A long 150 foot curtainwall surrounds the house and gives it its distinct façade while large glass walls open the living area towards the view outside.

A black treehouse sets itself apart with a stunningly elegant exterior that feels sophisticated and contemporary a reflection of the latest dark decor trends.

There is something uniquely captivating about the dry desert landscape that makes it a beautiful backdrop for a sleek contemporary home. Set in the arid backdrop of Nevada and just a dozen miles away from the bright lights of Las Vegas is a luxury residential development in the foothills of McCullough Range.
It is SB Architects that built the first lavish private home of the budding development that is expected to see six more luxury residences in the next year or so. The 7200-sqaure-foot desert estate is all about an open energy-savvy and comfortable living environment where the scenery becomes a part of the overall narrative.
A set of moving panels and a spacious shelf become the focal point of the family room with the panels sliding in and out of place to hide TV storage spaces and other compartments when not in use. A comfy daybed in green next to the window provides even more storage space with a slim work desk next to it becoming the study zone.
But that is not the only space that was altered to meet the growing demands of an urban family. The more rigid kitchen of the house with a counterproductive U-shaped kitchen layout was replaced by a new kitchen where a smart worktop and ergonomic island combine modern minimalism with industrial overtones.
A simple clean color scheme relying on white ensures that the interior is as contemporary and understated as possible. Concrete overhangs add to the seemingly pavilion style of the home where traditional boundaries are done away with.
