Fluids Management Headquarters


Brookshire, Texas

A new headquarters for a growing drilling-mud services company will occupy an 18 acre site west of Houston in Waller County. Development of the property and building program will produce a sustainable environment for the 15 current employees, and facilitate the company's desire for managed growth. Offices occupy a U-shaped building surrounding an open-ended private courtyard, while the lab and other communal spaces are located in a simple barn-like form. Entry and Reception occur between the two, in a tall open space allowing views through to the revitalized prairie beyond. Smaller special function buildings, including a wellness center, are scattered along a boardwalk, promoting full enjoyment of the outdoors as part of the workday experience.
