Cypresswood EstatesBy Kenneth J. Puncerelli, CEO LAI Design Group
Cypresswood Estates is Houston’s premier affordable housing geared toward Active Adult segment of the seniors population. The community and architecture uses the highest possible LEED Platinum building standards.
It is the creative vision of seasoned designers, award winning architects, top quality builders and the vision of the Harris County Housing Authority. The concept of a green, sustainable community sets a new standard of excellence and environmentally friendly construction techniques and materials make sustainable life much easier. The landscape architecture is as much an important component as the architecture because everything in sight supports or enhances the lifestyle of seniors while reducing environmental impact.
As you review Cypresswood Estates you will note that the resort like pool and clubhouse make a great place to live while protecting the planet and improving the quality of life. The community is centered around a primary green space amenity. This area is fortified with a playground, artificial turf, a roof drain cistern system used for drip irrigation, as well as a zero depth exotic pool and palm trees for added effect. The club house functions as an indoor community hub complete with leasing office, kitchen and dining room for resident parties, a fitness suite, and beauty salon.
