Studio RED Architects recently completed the design for the new City of Houston Central Permitting Center. The center, which opened last, was designed by the Studio RED team to be functional, sustainable and economically feasible. Through the renovation of the 86-year old former rice warehouse, the city will see substantial savings over the cost of a new building. The building will also use many of the techniques featured in the Green Resource Center for homeowners, architects and builders such as recycled materials, raised-floor air conditioning and water harvesting.

This project serves as a model for ways to be responsible to the earth and on our own pocketbooks. FMG Design was engaged to provide environmental graphics design for the project.
