RETAIL DESIGN Art Gallery, Boutique, Showroom Space, Salon, Spa PROJECT Westlake Dermatology, River Oaks FIRM Michael Hsu Office of Architecture LEAD ARCHITECT Michael Hsu PROJECT DESIGNERS Tracie Gesch, Marisa Grande, Jesus Valdez, Brian Carville ADDITIONAL RECOGNITION Terralab Landscape Architects JUDGES' REMARKS "An elegant, limited palette of white and neutrals — a squeaky clean space with a curated selection of furniture, both freestanding and built-in. Love the sculpted, arched display niches with the marble panels. Also, the corduroy of woods behind the counter is original — nicely detailed. Good indirect reverse-cove lighting. This is an extremely well-detailed and sophisticated design — the definition of sleek." — Thomas Kligerman "Fresh and sculptural. The daylighting successfully collaborates with the clean palette without becoming clinical." — Eric J. Smith HONORABLE MENTION Lauren Wills, Wills Design Associates, for City Boots in River Oaks District COMMERCIAL DESIGN Office, Theater, Spiritual or Public Space PROJECT The Center for Pursuit FIRM Gensler, for Building Architecture LEAD ARCHITECT Tiger Lyon ADDITIONAL RECOGNITION Interior design, MaRS Culture. Landscape architect, TBG Partners. Lighting consultant, LAI JUDGES' REMARKS "This organization is engaged in a noble pursuit, and this campus design honors that. The courtyard part off the roadway is a time-tested solution for this urban scheme. The building successfully links to the greenspace and terraces at the center. The attenuated triple-height columns form a delicate screen around the beautifully detailed curtain walls. There is an appropriate variety in the shift to the brick buildings that keeps the complex from being too single-minded. The window muntin layout there is very good. A great design — I could go on. In short, a success." — Thomas Kligerman "Bright, fresh, cleanly detailed, and nicely integrating interior and exterior. The objective of flexibility appears to be well achieved." — Eric J. Smith HONORABLE MENTION Kelie Mayfield, Erick Ragni, MaRS Culture, for Block 162. Additional Recognition, building architecture Gensler CHASE DANIEL ERIC LAIGNEL (Continued) HOUSTON PAPERCITY DESIGN AWARDS 90
