Modern design rich in historic influence.
Brava is set near the Buffalo Bayou and White Oak Bayou – the recognized birthplace of the city of Houston. Once the site of a small marketplace, it became part of the Houston Chronicle facility housing the newspaper’s parking garage.
In design, Brava honors this history in multiple ways. Components of the architecture and interiors move in an abstracted way, intersecting two straight lines against a curve to resemble the undulating Houston Bayous that so clearly define the city of Houston. Equally, the exterior glass and key interior walls are similar to how paper folds over rollers in the newspaper printing process: straight line – curve – straight line.
