The New American Home 2014

Overlooking the views of the Las Vegas Strip, the 2014 New American Home® merges energy efficiency and sustainability with a contemporary transitional style. This 6,700-square-foot home is a blend of old world traditional and the modern elements of chrome and glass, resulting in a unique design that is classic, timeless, and elegant.

Comfort on Demand: Solar Shade at the Touch of a Button

A key area of the home that blends the two is the expansive outdoor living area with a large patio featuring an outdoor kitchen and a pool. It was necessary to find a way to merge the interior and exterior spaces in order to allow occupants to enjoy the outdoors without having to suffer from the sun`s heat and glare.

The design team selected Phantom’s retractable screens with a solar mesh in charcoal finish which features a sun control factor of 90% and openness of 10%. The screens help significantly reduce the exposure to UV rays and block hot air from entering the home, plus control the temperature of the area where the screens are used. By recessing the components, the ten screens remain completely out of sight when not needed, uniting the indoor and outdoor spaces in a creative way.

Powered by Somfy®, Phantom`s motorized screens are fully integrated into the home's automation system, making it easy to program the screens to operate automatically whenever needed.
