The architecture is breathtaking. Oddly enough the interior design choices are not as stunning, but that could be the owners picks not the architects. My fav right has to be the laundry room! One of those structures(architects) that took the view and took full advantage of all it's glory.

Thanks for posting Laura, a thrill to see.

the architect and interior designer are more than likely not the same persons / teams, and also the interior decorators. BTW: you may not like the look of the 'bedsacks', but they are probably essential for comfort in NV winters.

personally, I think the house and landscaping have some stunning aspects, but the house is a chaotic conglomeration of disassociated geometries, and lacks a cohesive flow. either the designer suffers multiple personality disorder, or this is the product of a fresh graduate trying to throw all of their ideas into a single project.

also, on a more pragmatic level, the love affair with glass in every room and hard furnishing is less than ideal along with an ocean of grout this large house would need constant cleaning to stay looking good.
