Health & wellness
To register for the award, the project’s architect HKS Inc. and AD100 interior designer Emily Summers Design Associates, have made efforts on designing the property to become the healthiest high-rise in Texas and to offer the highest levels of both health and wellness upon completion in 2020.
Among the technologies implemented at the HALL Arts Residences are:
- the minimization of indoor air pollutants using multilevel filtration
- the elimination of building materials containing VOCs
- thick demising walls that mitigate noise transfer between and within homes
- a sound-reducing membrane installed in floors
- healthy food options
- on-site fitness facilities
- light-optimal interior design palettes created by Emily Summers to maximize comfort
WELL is a performance-based system for measuring, certifying and monitoring features of the built environment that impact human health and wellness administered by International WELL Building Institute. Upon completion in 2020, HALL Arts Residencies will be subjected to rigorous testing and a final evaluation by Green Business Certification Inc., the third-party certification body for WELL.
“A focus on health and wellness has become a key feature of today’s luxury residential developments,” said Craig Hall, chairman of HALL Group & developer of HALL Arts Residences. “It was important to us to take this a step further at HALL Arts Residences by pursuing WELL Certification and designing the most innovative, health-driven environment for our homeowners. They will be able to take comfort in knowing that their home was designed with their wellbeing as a top priority.”
“The WELL Building Standard is a key differentiator in today’s luxury residential market as it places a new premium on environments that allows for one to breathe better, sleep better and live better,” added Eddie Abeyta, HKS principal architect.
