Tucked into a quiet neighborhood along the Memorial Drive corridor, this modern residence boldly asserts itself yet nestles comfortably between the pines that surround the property.  This residence is designed as an energy efficient sustainable home that is oriented on the property to maximize natural light from the south and north but minimize direct sun from the east and west exposures.  The home features 100% LED lighting and utilizes a lighting control system and mechanical thermostat control systems that are capable of being remotely accessed and controlled by the owners via their smart phones and other internet interfaces.  The landscaping utilizes many native plants, trees and grasses that require very low maintenance and are suited well for the climate zone that Houston belongs.
