Royal Oaks Courtyard Villas
Location: Houston, TX
Builder: McVaugh Custom Homes
DA provided the conceptual design for an 80 unit luxury Single Family Detached and Townhome project located in the prestigious Royal Oak Community, just outside of Houston, Texas. The Site Plan concept was focused on creating a well designed attractive residential community that also achieved the necessary density to ensure project feasibility. The design objectives to achieve our goals included locating the recreation area at the entry to enhance the arrival into the community, providing a loop road for more efficient circulation through the project, plotting all long driveways and staggered driveways along the main loop road to vary the street scene, and providing product diversity with front-loaded units along the loop road, alley loaded in the project interior and townhomes along the edge adjacent to the perimeter road.
A major component of the site plan design is the central greenbelt that connects to all paseos within the interior of the site. This greenbelt will be an attractively landscaped location for trails and pedestrian nodes, with dog-walk supplies and shaded seating. All trails will lead to the community recreation area which will include exercise and meeting rooms, changing and restrooms, and a kitchen and bbq’s. In addition, this amenity will offer outdoor seating with a fireplace, making it a great place for gathering.
