Awty International School Student Center
The Awty International School Student Center dramatically reshapes the existing campus serving 1400 students in grades 2 – 12 in Houston, Texas.
Harvey converted lobby and tenant space of a historic downtown building into a modern urban food hall with ten mini kitchens and two bars. The food hall is comprised of multiple cooking and serving pods, each with its own architectural space and aesthetic. The conversion required extensive rework of the existing building MEP systems to support entirely new functionality. All of the MEP and low voltage system rework was completed in the middle of an active banking system, which could tolerate no disruption. The existing skin and structure were modified to support the new space. Coolers and food storage were created in support areas. Eclectic finishes were installed throughout to marry the existing historical architecture to the modern feel of the new food service storefronts.
