Function and artistry imbue this architectural masterpiece set on a ridge high above the Santa Fe Opera house. The striking contemporary design inspired by the concentric building layouts of the Anasazi creates a fitting contrast against the clear New Mexico skies. The thoughtful interior space is designed with curved halls that gradually reveal discrete rooms finished in a color palette that complements the natural colors of the surrounding landscape. There are abundant opportunities to display art throughout the home with 31 nichos specifically designed to showcase an art collection. Large glass panels frame the natural beauty of the high-desert setting with 360 degree views of the spectacular Sangre de Cristo and Jemez mountain ranges, while careful placement of the house also allows an active solar heating system to take advantage of the clear weather providing clean, free energy for the radiant heating system. Cooling is handled by a 5 zone forced air conditioning system, with ducts hidden beneath floor, while a central water feature provides both beauty and humidity. The guesthouse echoes and expands upon the chaco contemporary aesthetic present throughout the property, and is a comfortable long-term living space. Access to the neighborhood is protected by a guarded gate, and the location allows quick access to both the downtown Plaza and the Santa Fe Airport.
