Office Culture

Of course we sell services, but our most valuable resource is our people. Our people are well-qualified, creative, experienced, and internationally diversified. Our capacity to recruit great talent revolves around the appeal of our people, so the process is self-perpetuating.

We’ve created a large and diverse portfolio of buildings and places — work that speaks for itself. Collectively, it reflects a commitment to visionary design, a record of innovation and fresh ideas, and a demonstrated success with complex projects. Our people are known for well-researched, program-driven solutions aided by integrated multidisciplinary expertise and a strategic mindset. We bring global thinking to bear on projects that build communities. We are a firm with a proud heritage that has benefited through the years from entrepreneurial skills and proven success in cultivating new generations of leadership.

In 1973, Page established an office in Houston that began to establish a new design standard in that city. The office started to play an active role in the revitalization of downtown Houston in the early 1990s, beginning with the adaptive re-use of derelict but distinguished older buildings in the urban core. The Rice Hotel project, a landmark example of this effort, converted downtown Houston’s grandest old hotel originally built to serve as the Capitol of the Texas Republic (which had been empty for many years) into apartments, not only preserving an important historic landmark, but also bringing badly needed residents into downtown. Seven similar adaptive re-use projects followed over the next decade.

Civic activism and volunteerism also became a part of the firm’s leadership in Houston. When devastating record floods struck downtown and the Houston Medical Center in 2001, Page stepped in to help with mitigation of damages even before the waters subsided. Improving the standard of design in downtown and contributing projects that create a larger “sense of place” became a high priority. The mixed-use project for Christ Church Cathedral that integrated a center for the homeless amiably into a very complex bit of city fabric received all of the top design awards the community had to give. The 12-acre Discovery Green Park, for which Page designed all of the buildings, is making a similar long-term fundamental contribution to the character of downtown Houston. In 2005, the firm of Bricker + Cannady Architects was merged into the Houston office.
