Greater Texas Foundation Headquarters

Bryan, TX United States

Project Description

The Greater Texas Foundation was cognizant of the need to develop a headquarters that embodied the core values of their organization. The Foundation owned an early 1900s lumber warehouse on a lush lot with views of nature but needed a new facility that offered different functionality. Page Principal Wendy Dunnam Tita partnered with Furman + Keil Architects and, as the design team, they successfully identified an opportunity to refurbish and reuse wood from the original structure, meeting the client's workplace objectives and upholding their principles.

Key to this effort were the strategic planning and programming sessions with the Board members, Building Committee and staff that the project team led prior to beginning design. The resulting facility is a LEED Gold certified building that provides a home for monthly board meetings, a healthy, collaborative work environment for staff and a place to host work sessions with partner organizations.
