Las Vegas Residence:
The Mojave landscape maintains an inherent beauty of textures, stratifications, and materials, as well as a protected oasis of color brought to life under the play of shadow patterns of the harsh sun. These environmental realities can be used as inspiration for the design to create a sense of place and character regionalism.
This project has been developed around a simple expression of forms and materials. Separated into functions, the forms create opportunities for protected courtyards, cross circulation within all the spaces and the penetration of indirect natural light. Glamour and glitz have been substituted with purpose.
