Reno, NV

Located at the southern end of the Reno-Tahoe basin and adjacent to The Summit, a new retail and entertainment destination, is INOVA. This 26.37-acre hybrid-housing community consists of 31 two- and three-story buildings featuring a total of 584 units, 117 of which are allocated as workforce housing for tenants who make 50 percent or less of the median income in Reno.

HPA Design Group is proud to have completed the interior design, detailing, and furnishings for INOVA in the “Biggest Little City in the World.” This contemporary development with thoughtfully curated amenity spaces is located 20 minutes south of the Reno-Sparks market. The team drew inspiration from the scenic views and spectacular colors of the valleys and Desert Mountain sunsets, which allowed them to set their intentions on bringing the outdoors inside. The client and design team also wanted to capitalize on the vibrant local community while ensuring the entire property was cohesive with its surroundings. Extensive research on demographics, natural yet durable finishes, and local entertainment, art, culture, and events molded the design concept.

The color palette was strategically selected to highlight Nevada’s breathtaking nature, with each color representing the dynamic local landscape. Rich blues signify the majesty of Lake Tahoe while warm beige tones symbolize the extraordinary Desert Mountains interwoven with dark woods, neutral gray tones, natural stone, subtle hints of green with various plant life and greenery, as well as pops of bright sunny yellow in the art and accessories.
