Showcasing New, Flexible Designs

By Karen Nakamura Posted in: BIARemodel

Each year in conjunction with the National Association of Home Builders’ International Builders’ Show, a home is built that showcases innovative products for the future — and features great ideas for anyone thinking of building or remodeling a home.

The New American Home® (TNAH) in the suburbs of Las Vegas, Nev., is the 30th edition of TNAH. It incorporates the latest concepts that can be replicated — in whole or in part — in housing built any region and in any price range.

This contemporary home features a focus on flexible spaces and outdoor living, trends that continues to gain popularity nationwide. The home takes maximum advantage of Nevada’s year round temperate climate with easy flow from indoor to outdoor spaces. The main room expands into the backyard and pool area through large automated pocket doors that open at the touch of a button and allow for cross ventilation and unobstructed views. An outdoor daybed is located just behind the master bedroom, and the rejuvenation room opens to the outdoors on three sides like a spa.

Flex space planning throughout the home makes it convenient for young professional families and older generations to live together yet still maintain independent lives. Common gathering spaces are included among private living areas, a design feature that encourages unlimited movement within the space by all members of the household.
