Modern Desert Courtyard – Las Vegas, Nevada
This modern residence was designed to capture the beautiful views in practically all directions – from the Las Vegas strip, to the mountains to the golf course below. The plan was developed to take full advantage of the 1.4 acre property, by incorporating a large entry courtyard on the north side of the home. Not only does the courtyard provide a unique entry experience to the front door of the home, it provides for several outdoor wind- sheltered areas for enjoyment. The exterior design balances openness, privacy and sun protection while also providing ample area for the owner’s art collection. All guest bedrooms have their own private outdoor patio. The backyard has all the amenities for enjoying time with family and friends – wrap-around pool, raised spa, separate lap pool, shaded seating and dining areas and a sunken conversation area with fire feature and glass wind screen. The primary suite comprises the entire second floor. The warm material palette harmonizes with the desert surroundings – blending steel, concrete, split face stone and wood ceilings.
