Method Architecture, the Houston-based firm behind the design of several local breweries, mixed-use projects and commercial real estate, continues its growth with the acquisition of David Boggess Architects.

David Boggess, a commercial architecture firm in Houston, is known for projects such as the redevelopment of the Hughes Tool site in Houston’s East End and the Weatherford International operations and training center in San Antonio. The acquisition is expected to bolster Method’s growing portfolio of projects across Texas.

Method, which recently moved its offices to the new East River development in Midway, has carved out a niche with more than 25 brewery and distillery designs, including Buffalo Bayou Brewing Co., Karbach Brewing Co., 8th Wonder Brewery and Yellow Rose Distillery . Popular company designs include food halls such as Bravery Chef Hall in Midtown and Railway Heights Market north of Washington Corridor. She has also designed adaptive reuse projects such as the East End Maker’s Hub industrial incubator, the MKT retail project at The Heights (in collaboration with Michael Hsu Architects), and office interiors at the Common Desk’s East End and Post Oak locations.
Method designed her new 8,612-square-foot office with a funky modern look that includes a colorful mural by local artist David Maldonado. The office provides Method staff with views of the downtown skyline and, at the moment, construction work underway on the 150-acre mixed-use development.

David Boggess Architects’ small team of two will move into the East River office in September from 3701 Kirby Drive. Boggess, himself, who is preparing to retire, will join Method’s Houston team to help with the transition and will remain a member of Method’s new principal advisory board.

Started in Houston in 2016, Method has grown over the years in part through acquisitions, including Architecture Plus in Austin, Primal Architecture in Dallas, and GSC Architects in Austin and San Antonio. The company has more than 70 employees in offices in Houston, San Antonio, Austin and Dallas. Jake Donaldson, managing director of Method, said the company still had an interest in acquiring more companies if the opportunity presented itself.
