Lion Square Shopping Center

STOA International Architects, Inc. / Lion Square Shopping Center

Lion Square Shopping Center

STOA Architects was hired by Whitestone REIT to design a new exterior façade and image for an existing 1980 shopping center. Facing Bellaire Boulevard only reiterated its importance as it created a focal point/landmark in the heart of Chinatown.

Earlier renovations added porch elements to the center. The idea of adding a tower element to unite both porches into one single focal point was the approach taken by the design team. Also, parapet and column modifications developed to create smaller but distinct areas of interest along the whole façade of the center.
