Ascaya is an interesting new dream development that’s still under construction for the most part. This project developed by SB Architects is meant to serve as an exclusive residential development comprised on several individual structures. The estate will eventually include several residences, each featuring its own take on contemporary architecture, with different types of features and luxury amenities.
There’s already a completed residence with several others to come later this year. The estate is located in Henderson, Nevada. In total there will be five residences, all custom designed to fit seamlessly into the landscape and to connect to the desert in a natural and beautiful manner.
All the residences are designed to communicate with their surroundings and to feature a very fluid indoor-outdoor transition and relationship between spaces. This seamless connection is ensured in various different ways. The social areas are organized in an open floor plan on the ground floor, with large sliding glass doors and views of the desert and the city in the distance.
The architects made sure to include large gathering spaces and to give the residences this resort-like feel, with fluid indoor-outdoor transitions and flexible layouts and spaces. They used natural materials and textures throughout as well as a chromatic palette based on earthy colors.
Concrete, wood and glass are beautifully used throughout the spaces, complementing each other and maintaining the simplicity of the interior design and decor so the focus can be on the expansive views and the open and airy ambiance. Clerestory windows give the impression of a floating roof and let natural light into the spaces.
The residences embrace their surroundings and they’re open to a variety of outdoor areas such as the covered outdoor dining area, the sunken fire pit, the outdoor spa and pool and even a covered roof deck.
