CITYVIEW RIDGE RESIDENCE / HENDERSON, NV
Challenged to bring the outdoors inward, our design seeks to carve out distinct living spaces that remain visually consistent with the exterior scenery. Extensive glazing captures mountain views to the south and iconic city lights to the west. The front courtyard provides privacy while allowing natural light and immersive connection to the landscape. Site orientation, clerestories and generous overhangs provide day lighting while mitigating the extreme temperatures of the harsh desert sun. Light stone cladding and paving aid passive cooling to minimize energy consumption.
