The new Pinkberry shop boasts a fresh, sleek exterior that matches the vitality of the surrounding area. On the choice for the Highland Village location, Meredith Emory, franchisee of Pinkberry, says “We were very patient for the right real estate.”
The primary goal of Studio RED Architects was to transform the existing mission style building to mirror the contemporary personality of Highland Village. Trung Doan, partner at Studio RED Architects, elaborates, “We transformed a building that was slowly disappearing amongst the modern character of River Oaks into a fresh, current point of view for Pinkberry.”
Studio RED Architects implemented the trademark Pinkberry store concept design for the new location. The Houston-based architecture firm designed the 1,000 s.f. Pinkberry location to include the trademark green trellis on the façade of the building and incorporated as much glass as possible into the design. The challenge was to upgrade the existing exterior building to accommodate two tenants, one being Pinkberry.
Pinkberry has experienced tremendous growth over the past 8 years. The company first opened in West Hollywood in 2005 and has now grown to over 170 stores throughout North America, South America, Europe, The Middle East and Asia. The new Pinkberry yogurt shop in Highland Village is the 3rd Pinkberry location in Houston, following the Clear Lake/Webster and The Woodlands locations.
Studio RED Architects has extensive experience in designing retail spaces including Brennan’s Restaurant, Zig’s, Memorial City Mall, Blue Martini, The Shops at Houston Center, and other works around the city.
