FROM THE CLIENT
"Mayfield and Ragni designed the public spaces, as well as an apartment model, with art throughout. Considering that it's just a few blocks north of the Museum District, an art-filled building was a given".
– Diane Cowen, Houston Chronicle

“High Art: Built to blend with the sleeky hallowed halls of the MFA and Asia Society, and animated with hip new art installations, The Southmore high-rise has arrived in the Museum District” - by Meredith Xavier, Houston City Book, November 2017
The Southmore elevates the Houston multi-family market with a refined aesthetic that draws inspiration from its exclusive location in the heart of Houston’s museum district. The slender 24 level tower sits just north of Herman Park on oak-lined Caroline Street, directly across from the Asian Society. This unique location served as the fodder for the design concepts. Inspired by the serenity of the Asian Society building, the design team integrated Asian minimalism with soft modern aesthetic and celebrated the site’s urban greenery by blurring line between indoor and outdoor. Energized by the vibrancy of the art culture in the Museum District, the design team pushed their signature fusion of art & architect further with The Southmore. Site specific art installations, rooted in the neighborhood's district, were integrated with into design, creating a marriage of art and architecture.
