Ascaya Living: The Desert Design Influence

Complete with elevated desert contemporary design elements and indoor/outdoor living spaces, the incredible homes at Ascaya take inspiration from the vast landscape that surrounds them. No two homes are alike, yet the community as a whole offers the ultimate expression of desert design.

Desert Inspiration

Marked by earthy colors and textures, stone, wood, and brushed steel, along with indoor/outdoor living spaces that invite in the desert expanse, Ascaya’s luxury home community is a reflection of its environment. Here, floor-to-ceiling glass unveils exceptional mountain, canyon, and Las Vegas Strip views. Defined by lines, colors, and materials that mirror the earth and accentuate the desert skies, each and every home here offers a unique interpretation of the surrounding landscape.

Design Guidelines

Ascaya’s design guidelines inspire great architecture that complements the surrounding desert environment – such as optimizing striking views every chance one gets. The community employs design guidelines rather than design “rules” that challenge the participating architects to find solutions that offer an inimitable experience, while still making sense within the context of the area.

Daniel Chenin, the principal architect of Las Vegas architecture and design firm Daniel Joseph Chenin Ltd., spoke to these guidelines, stating, “What’s great about Ascaya is that it’s ‘design guidelines,’ it’s not ‘design rules,’ and they are written in such a way to promote great architecture that is inspired by the desert. The entire community was extremely supportive of the process. They really want to promote good design, and they want to challenge the designers to come up with solutions that are atypical but also of the context of the region and of the desert.”

Maximized Views

Built into the McCullough Mountain Range, Ascaya rises from the desert floor like a series of magnificent stone steps. Here, homesites range in elevation from 1,900 to 3,200 feet, providing each home and homesite with an incredible view of the mountains, canyons, and the world-renowned Las Vegas skyline. Ascaya’s unique architecture mimics the natural setting of the desert while maximizing views and privacy for all homeowners. The 670-acre luxury community enjoys 31 miles of
