Watch: Building One’s Dream Home With Daniel Chenin

Ascaya Robb Report

In this all-new film, Daniel Chenin, principal architect of Las Vegas architecture and design firm Daniel Joseph Chenin Ltd, takes viewers through the design process behind creating his family’s dream home at Ascaya.

The Perfect Family Home
From location to amenities, there are numerous factors to consider when building a dream home for your family. In the film, Daniel unveils what drew him to Ascaya, touching on the community’s family-friendly amenities, design flexibility, stunning natural landscape, and more. With Daniel having two young children, living where his kids can freely roam from home to amenity spaces effortlessly and safely was critical in cultivating his dream home. Daniel intimately understands that one’s home environment has an immense impact on one’s lifestyle. He emphasizes that selecting the right home environment is essential in promoting growth and wellness for your loved ones – and Ascaya’s homesites invite you to do just that.

“One of the great things that building a custom home really does for a family is that it really promotes better health and wellness with your psychological and physical well being because you have a place and an environment that is your sanctuary – it’s your most private and intimate space that is custom-tailored to how you want to live.” – Daniel Chenin, Principal Architect: Daniel Joseph Chenin Ltd.

The Desert Design Influence

In the film, Daniel explains that Ascaya’s design guidelines encourage great architecture that complements the surrounding desert environment – such as optimizing striking views every chance one gets. Daniel mentions that these design guidelines – never design “rules” – challenge architects to find solutions that make sense within the context of the region, yet still offer an experience that one won’t find anywhere else. 

“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.”

The Ascaya Community

From its five-star amenities to its community trails, Ascaya offers meaningful and memorable experiences for every resident. For Daniel, it was important to his family that they found a strong sense of community in the place they lived in – which he quickly found at Ascaya – where his family can grow, evolve, and cultivate the lives and homes of their dreams.

“We get to go through this process of creating a custom home for families that we get to evolve and grow into, and also being a member of this community and meeting families that we’re going to grow and evolve with, as well as all the amenities and the services that Ascaya has to offer, I think everything is going to be a great evolution as it moves forward into the future.”
