NARRATIVE

The St. Andrie at Buffalo Heights is a multi-use residential entertaining space for a youthful mixed-use rental complex. The residence lounge sits atop an H-E-B in the Buffalo Heights district on Washington Avenue and blends functionality for residents to gather, game or dine in one open space within a niche foodie centric environment. The open lounge area is designed specifically for these uses and is subdivided by three floating boxes: the cook box, dine box and work box. The dine box is encased by custom shelves with integrated glazing and sliding glass walls to allow for private use of the space as a meeting or dining room. The cook box is anchored with a gas cooktop island often used for cooking classes by H-E-B’s renowned culinary chefs. The work box houses the leasing offices and workroom and is tucked away from the residence lounge as to not intermix the two functions. Sprinkled around the dine, cook and work boxes are co-working tables, gaming tables and other lounging zones. The spaces open onto one another and visually connect to enhance lively and active entertaining from day to night. The spaces are also connected to an outdoor breezeway so guests can take in the sunset by the fire pit while listening to the running water of a fountain feature and a custom laser-cut Buffalo Heights stenciled Corten light boxes that transform the day and night experience.
