Located in the Las Vegas Arts District, the showroom occupies the former Gamblers Book Shop, a 63-year-old building and noted city landmark.
This $1.5-million project is part of an ongoing downtown revitalization and renewal of the Huntridge Theatre neighborhood.
The office building features meeting rooms, a business center, private offices, design library, living room, kitchen space and an outdoor showroom/patio.
The existing building shell and structural materials were reused, reducing typical construction waste. Existing brick was used as backdrop for wood and steel, highlighting the building entry that features an oversized pivotal door. Construction crews extended walls and employed weathered steel perforated mesh to create the illusion of a clean box. The building’s numerous upgrades include technology integrated into the walls, weathered steel panels, preserved and stained wood trusses and low-emitting flooring materials, paints and adhesives.
