fifthward hotel

3)       Fifth Ward Hotel: 1206 Nance

The former Fifth Ward Hotel building at 1206 Nance Street is a near-miraculous survivor of Victorian commercial architecture in Houston. Built in 1883 as a hotel, it was three stories tall with load bearing masonry walls of locally produced brick and cast iron columns supporting timber framed floors. By 1915 the hotel had closed and the building saw a succession uses. During the 1950s the two upper floors were removed because the masonry walls were near the point of collapse and the remainder of the historic building was concealed behind sheet metal siding. After a disastrous electrical fire in 1993 the last owner abandoned it. The structure was sensitively rehabilitated in 2002 by Rice Construction Company in consultation with historic preservationist Anna Mod.

In 2003 Michael Morton, AIA of m ARCHITECTS reconfigured the interior for use as an architecture studio and art gallery.

This Year m Architects will feature artist Sara Moons

Sara Moons is an abstract expressionist artist and an art educator, living in Montgomery, Texas. She lives and works from her lakefront home studio, lovingly dubbed Whimsy Lake, with her husband and three children. Sara works with a variety of mediums, primarily in acrylic and oil pastel. She is inspired by the spontaneity of children, the wonder of nature, and the power of music.

david adickes 9)       David Adickes Sculpture Studio: 2401 Nance

From KUHT in Houston "To be president, they say you need a big head. Inspired after a visit to Mount Rushmore, Houston artist David Adickes decided that the only way to appreciate the details of the facial features of those monumental carvings up close was to create his own. He sculpted 43 enormous busts – one of each American president – and they are all on view outside his studio in Texas."

Explore Broad & High for fun Video.

David Adickes will have his Sculpture Studio open - visitors can get face-to-face with his giant presidential heads! Great photo ops

The Elder Street Artist Lofts are located at the historic Jefferson Davis Hospital. Renovation on the building was completed in 2005 and is currently home and studio to many of Houston’s fine artists, musicians, and performers. The Elder Street Artist Lofts house 34 studio/dwelling units with original terrazzo floors, high ceilings, and large windows offering artist a beautifully unique space to focus on creating new work within an arts community setting with the best rooftop view of the downtown Houston skyline.

Completed in 1924, the Jefferson Davis Hospital is a handsome red brick structure in the Classical Revival style. Houston's rapid growth soon rendered it inadequate, however, and in 1938 a new hospital replaced it. Over the years, the building housed a variety of tenants, but it had stood vacant for 20 years before Artspace and Avenue CDC provided services leading to the Elder Street Artist Lofts.
