Shoji screens and moveable walls customize Newport Lofts interiors

Newport Lofts’ open-room interior designs provide homebuyers with the opportunity to create one-of-a-kind residences that meet their unique needs and preferences through design options — the most noticeable of which is moveable walls according to sales agent Sherry Latham.

“Traditional condominiums can limit the lifestyle options for buyers. They must adjust their life to conform to someone else’s idea of how to exist. At Newport Lofts, we provide a finished space complete with high-end kitchens and luxuriously appointed baths that can be further modified as part of the purchase,” Latham said. “At Newport Lofts, you are not confined to an architect’s preconceived idea of how to live.

“Our lofts are the foundation upon which each buyer builds his or her ideal environment. Two buyers might secure a home with the exact same square footage, but inside they may function differently. One might select a single-bedroom configuration and another might choose to have three sleeping areas. Be it an open airy loft or a more traditional floor plan with defined bedrooms, we are only limited by the buyer’s imagination.”

Latham said that a popular design option is the use of moveable walls.

“Moveable walls are a very popular option among our homebuyers. Professional designers from Faciliteq, our custom wall design firm, are available to meet with each home buyer to review moveable wall design options and how they can be utilized to help separate an open loft-style home into defined living spaces. Among the unique options that can help create separate spaces in a buyer’s preferred dimensions are Shoji screen doors, sliding wood-frame and glass-room dividers, fixed-glass panels, movable storage centers, entertainment and technology centers and transom styled interior windows,” Latham said.

“The homes are customizable in the sense that buyers can divide up the open space to use as they like in sleeping areas, work spaces and gathering places. They can choose straight, angled or curved walls, and define the heights and exact placement of the walls. The finishes are also customized and can feature, glass, metal, fabric or wood,” Latham said. “The benefit to homeowners is that their space conforms to them and how they want to live their life.”

Wall options are showcased in a few models including a penthouse and a studio in the 24-story high rise overlooking downtown Las Vegas. Buyers may also consider flooring options and furniture packages when selecting one of the 168 loft-style homes measuring from 911 to 3,052 square feet. Prices start from $179,900.

“During the sales process, we spend time with each buyer on order to determine exactly what they want in their new home and what it will look like at closing. Our goal is to deliver a living space that matches the way they enjoy life and supports how they spend their time,” Latham said.

In addition to being able to purchase a one-of-a-kind home, buyers gain access to private resort-style amenities, round the clock front desk services and secured parking.

Its SkyDeck is situated on the top floor and offers 360-degree views of the entire Las Vegas Valley with swimming pool and jetted spa, a running track that spans the perimeter of the deck, and state-of-the-art exercise facility complete with his and her locker rooms.

Also located on the 24th floor is the SkyRoom where residents can relax and socialize while utilizing widescreen TVs, billiards and wine bar.

The community is located at 200 Hoover Ave., just off Las Vegas Boulevard in downtown Las Vegas. The sales office is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Immediate move-ins are available.
