Houston's First Baptist Church Downtown

Houston's First Baptist Church Downtown Campus
Architect: Kirksey

Though the new Downtown campus for Houston’s First Baptist Church started as an outdated union hall, the designers had a mission to transform the eyesore into a vibrant church. The client wanted this campus to stand out visually from its urban surroundings, describing it early in the design process as ‘a place of light in the city’.

On the Boards: M*K*T

M*K*T mixed-use development, Houston, Texas
Architect: Michael Hsu Office of Architecture & Method Architects 
Landscape Architect: SWA

G2LD is pleased to be working on the innovative new retail and office development of M*K*T, in the Greater Heights area of Houston, along with Radom Capital and the design team of Michael Hsu Office of Architecture, SWA, and Method Architecture. The 12-acre development takes a creative approach to the adaptive reuse of 200,000 sq. ft of unremarkable 1970s warehouses, turning them into a vibrant destination for shopping, dining, fitness and office space.

Lighting Bloopers
It’s a hazard of the job - we can’t go anywhere without analyzing the lighting. We’ve seen it all - the good the bad, the ugly, and the so-bad-it’s-hilarious. So we’ve devised this column to share some of the funniest lighting mishaps.

We get it--knowing how to specify and install landscape lighting can be tricky. It's probably the area in which we find the most bloopers.
But this job may have hit a new low in terms of installation effort with its extension cord and bare lamps splayed on the ground. Also wondering: what are they intending to light in this dirt bed?

If you come across a spectacular (or just embarrassing) lighting blooper,  please send it to us at
We're always looking for a good laugh...
