Las Vegas Showcase House
We invite all design professionals to submit their names for consideration in our 1st annual Las Vegas Showcase House. This year's historic home is located in the Scotch 80s neighborhood, a planned community dating back to the early 1950s and considered to be the center of old Las Vegas.
The Scotch 80s is known for ornate architecture featuring gigantic exposed beams and gracious porte cocheres. It's also noted for the greenery on charming streets like Shadow Lane, Silver Av enue, and Bannie Avenue. It's a place where people used to keep horses in barns and get water from wells. 
A neighborhood that's long attracted casino titans, world-famous entertainers, and prominent Vegas power brokers, the Scotch 80s is remarkably quaint.
This year's selected home was permitted in 1959 and completed in 1961 by Walter Siebert. Setting on a 1.28 acre parcel, the 5,300 square foot concrete block home is sure to be a crowd pleaser and a designers dream. A full basement, a Las Vegas rarity, is just one of the many areas that will come alive by local design talent.
An estimated 18 designers will be selected, one for each room for the Showcase. Also entries are being accepted for landscape architects, contractors, vendors, manufacturers can all participate. 
We welcome Las Vegas Design Center as one of our Sponsors.
Deadline for entry submissions is: Friday, June 24th 2016 at 6 pm PST.
Send your Bios and Portfolios to:
Las Vegas Showcase House, Core Academy, 
701 S. 9th St., Las Vegas, NV 89101
