BRAVE / Architecture worked with New York Architect Sayigh+Duman to provide Design Within Reach with one of their largest and most prominent stores in Texas. Located in Houston’s Highland Village, the 10,000 SF design takes advantage of the double-height space. A private sales room highlights the center of the layout, opening the rest of the store for display and vignettes of different styles. The two-story windows that wrap the entrance were cleared of shades and faux-walls to maximize visibility into the showroom, allowing natural light during the day while letting the store’s unique chandeliers and pendant light fixture cloud illuminate the storefront at night. Sayigh+Duman was the Design Architect while BRAVE / Architecture acted as the Architect of Record in a successful collaboration with an expedited seven-week construction period.
