The classic Southwestern Santa Fe aesthetic features regional products of wood and stone, deep and varied recesses where light plays across walls, and the soft brown palette that highlights hand-crafted doors and windows. Ceiling treatments vary from latillas or cedros, grapestakes or highly decorative painted and glazed wood planking. Smooth, sometimes tinted, plaster outlines the nichos, bancos, and coved ceilings. Deep-set portals please the eye and offer shade and comfort as well.
Denman & Associates has been lucky to work on a residence that is part of the original cerro or plaza in Chimayo. We have renovated 200-year-old structures on Canyon Road and classic adobe ranches in Galisteo, Arroyo Hondo, and Tesuque. Our attention to both the design aspects and the construction itself is calculated and careful and always with an eye toward the aesthetic that forms the core of Santa Fe architecture.
