Crawford Law is a successful, Houston-based firm owned by Clay Crawford. The firm is located in the former Henry Henke’s Fifth Ward Grocery building — now owned by Mr. Crawford. The property has been plagued by repeated flooding over the last half-decade, due to waters shed from the I-10 / US-59 Freeways and Buffalo Bayou.
Following the inconceivable damage caused by Hurricane Harvey, the Owner engaged Inventure to design the building to be resilient to future flooding, while maintaining the building’s historic character. Today the building is home to several individual law practices, including Mr. Crawford’s, and the interiors evoke a time-honored sophistication, in addition to being resilient to future floods.
