Designer Bobby Berk wins Gold Nugget award for Pardee’s Sandalwood in Summerlin

Celebrity designer Bobby Berk took home a prized PCBC Gold Nugget award for Best Interior Merchandising of a Model Home for the Sandalwood Plan Two, built by Pardee Homes in the Summerlin master-planned community. PCBC competition recognizes top interior designers, builders, architects and land planners across the United States and internationally.

”We are thrilled to receive grand award honors in one of the first-ever interior design categories at the Gold Nugget Awards for our Sandalwood Plan Two project,” Berk said. “This model, which we designed in an organic modern style, is truly one of our favorite projects to date. It was a privilege to work with the team at Pardee Las Vegas, who gave us carte blanche to infuse this home with unique and custom details that allowed us to elevate the project to the next level. It was also a pleasure to help bring Woodley Architecture Group’s amazing canvas to life through the interiors. We want to extend our gratitude to all our collaborators for their support. The synergy of combined talents helped make this win possible.”

“Bobby Berk has put his signature on several award-winning Pardee Homes since our first collaboration on two show homes for the 2016 International Builders Show in Las Vegas,” said Pardee Nevada President Klif Andrews. “As creative director, Bobby has overseen interior design as well as outdoor amenities in select homes that celebrate our spirited Southwest indoor/outdoor lifestyle.”

Sandalwood Plan Two’s interior design was inspired by its Red Rock Canyon foothills setting and the home’s monumental sense of arrival, according to Berk, founder of Bobby Berk Interiors + Design.

The “organic contemporary” interior style utilizes natural materials in a neutral, textural and graphic palette, producing an interplay between nature and design. Locally sourced reclaimed wood gives the Plan Two a sense of history and charm, while the furniture is modern, yet casual, creating an effortlessly cool atmosphere.

Located minutes from Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, the newest Pardee neighborhood in Summerlin embraces the surrounding desert in its modern design aesthetic. Sandalwood showcases three striking architectural styles including Prairie Highland, Desert Modern and Mid-Century Modern.
