h+uo architects has worked on countless projects over the years that have stuck out in their minds, all for different reasons, and for the most part, each as memorable as the others.
Though, when being asked what our favorite project was, one project in particular came to the minds of two of the partners: The Crossings, now Travaasa Experiential Resort.
Partner Randall Owen said It was his most memorable project because he was on the site for over a year-and-a-half in his own job trailer observing construction and orchestrating the construction of the 15 building campus using two general contractors.
“This was an architect’s dream to get to call 200 plus acres of Texas Hill Country on the edge of the Balcones Canyonlands Preserve my office, while watching one of my projects get built. I was so spoiled, not because I had in my trailer A/C, a mini-fridge, and a computer with internet access, but because I felt like a Master Builder, like an architect from many centuries ago, out in the natural environment, watching their man-made vision become a reality. We created a village up on that hill. I look forward to my next visit.”
