Studio RED Architects continues to play a pivotal role in Houston’s growing master-planned communities market. With its hand in four of the area’s newest communities, Studio RED has been staying busy designing the communities’ respective recreation and amenity centers, giving residents a place to unwind, socialize, workout and more.
Newland Communities’ Elyson master-planned community in Katy is home to the Rorick House, designed by Studio RED. This 9,000-square-foot recreational amenity and new home information center features a clubhouse with fitness center, meeting room, game room and an event lawn. It also features playgrounds, as well as a pool with lap lanes, sunbathing shelves and a beach entry. Its design draws inspiration from prairie style architecture, while incorporating traditional Texas elements.
Johnson Development Corp. recently held a grand opening for its master-planned community in Fulshear. The Shed, Jordan Ranch’s 6,000-square-foot recreation center, was designed by Studio RED and will feature a pool, lazy river, splash pad, dog park, clubhouse and cardio room, which can transform into a banquet hall as needed. The activity center includes a breezeway, which allows for cross ventilation, as well as the ability to expand activities past the interior into the outside area.
Studio RED also designed this master-planned community’s recreational center, The Promenade. The 9,000-square-foot community center is designed to host various community events and activities. It is comprised of a 1,120-square-foot health and wellness activity room and massage area and a 1,790-square-foot cardio and circuit training room. It also features a 2,210-square-foot multi-purpose room for special events. The site will also include a public pool, event lawn, outdoor amphitheater, splash pad and playground.
First Colony Community Association’s master-planned community, Creekshire, is getting a makeover. Studio RED has redesigned the community’s 1,000-square-foot pool building, which will get a complete demolition and redesign. The new building will be home to pool equipment rooms, restrooms and storage for the pool complex.
