Have you seen these townhomes in Museum Park? They’ve shown up on the Huffington Post and on KHOU Channel 11 News (and on Swamplot). They were featured in the Modern Architecture + Design Society Houston Modern Home Tour earlier this year. They’ve been dubbed the Light Box Houses, because . . . well, they glow!
Both artificial and natural light have been carefully attended to in the design of the 3 townhomes in Art Colony’s Phase Two. Mounted on the main facade of the homes is a stainless-steel-and-aluminum LED light screen, which illuminates the entire frontage at night — and by day provides privacy and shade for second-story street-facing balconies. Glowing lights are also inset in the driveways in each home; the corner property (at 5313 Chenevert St.) features a street-level video-art projection room.
Within the homes, balconies and patios bring natural light further into the interior. In the master bathrooms, the floor-to-ceiling windows of the integrated shower-baths look out to a private, open-air spa deck (with a stainless-steel Japanese soaking tub). Full-width roof decks with clear skyline views sit at the top level of each townhome.
Only 2 of the 3 properties in this phase are still available. The corner property, at 5313 Chenevert St., is 2,528 sq. ft.; 1805 Prospect St. measures 2,889 sq. ft. Both homes have 3 bedrooms and 3-and-a-half baths. The homes are within walking distance of Hermann Park, Rice University, and many of the city’s finest museums.
