Compound: 4,435 sf.

Situated on a unique location overlooking the Rio Pueblo and a grand view of the Sangre de Christo mountains Architect Nick Noyes designed a residence in a compound format. Looking for a unique material for the main living area rammed earth was selected; the other two wings are pumicecrete. There are also lots of built‐in casework and cabinetry.

Restorations: Arroyo Seco Plaza

A series of iconic, historic adobes that define the village.

This project comprised a restoration of a loose grouping of five buildings which had fallen into disrepair. Three older adobes and two poorly built wood frame buildings. Design was developed by American Design Group. After restoration of the adobe structures and rebuilding the frame units this group of buildings and their occupants help revitalize this corner of the small village of Arroyo Seco.

 

Additions:

Weiner Kitchen, 650 sf.

 A four‐season outdoor kitchen.

  •  To create a den as separate from the house.

  •  A Nanawall system to open up the space to the patio and view of the Taos valley.

Morgan Addition, 2,000 sf.

 Added on a master bedroom suite and studio suite to a house I built some years earlier. (Bottom)

  • The original house had the living room on the second floor to take in the views so the master

    bedroom addition was added via a bridge between the addition and the original house.

  • The owner wanted contemporary finishes of wood, stone, and smooth crisp walls.

Pruitt Bedroom, 350 sf.

A modest master bedroom expansion. (Below)

  •  Designed to take advantage of limited property and space within the yard wall.

  •  And to bring in the garden areas for the primary view relationship.

  •  Wood frame
