This ridgetop residence in Santa Fe is organized around perpendicular board-fashioned concrete partitions. The partitions are an element of continuity, linking indoors and exterior spaces and the panorama beyond. A slender skylight runs the whole one hundred twenty five’ period of one of the partitions, casting converting shadows on the tough concrete over the span of the day.
The front of the house is set deeply into the earth. You input via a recessed courtyard and into a fab, non-public vestibule. an opening reduce into one of the concrete partitions then leads you into the main body of the house, where panoramic perspectives of the Sangre de Christos mountains are revealed. even though there are large expanses of glass, they may be all deeply shaded by using cantilevered roof bureaucracy that create porches across the perimeter.
The house enhances a feeling of connection to the site, both physically, and temporally, and affords a true sense of refuge.
