SEARCH Homeless Services broke ground May 18, 2015 on its new headquarters designed by Studio RED Architects in east downtown Houston. The two-story, 27K sf office building will include two covered entries, a large lobby and waiting areas, offices, meeting rooms, cubicle areas and supporting facilities. Overlooking the first floor double-height waiting area is the second level with additional offices and cubicle spaces, complete with an outdoor deck adjacent to a large staff classroom, break area and restrooms.
SEARCH and Studio RED have a long-standing relationship. The architecture firm has adopted and supported SEARCH, their office’s midtown neighbor. Studio RED has volunteered as servers at meals, held community meetings, provided pro bono services and identified sites for the new administrative building and a second House of Tiny Treasures for the children of their clients.
Since 1989, SEARCH has helped thousands of men, women and children transition from unemployment and homelessness into lives of purpose and productivity, with safe, stable housing. This new headquarters will help further the organization’s mission to “provide hope, create opportunity and transform lives.” Learn more about SEARCH and donate to the mission here.
