The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) chose LG as Platinum Partner for this year’s featured “Net Zero” home in the Nevada desert outside of Las Vegas.


Built and designed by Michael Gardner, principal of Luxus Design Build/Studio g Architecture, TNAH is a desert-contemporary masterpiece located in the upscale luxury home community of Ascaya in Henderson, Nevada. The exhibition home presents two-levels with a chef’s kitchen, spa, game room, private office, outdoor fire features and a roof deck designed to capture Las Vegas and the scenic views of the mountain range. This contemporary home marks the 40th edition of this showcase and delivers yet another example of how the program continues to be on the cutting-edge of innovation and energy efficiency. With 7,575 total square feet of living space, the two-story property includes four bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a two-car garage, flex/exercise area, home office, indoor-outdoor living features, pool courtyard, a gas fireplace, numerous ultra-energy-efficiency elements, net-zero features, astonishing fire features and a luxurious outdoor kitchen.


As the official show home of IBS, TNAH 2023 is a symbol of energy efficiency and innovation/ The Luxus Design Build team worked with their building partners to produce a home that incorporates energy and material-saving strategies from design through construction, showcasing how any home can be transformed into a high-performance, high-tech space when integrating the latest building techniques and product innovations to reduce energy consumption, increase efficiency and enhance daily life. 


The home is expected to earn the highest marks for energy efficiency and performance, including the lofty goal of becoming one of the most energy efficient in the state of Nevada, if not the entire country, according to Travis Holden, project manager for Luxus Design Build.


According to Drew Smith, energy consultant, National Green Building Standard (NGBS) Master Verifier for the project and COO of Two Trails, Inc., “This year’s home is one of the most efficient in IBS show home program history and boasts an impressive negative 15 (-15) rating on the HERS (Home Energy Rating Score) Index, the industry standard by which a home’s energy efficiency is measured; by point of comparison, a home built to code scores a HERS Index rating of 100, while a net zero energy home scores zero - making this year’s project incredibly efficient. This level of efficiency would have been very difficult without the incorporation of LG’s highly efficient portfolio of ENERGY STAR® appliances and VRF (Variable Refrigerant Flow) HVAC technology,” said Smith. TNAH’s noteworthy environmental distinctions include National Green Building Standard "Emerald" certificationENERGY STAR building certification, EPA’s Indoor airPLUS certification and Zero Energy Ready status from the Department of Energy.
