Originally built in 1910 for the Lone Star Bottling Company, the Warrant Building now provides office space to professional service firms in downtown Houston. In 2016, PDS was commissioned to design the renovation of the building. The building had been neglected for many years. With many closed off and tight spaces, a large element to the design was creating a large atrium entryway to open up the space. This made the cramped entryway into a tall bell tower shaped entry with a glass chandelier hanging in the middle of it. A custom stair railing was also created to bring the stairway up to code as well as to serve as an elegant art piece for the entry. The design also stripped away dated finishes, exposed the natural finishes, and gave a timeless color palette to the interior. On the property, tenants enjoy a private covered patio with fountain and lounging furniture; gated access parking; and museum-style displays through-out the building. For example, in the building lobby sits an antique floor safe weighing nearly 2,000 pounds that was manufactured by the Hall Safe & Lock Co before World War I. All the safe’s various compartments are open for viewing.
