globally, called on Inventure after our work on the SureTec headquarters Based in Virginia with an international reach, Markel wanted their Houston office to remain consistent with their branding standards. Our design team chose finishes that would blend with the other Markel locations to create that sense of cohesion and brand stability. Warm tones and residential-style lighting give a comfortable yet polished look to the space.

Blue Spruce Capital is a private financial firm that wanted to create an inviting office space for both employees and guests. The main conference room and Breakroom are the focal points of the office space. Blue Spruce Capital Corporation retained Inventure Design for a second time to assist in their relocation to a new office space. As a private financial services firm with offices in Colorado and California, Blue Spruce wanted an elegant space appropriate for their professional clientele. Inventure completed the interiors, graphics, furniture services, and project management for the move.

The main concept was to have a corporate reception and conference room with a polished aesthetic. A more casual workspace with a breakroom and wine bar bisected the office space with the area opening up to workstations and offices in the back. The expansive breakroom was inspired by restaurants the client visited throughout the design process.

Intrua Financial, an independent wealth management firm, wanted to move from a dated office space to the Greenway Plaza area. Taking their clientele into consideration, the client wanted to upgrade to a more elegant office and brought Inventure Design on to design a professional and dynamic space. Inspiration for the design was derived from the company’s logo. An enlarged version was emphasized in the lobby, greeting clients as they stepped off the elevator. The design

team also integrated the logo’s sharp angles and soft curves and pulled from its muted colors with pops of brighter ones. Glass fronts, open floors, and polished concrete were incorporated throughout the space. A requirement of the space was a conference room that could open up to be a gathering area for everyone during the firm’s big annual event, and this was a focal point of the design.

Deutsche Bank is a multinational investment bank and financial services dedicated to economic growth and societal progress. Our design of this German-based banking company’s headquarters was European inspired and focused on functionality. The light woods and luminous colors that unified the space complimented the textured glass wall as a focal point. Our design team created a museum quality, but muted backdrop to display the company’s impressive art collection.

Inventure Design created two separate identities for Armadillo Financial and Johnson Law Group, who share the top floor of a first generation space in Kirby Grove. The overarching theme of dressing up industrial design features into a chic atmosphere included exposed structures, polished concrete floors, painted steel and raw aluminum. Wood panels in warm hues are strategically placed behind the reception area to create a more welcoming first impression of the office. Offices, work spaces, meeting rooms and IT closets are kept separate while common areas such as the mezzanine, board room and break room are shared between the companies. The mezzanine was created as a way to utilize the tall 22’ ceilings and the view of the Texas Medical Center, while also adding an additional 1,000 usf. The design included refurbished used furniture, excluding the new reception desk, as a practical way to decrease costs without diminishing the overall aesthetic.
