Las Vegas Home at the Base of the Redrock Mountains
This modern home lies at the foothills of the Redrock Mountains in a master planned community in southwest Las Vegas. The design departs from the traditional U-shaped desert courtyard home by dividing the home into two components linked through an elevated courtyard. The design works with the existing contours of the house to screen the view of the Las Vegas valley upon entry to the property, drawing guests across a bridge over the site to the elevated courtyard which serves as the exterior living room for the home, where the view to the strip is exposed. This space splits the home into two parts, creating a main house, with a living room and master suite, and a guest house,with a family theatre and guest bedrooms.
