This weekend we took the American Institute of Architects Home Tour here in Houston, featuring 8 homes, in various near town neighborhoods. We were not allowed to take photos, so I've been looking online at the architects websites to help me remember the clean, modern, pretty spaces I toured.
The first house was the Bleyzer House by Stern and Bucek Architects. I don't know very much about local architecture firms, but they do commercial and residential and have an impressive portfolio. Here is their design rendering of the home, which features a green roof.
Here it is under construction last year.
Here are a few shots of the finished house. It has the most beautiful view of the bayou and a really impressive gym.
