Nestled into the ever-changing skyline of Memorial City on Bunker Hill sits a unique concept in a collaborative and sustainable office of the future. The two-story, 14,700sf structure is hard to miss with its organic warm beauty, beckoning passersby to question what is that? Well, it is home to MetroNational, owner, manager and developer of Memorial City. The office oversees development activities including master planning, architecture, construction and interior design. Green elements include a geothermal cooling and heating system, daylight harvesting lights that automatically adjust in response to changing levels of natural light. The green roof is complete with solar panels, rainwater collection, wind turbine and a rooftop garden/urban oasis featuring native Texas plants. Wood used for interior flooring was reclaimed from the Old Cotton Concentration Company warehouse in Galveston. The Treehouse is a symbol of MetroNational’s dedication to quality design and place making and showcases their dedication to sustainable and green building practices. 963 Bunker Hill | Houston, 77024
