Angled off the back of the house to make optimum use of the sloped lot, this crisp white deck and patio with fire pit create a two-tier hub for outdoor living. The white hue blends with the home's rear facade so as not to stop the eye.
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.
On the exterior, the house's split level design helps visually tie it to its neighbors. The lowest point of one roof meets the neighboring home's roof line. Building over the four car garage and crawl space, the owners maximize storage and workshop space.
Located in N.Y., this modern and minimalistic home was built as the replacement for a property that was damaged by Superstorm Sandy. The house is comprised of a series of gabled structures split apart by an interior garden.
With a gated entry and cobblestone drive, this 10,000-square-foot custom home is loaded with luxuries. Two parking pads provide space for guests, while a four-car garage is split between two wings of the house. Stone accents on the facade and a terra cotta tile roof are among the home's Mediterranean touches.
To make the terrace level bath feel less like an 80s afterthought, Georgia designer Beth Johnson split the cavernous space into two smaller bathrooms for guests to use at the lake house. Because it is a second home for the family, she employed cost-saving steps, like installing ceramic tile that looks like Carrera marble, that didn’t sacrifice style.The result is a new transitional style that is more in line with today.
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.
The owners of this redesigned 1960s split level home wanted the garage apartment to have as much character as the interior of the main house, so they hired designers to create a rustic, craftsman oasis with modern touches. The walls and ceilings are swathed in wood that reflect the woods that surround the home, while the bed is nestled into the walls of the small space. Gray French doors separate the cozy sleeping quarters from the rest of the house.
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.
