Haciendas Parade of Homes 2014 / House #5

  Sited on a generous, east-sloping lot, this efficient, contemporary home connects an architecturally powerful building with its natural surroundings via terraces, open but sheltered courtyards, carefully placed portals, and native and drought-tolerant landscaping. The outdoor elements include a water feature creating a courtyard for quiet reflection, while the hardscapes are playfully mixed and arranged to lighten the mood. The result are outdoor rooms to be enjoyed during all four seasons, a lifestyle we strive for here in New Mexico. Designer / Architect: James A.
