Obsidian, a single-family neighborhood within the Summerlin Masterplan, opened earlier this month.

Featuring modern and contemporary designs, the 94 single-family homes  range in size between 125,884 m2 (1355 sf) and 176,423 m2 (1899 sf) and offer two to three bedrooms across five floorplans.

The homes are located within the Summerlin Masterplan, an area known for its schools, outdoor activities, and entertainment options. They are situated on a hillside site, with the Red Rock Mountains to the West and the Las Vegas strip to the east.

Each home includes at least one office area, a design feature introduced following the increase in work-from-home employees. Further, the combination of both front-loaded and rear-loaded floorplans creates a streetscape that takes advantage of the existing topography; the result provides views of the Las Vegas strip, as well as private yards where possible.

The firm maximized outdoor space with a mixture of covered and uncovered areas on multiple levels of each home. Additionally, the homes feature multiple large window assemblies to help make the spaces feel larger.

Architecture firm KTGY worked with The Howard Hughes Corporation and Woodside Homes of Nevada to ensure the architecture and design complied with guidelines put in place by the Summerlin Design Review Committee.
