Nestled within historic Spotts Park, The Houston Endowment Center opened its award-winning new headquarters building in October. Designed by the renowned Kevin Daly Architects and firm Productura out of Mexico City, the building and grounds reflect modern design, and are flanked by Buffalo Bayou which winds its way on the back side of the property. The downtown Houston skyline can also be viewed from the site. The project was led by general contractor Bellows Construction, with landscape architecture services provided by TLS Landscape Architecture.
The Endowment was founded in 1937 by Jesse H. Mary Gibbs Jones. It supports dozens of local public, private and non-profit organizations in the Greater Houston area, contributing to causes such as public education, social services, natural disaster recovery efforts and more.
Our team at B&D Landscape Contractors is honored to have collaborated on this groundbreaking project. Our scope of work entailed a full landscape package, including all drainage and irrigation efforts on the 1.5 acre property. Gabion Walls adorn the property; each stone was carefully laid by hand within metal retaining structures. A variety of plant life was added to bring visual interest and color to the grounds. Additionally, second-floor planters were installed to accent several terraces that look over Spotts Park.
