Article source: assemblageSTUDIO

Nevada is a state of two worlds, one of glitz and glamour on the Las Vegas Strip which seeks to transplant imagery from around the globe to mesmerize the minds of 40 million tourists. While the latter develops its architecture from local materials, whose vernacular represents function over form.

A new generation has energized our downtown. A communal atmosphere of open collaboration and interaction has replaced the typical open cubicle office. The desire to be all consumed and surrounded by likeminded organizations with a rekindled attitude towards downtown. This spirit is captured in the project by combining a café, lounge, residential and open bay modular office spaces. A 14 bay complex designed for inter-collaboration among the tenants.

Rondolino Residence in Scotty’s Junction, Nevada by nottoscale

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

Article source: nottoscale

The Rondolino residence is the prototype of the T-modulome, a prefabricated building system by nottoscale that was first developed in 2002.

Fabrizio Rondolino, an independent writer and author from Rome, Italy commissioned nottoscale to build the T-modulome on an isolated stretch of land in the Nevada desert near Scotty’s Junction. After a couple of challenges that nottoscale faced due to the remoteness of the site and the Wild West mentality of the local contractors, the building was finally completed in December of 2010. During the entire process the client and architect solely communicated via e-mail and did not even meet or talk once.

Silverland Middle School in Fernley, Nevada by Tate Snyder Kimsey

Thursday, September 8th, 2011

Article source: Tate Snyder Kimsey

Situated in the Fernley Valley, Silverland Middle School presents a contemporary reflection of both the built and natural context of northern Lyon County Nevada. The school’s setting is a pastoral island in the vast, intemperate landscape of the Great Basin. Developed through a series of locally driven design charrettes, this facility was designed as part of a new educational campus for the Lyon County School District; serving as a new landmark in an otherwise expansive context, while providing a sense of permanence and identity for this booming historic community.
