Located in downtown Houston, 1301 Fannin serves as a major data center and corporate office environment for one of the world's leading oil and gas companies. Morris, a Huitt-Zollars company, was tasked with adding a new level of excitement to the lobby space, originally built in 1983, and creating a building site that speaks to the neighborhood's new urban development. The addition of street side planters and brick pavers that reflect the downtown district's sidewalk motif creates a scaled down pedestrian walkway. A steel and glass canopy invites passersby into the dynamic interior. LED infused resin panels glow with a rolling light show, while bamboo panels soften the aesthetic of the building's original design. The demolished soffits and angled build-outs make way for an offset pattern of frameless recessed light fixtures in the sleek drop ceiling.
