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.
This Colorado residence by Tomecek Studio Architecture is actually a hybrid container house, incorporating two shipping containers on either side of a more traditional structure. The entire 1,500-square-foot Nederland House makes the most of its Rocky Mountain views, while the containers are where you’ll find the bedrooms, bath, office, laundry room and kitchen. Though it’s not part of the containers, the upstairs of the center structure features a platform bed on sliding tracks — giving an entirely new meaning to sleeping under the stars.
The biggest problems to be solved in this kitchen makeover? Not enough storage or useable space. For a lighter, more open feel, designers framed the range with two windows repurposed from another part of the house. Ceiling-high cabinets were given glass doors, more shelving with an airy look!
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 transitional kitchen is part of a renovated 1960s home. It was moved to the back of the house and opened up with the removal of several walls. It features an oversize island and black floor-to-ceiling Ikea cabinets with Caesarstone countertops and high-end brass hardware. Two globe pendant lights provide illumination for the space.
The Graham residence after the kitchen renovation by licensed contractor Chip Wade. As part of the renovation, Chip Wade added a garage door to allow for indoor and outdoor entertaining and tons of natural light. His design also included a custom concrete table weighing over two thousand pounds. The table also housed the cooktop and sink without exposing the working parts under the table, making for a clean look. With the addition of a garage door, a custom table and all new appliances, the kitchen area is now perfect for entertaining large groups, as seen on HGTV's Elbow Room.
Period details abound in this two-story, wood-paneled library, part of a 3.5-acre Mediterranean-style estate located in the heart of Beverly Hills. Known as The Beverly House, the property was designed by Gordon Kaufmann and built in 1927. In this library, the design of the sculpted, cathedral-height ceiling mirrors the pattern of the custom carpet underfoot. Carved panels lend architectural detail and visual interest to every inch of the massive space, while warm wood tones, a crackling fireplace and accent lighting lend coziness and warmth.
This formal garden with a two-story pavilion for entertaining is part of an extensive building and landscaping project by Cruickshank Remodeling. The homeowners had recently purchased the adjacent property which contained a mid century ranch house. After demolishing the structure, the yard was then graded and reconfigured into an upper and lower lawn and garden areas, taking advantage of the elevation change in the lot. The design goal was the creation of various entertainment spaces that can be viewed in our before and after visual tour.
The Solis Two Porsche Drive hotel adjacent to the Porsche Experience Center, has become the go-to destination for visitors checking out the driving experience at Porsche. Part of the booming city rising in the shadow of the airport, the "aerotropolis" of Hapeville next to Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport—the world's busiest passenger airport—is just 20 minutes from downtown Atlanta and has a lot to recommend it for both car-crazy adults and their child companions. The 8-story hotel itself overlooks—at key vantage points—the Porsche Experience Center racetrack. The rooftop Overdrive Lounge offers the best public view by far of both Porsche and the airport and there are also 9 track-view suites. The rooms themselves are insulated with triple-pane windows from flight noise. For transportation-obsessed kids, this is a once-in-a-lifetime convergence of planes, trains (train tracks pass right in front of the hotel) and automobiles all viewable in close proximity to the property (there's even a Delta Flight Museum close-by for flight fans). For quick and easy access to downtown Atlanta, I-75 is in close proximity to Solis. You can sit on the outside patio of the in-house restaurant Apron and watch planes come in for landings and eavesdrop on visiting German Porsche execs relaxing after a day of work at Porsche's North American headquarters. To continue the Porsche tie-in, two Porsche Cayennes offer VIP transportation to the airport and auto artwork abounds: there are car murals in the lobby and car motif art in the 214 guest rooms. There is even an in-house Porsche themed gift shop to take home a souvenir.
