Las Vegas, Nevada, USA
The curvilinear sandstone walls of the Headquarters’ main entry courtyard replicate the experience of passing through desert canyons, such as those at nearby Red Rock Canyon.
These complex walls and covered pedestrian arcades shade visitors from the harsh desert sun, while the xeriscaping showcases indigenous plants. The courtyard features a central water fountain that cascades over sandstone rocks, emphasizing the importance of this natural resource. The arid region and native landscape inspired our design. The headquarters received four awards, including two AIA Honor Awards from regional chapters.
