Project Narrative

This project showcases an array of tilt-up concrete warehouses thoughtfully designed to accommodate small office components. As the appointed architect for the entire complex, we took on the responsibility of crafting a visionary design for the property. Drawing inspiration from the rich textures and colors of the local surroundings, the architectural design beautifully incorporates desert influences, emphasizing texture, contrast, and bursts of saturated color. The primary facades boast a striking vertical banding, lending a distinctive and remarkably refined touch to this type of project. To enhance the interiors with natural light, our team ingeniously integrated randomized windows into the main warehouse spaces. Adding a touch of uniqueness to each building, a specific color designation was bestowed upon each, culminating in the creation of a captivating 'mosaic' of colors across the masterplan. The result is a dynamic and visually stunning industrial complex that harmoniously connects with its environment while exuding a sense of innovation and creativity. By adding these simple, yet unique design elements, our client was able to yield a higher return on lease rates and achieve sold out status sooner than expected. The project stands out among industrial building typology within the Las Vegas valley.

Sustainable Design & Materials

The drivers for this project are utility & efficiency, flexibility, and aesthetic appeal & cost. We used tilt-up construction methods and facade treatments that included sustainable materials, while creating an individual identity for each building through the use of color. For energy efficiency we used the maximum percentage of skylights allowed by the energy code - resulting a space that is naturally well lit, and also used insulated, low-e glazing as part of the envelope. Lighting throughout was sourced using sustainable products, incorporating in-ground LED up-lights and exterior linear LED's. By using sustainably sourced products from the inception of the design process, we were able to provide the client with an efficient project across their campus. Due to water conservation efforts across the Las Vegas valley, we kept the landscape native to the desert landscape. This palette consisted of native plants such as Deer Grass, Horsetail, San Pedro Cactus, Palo Verde, and Swan Olive - which provide a regional influence on the beauty and nature of the desert. Our planting theme was rooted on landscapes that aligned to both the design and surrounding context. These plants seamlessly blend throughout the complex while creating an easily managed and sustainable aesthetic.
