Atelier Jacquinet has been part to the ArtCrawl scene since 1999.
Note: Atelier is the French name for an art Studio or a couture Studio. Once called Studio Jacquinet in other locations throughout the world, Francis Jacquinet renamed his business Atelier being more specific to the fine art scene.

Furniture Co.: 1355
Bienville Furniture Company Building on Sterrett Street is Houston’s little
touch of European charm with that patina we used to only find in New Orleans.
In 1973 home to Reggie Bowman’s Plastics company… the folks who invented to
Beverage Buddy can holder that hooks onto your car window. Until around 1994
survived as Bienville Gallery. We assume it was eponymously named after the
Founder of the City of New Orleans Jean Baptiste Le MoyneSieu de Bienville.

Lofts : 711
James Bute Paint Co. was founded in 1869 by James Bute. In 1909 the newly
constructed facility at 711 William St. became the company’s Headquarters.
Houston’s longest continually running businesses, Bute Paint ceased operations
in 1991. The four story structure of reinforced concrete and heavy timber
framing is now the only major surviving commercial building of architect Olle
J. Lorehn (1864-1939)
City Iron Works: 1302 & 1310 Nance
City Iron Works dates back to 1906 and used to be a iron foundry warehouse
where metal was delivered by railroad and stored until it was sold to builders.
The metal used to build Houston came through here first. The warehouse has been
converted into lofts. Some artists live there, using their places as studios to
showcase their work. The other tenants are up-and-coming businesses.

9) Fifth Ward Hotel: 1206
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.
2003 Michael Morton, AIA of m ARCHITECTS reconfigured the interior for use as
an architecture studio and art gallery.

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.

building now known as "Francisco Studios" was originally a local
branch of the "Standard Sanitary Manufacturing Company" Circa 1930.
Standard Sanitary Manufacturing Company, founded in 1875, pioneered many of the
plumbing product improvements introduced in the early part of this century
including the one-piece toilet, built-in tubs, combination faucets (which mix
hot and cold water to deliver tempered water) and tarnish-proof,
corrosion-proof chrome finishes for brass fittings. By 1929, Standard had become
the world's largest producer of bathroom fixtures. That same year, the Standard
Sanitary Corporation merged with American Radiator Company to form
"American Standard" as it is known today.
