Tower 5040

Houston, TX





Delivered one month earlier than expected, Tower 5040 is a new luxury 5-story residential over 3-story podium student living community situated directly across from the University of Houston, and within minutes of downtown. Strategically designed with a flavor of individuality, each area can be used collaboratively or alone to achieve more engaging and inviting spaces. Student housing shouldn’t serve as a solitary experience, but rather, space for students to interact, collaborate, live, study, and grow. Keeping spaces open and without physical barriers supports a sense of belonging, while functional furniture and accent pieces help to define a travel path. Additionally, adding contrast, layers, and texture also helps establish zones that brought the expansive double volume clubroom down to human scale.
