CultureMap: Houstonians toast a reimagined, ritzy River Oaks high-rise

Part of such vision for the reimagined River Oaks luxury high-rise in the upscale area of Houston’s inner loop was a thoughtfully-curated art program conceived by Weingarten Art Group principal Lea Weingarten. CultureMap editor Steven Devadanam covers an intimate soiree in which bold type locals celebrated the transformation of both interior and outdoor entertainment areas.

Steven writes:

Approximately 200 tastemakers gathered for a champagne celebration to toast The River Oaks’ complete transformation. Offering exclusive high-rise living in Houston’s most prestigious neighborhood, the landmark building has been completely reimagined to evoke the elegant, contemporary, and sophisticated lifestyle reflective of the neighborhood.

Giddy new residents, in-demand designers and real estate heavyweights sipped on a unique vintage Moet Imperial Reserve Cuvee courtesy of Moet & Chandon while taking in the splendor of their surroundings. With interiors and furnishings selected by internationally respected architect and interior designer, Lauren Rottet, the building has been designed to reflect a modernist point of view. Elegant and sophisticated, the lobby boasts a mid-century modern aesthetic. Hand-crafted contemporary furniture is complimented with vintage lounge chairs, coffee tables, and eclectic accessories. The interior scheme throughout is meant to showcase artwork. Lea Weingarten, principal of Weingarten Art Group, has curated a collection of pieces for the building that includes works by Paul Kremer, Stanley Whitney, Alex Katz, Gael Stack, and Liliana Porter.
