"Our approach with The Modern was to design for today’s primary home buyer, with a modest, clean look. We used a lot of natural wood and contemporary furnishings," said Caroline Edsell, designer, BOKA Powell.
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) February 15, 2012
This week, BondRok Partners announced the completion of The Modern loft condominiums. With 83 mid-rise lofts ranging from 1,234 to 2,723 square feet, this new community presents a simple, clean style and a wealth of amenities including a resort-style pool and sun deck, two-story fitness center, three open courtyards, and an on-site concierge.
BOKA Powell was retained to create a clean, modern identity for the model condominiums, common areas and front entry. Three model residences are being furnished in a simple, sophisticated style, designed to appeal to a range of potential buyers:
1) Loft space: Designed with the bachelor in mind, using black, greys, whites, leather with modern art.
2) Two bedroom: Offers a super white, clean look, with natural wood, leather and textures.
3) Two bedroom + study: Provides a mix of contemporary and modern elements, artwork and furnishings suitable for families.
“Our approach with The Modern was to design for today’s primary home buyer, with a modest, clean look. We used a lot of natural wood and contemporary furnishings,” said Caroline Edsell, designer, BOKA Powell.
The furnishings were selected from affordable, quality stores including Room & Board and West Elm. Each unit is upgraded with European style cabinetry, travertine and solid surface countertops, KitchenAid Architect® Series appliances, Kohler plumbing fixtures and modern designer sinks. The lofts have ceilings reaching 21 feet high and include a private terrace or balcony.
BOKA Powell selected the furnishings and provided creative direction for the shared community amenities, including three open courtyards, a resort-style pool and spa, a sun deck with wet bar and cabanas, shaded poolside verandas, multiple barbeque grills, fire pits and pet parks.
“Having worked with BOKA Powell previously on the St. Regis Dallas development, we knew their superior design sensibility and understanding of clean, well-appointed living spaces would serve as a perfect complement to our vision for The Modern,” said Patrick Humes, principal with BondRok Partners. “We set out to create a stylish community that was unprecedented in Las Vegas and with BOKA Powell’s assistance, we have achieved that.”
BOKA Powell also created hyper realistic renderings of the project using sophisticated 3D Max visualization software. These renderings will be instrumental in demonstrating the potential and flexibility of the residential units to potential buyers.
The bank-owned property was originally developed under the name Luxe Lofts. BondRok Partners and CrossHarbor Capital Partners LLC bought the stalled project in May 2011 and retooled the design and construction to create The Modern.
