Grace­wood, locat­ed in Houston’s Spring Branch, is expand­ing their facil­i­ties to pro­vide addi­tion­al assis­tance to sin­gle moth­ers and their chil­dren.

Since Grace­wood relies on dona­tions to sus­tain its growth and progress, they have trust­ed Masa Stu­dio Archi­tects’ Emi­ly Led­bet­ter and Mark Adkins with their projects. They have recent­ly begun the third build­ing in their expan­sion plan which includes a new Admin­is­tra­tive Build­ing and Com­mu­ni­ty Cen­ter. To ensure they’re hon­or­ing their bene­fac­tors’ and donors’ gen­eros­i­ty, Grace­wood is very pru­dent about how they spend the dona­tions and trust Masa Stu­dio Archi­tects to assist them.

As this build­ing will be hous­ing the new admin­is­tra­tive offices and com­mu­ni­ty cen­ter, ener­gy effi­cien­cy and long-term oper­a­tion and main­te­nance cost are of para­mount impor­tance.

With this in mind, Masa Stu­dio Archi­tec­ture chose the Bau­tex Block Wall Sys­tem for this expan­sion project as it pro­vides build­ing occu­pants with a health­i­er, safer and more com­fort­able work envi­ron­ment. Grace­wood also ben­e­fits from the low­er cost of oper­a­tion and main­te­nance, and long-term asset val­ue ensur­ing that they receive the great­est val­ue from their dona­tions.
