Perhaps a price drop will entice someone to snatch up this impressive prefabricated home in Las Vegas, Nevada. First listed for $14,500,000 in 2018, the residence is now asking $10,500,000—still a hefty price tag, but one that reflects an innovative design by Marmol Radziner and an installation by James Turrell. Comprising 36 modules that were assembled on-site in just four days, it’s one of the renowned firm’s few prefab projects.
At 12,991 square feet, the steel-frame structure is also an impactful example of how far prefab designs can be stretched without compromise. Marmol Radziner, who also managed the fabrication in their own factory, originally built the home for the family of Jim Murren, former chairman and CEO of MGM Resorts International.
Murren contacted the firm after learning about Leo Marmol and Ron Radziner’s award-winning restoration of the iconic Kaufmann Desert House by Richard Neutra. A mutual connection with artist James Turrell, whose work Murren collects, sealed the deal and eventually led to Turrell's own involvement in the project.
In our 2016 interview, Murren described his desire for eco-friendly construction—something he worked to introduce at MGM properties and others around Las Vegas. But he also wanted a home that meshed with the local landscape. "I support the creation of buildings that have a positive environmental impact, and in Las Vegas, I think you need to embrace the desert," he said.
"Prefab was clearly the best and greenest way to go," Radziner added. "During the four months it took to prepare the two-level concrete basement garage and foundation, the home’s room modules were manufactured in California." The structure comprises 24 modules dedicated to interior space and 12 for exterior spaces, including covered terraces and poolside pavilions. Once all of the modules were set in place, the project took an additional three months to complete on-site.
Offering five bedrooms and seven bathrooms, the capacious residence also comes with a subterranean parking garage and indoor basketball court. The gated site was also landscaped with drought-tolerant and native species, allowing the home’s rust-colored exterior to blend in its surrounds. Keep scrolling to see more.
