Located in the heart of downtown Houston, Main and Co is a collection of renovated and reimagined historic buildings. Originally built in the early 1900’s, they have housed concepts from dry good purveyors to downtown guesthouses to bbq restaurants, they now offer modern tech offices, art and nightlife. The historic renovations feature exposed brick walls, original wooden beams and an abundance of natural light. Partially crumbled pastel plastered walls were preserved and corresponding paint colors were custom-matched to connect the new construction with the existing architecture. New hardwood floors were installed with a lighter finish to brighten the spaces and the restrooms were created with classic black and white subway tiles, period-appropriate light fixtures. and custom-designed marble sinks with a deco flair. The original terrazzo wainscot and flooring in the lobby was restored, period-appropriate light fixtures were added and a textured graphic wallpaper applied to provide an ethereal backdrop.
