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.
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. With changing seasons one sees the varying sights and sounds of the landscape become a part of the interior giving it a beautiful and diverse backdrop.
A multi-level arrangement of the rooms ensures that each space flows into the next as the living area exudes a cheerful bright and contemporary vibe. Natural light permeates through to the lowest level of the house thanks to this spatial arrangement even as the stairwell with skylight above adds to this illuminated brilliance.
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.
Designed by ArchiBlox the natural slope of the lot coupled with a series of gum trees and lush green landscape defined the overall form of the new residence and its cantilevered living form.
Spread across three different levels a central courtyard that flows into the rear garden and sparkling recessed lighting put the final touches on a South African home where outdoor living takes precedence.
A treehouse is closely connected to the nature but that doesn’t mean it can’t carry a strong modern look that blends with the natural elements and creates a harmonious setting that highlights the best of both!
