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.
This modern Las Vegas home is split into two parts: the main house and the guest house. With the pool in front of it, the main house plays host to the living room and modern master suite, while the guest house contains the guest rooms and the home theater. These two parts of this home are separated by an elevated courtyard that serves as an outdoor living room for both portions of the home and overlooks the property, as well as the Las Vegas Valley and Las Vegas strip.
With a smooth circle driveway and sleek landscape lighting, the exterior of this Las Vegas Valley home is cool and modern. Layers of succulents and cacti decorate the yard for natural greenery with minimal maintenance.
The pool house is alongside Bear’s Best golf course at the base of a mountain with views to the Las Vegas Strip. The site is split by a dramatic level change by a berm from the front to back of the site. The design fits into the berm, enabling a lower level that benefits from natural daylighting. The views culminate in a rooftop deck which offers unrestricted views to the mountains, course and valley below.
