Tóm tắt cuộc thi
1. The subject property is lovely, a desert setting, the highest lot on Sunrise mountain with a beautiful view of the Las Vegas strip. The back of Sunrise mountain finds Lake Mead. The gated community has only 9 homes, each different in design, all 5-9000’. Our lot is .68 acre, and has finished road on 3 sides, curving uphill with a 40’ grade difference front to back. We feel the grade difference on the home foot print will not exceed 20’, we think less.
2. What we are looking for in your submittal, is as follows;
- The best design that meets our vision, as shown in the folders.
- We hope you are able to keep working with us, we have about 10 other projects on the go, and need team
- Tasteful (look at the stone samples in the “treatment” folders. NO natural wood, unless it is fake, only because it gets destroyed in Nevada sun. We ARE open to the artificial wood though.
- Not overcomplicated building methods, kept simple.
3. Please use the images to spur IDEAS, not taken literally.
4. Regarding building shape, what is important; “Wrap around”, so both BACK side of the home wrap up each side of the pool, which hugs the pol and deck in towards the living are. One reason is to shield mountain winds.
5. In the wrap around, it does NOT have to all be home structure, some of it can be tall shade panels, which fit in architecturally, and can double a SOLAR panels too. The other reason s to “encapsulate the back, other than fend wind and place for solar, is to ensure all rear windows are shaded. If the Nevada sun hits the windows, it raises indoor temperatures by 20 degrees.
6. Architectural. We PREFER the modern / slab concept, (flat roof) concept, as it seems to be easier to build, but will be convinced to angle if needed. No weird useless arc, beams, weird things sticking out, just tasteful, clean, WARM, open. (no metals, chromes, stainless, retro, wrought iron, low ceilings, closed tiny spaces)
7. Target the main floor to be about 5-6000 square feet. Then a small second floor area, as you see fits your design, basement is UNDER the main floor, and used for parking. NO parking on the main level. Keep in mind, this home is on a GRADE, which drops 40’ lot line to lot line, but the home footprint only drops about 20’ or less. Use the grade to your advantage. The back area is the showcase area, with a clean open indoor-outdoor transition and pool. If the roof is flat, we can build in a really cool rooftop patio area, with a great view. It could be an office or lounging area.
8. The front doors and home face will face UPHILL, and the driveway is level with the doors. The front door should be TALL, with tall entrance area. Then, the driveway curves DOWNHILL to the NORTH side, accessing the garage at basement level.
9. On one of the floorplans, you will note added guest rooms to the north, which adds more underground space, could be parking.
10. On the east side of the pool, we intend a giant glass panel, so the sunlight can go THROUGH the water back into and illuminate the basement through the glass. We want a very interesting pool with falls, ect, the main feature being the INFINATE edge, on the WEST side, underlining the incredible city view.
11. The basement / parking is all open and white, no specific features, just open space. See the photo in interior features.
12. We are not picky about landscape, we can even defer it for now, but it should be cool.
13. Use the folders to get a feel for interior architecture, kitchen style, etc. We want ALL the main living areas including kitchen, to be open, connected, and facing the pool side. The tall open glass door/window encompassing the patio is important. Keep in mind though, Vegas does have a winter, and also has a crazy hot summer, so about 2/3 of the year, I suspect the back will be closed.
14. If you use Google earth, the address is 1790 Panoramic Visa in Las Vegas, feel free to look around.
