Museum of Fine Arts, Houston Center for Conservation

Market:

Cultural/Community

Anchoring the eastern perimeter of the MFAH campus is the 39,000-sf Sarah Campbell Blaffer Foundation Center for Conservation. Constructed on top of the Bellows-built Fannin Service Center parking garage, the glass rooftop structure houses 23,796 sf of conservation studio and support space on the second floor with dedicated studios for painting, textile, sculpture, and decorative arts, as well as space for storage, framing, imaging, and other support activities. The remaining 14,781 sf are dedicated to mechanical space on the first floor. The center brings the conservation team together under one roof and near the Museum for the first time, allowing them to work more closely with their curator colleagues and carry out ongoing research.
