A childhood memory made to last.

The Meyerland House is a1962 mid-century modern home in Houston, built by the owner’s parents. The owner requested not only to reprogram the house to accommodate a retirement lifestyle and entertaining space, but also desired an area to display his expansive train model collection on a 30’x14’ custom-built train table. As the house is set in a designated floodplain, the construction of any additional foundation is prohibited leaving few options for a train model room. A second story addition above the garage, set back form the street to limit it’s presence, allows for such a space while preserving as much of the house as possible. Inside, the original open and airy public spaces were maintained and mimicked in the private spaces that were originally compact and irregular.
