She received the NM Architects Medal in 2000 for “contributions that have advanced the profession and the socially responsible role that architecture must perform within our greater society.” In 2002, she was honored with membership into the national College of Fellows of the AIA and was recognized as Business Woman of the Year by Santa Fe’s Business and Professional Women.

The major interest of the firm is to satisfy the needs and program of the client through the creation of environments that are spatially rich, articulated by sunlight and shadow, comfortable and welcoming. Respect for the surroundings and cultural context, whether urban or rural, is critical to each project. Durability and low maintenance are important aspects of our work. We look for opportunities to limit energy use, conserve water, and use non-toxic materials that are sustainably produced. We actively engage the client throughout the process to create a truly collaborative design. It is the firm’s goal to practice architecture as a fine and humanistic art serving our clients and the community. Spears Horn Architects strives to maintain the highest professional standards in all of our work.
