Magnolia | May Building — Fort Worth, Texas


Located in a key urban renewal area in Fort Worth’s historic Near Southside, the Magnolia | May renovation was designed to be both cost effective and flexible for a variety of potential tenants. The project consists of three buildings on a single city block. Our design team updated the three façades with minimal demolition or changes to the existing façades by adding simple materials to create a modern look. Unifying elements give the three buildings a cohesive presentation. A large shared outdoor patio in the back gives purpose to several of the existing trees, which were preserved and integrated into the courtyard.

Originally the home of residential, restaurant and office space, the new program adds a courtyard for outdoor dining. Site work, parking and code compliance solutions were also part of the project.
