Last week we had the pleasure of attending a planner open house at an unusual venue called The Plant at Kyle.
“An award-winning architectural landmark, the building was designed by Lake|Flato Architects as a private residence using steel recycled from the Alamo Cement Plant. The house was completed in 1989.” This secluded property can host small intimate events or larger receptions up to 300 guests by adding tents in the fields around the stunning home.

The Plant at Kyle is housed on 17 acres of private land and is nestled away in the Texas Hill Country. According to the property managers, Martha and Jamie, you might even see a fox, armadillo, or wild turkey roaming nearby while lounging by the pool, sitting on the screened in porch, or playing games on the lawn.
We had the privilege of providing rental decor for their two oak farm tables and chose colors to bring out both the natural rustic beauty of the landscape, as well as the industrial feel of the architecture. The Plant at Kyle was built with sustainability in mind and was “green before it was cool.”
We loved the unique design of the screened in two story porch, with stairs leading up to a balcony and bedroom, where you could see out over the patio. Downstairs, there is an indoor living room and fully equipped Kitchen. They even have their own bistro lighting hung in the screened in porch, to light up the night and provide the perfect ambiance for any reception.
If you’re planning a small to medium wedding or are looking for a unique and sustainable venue to host your event, look no further. The space inspires creativity and we can’t wait to help with your events at the Plant at Kyle!
