Santa Fe, New Mexico
Located upon the footprint of a
greenhouse, this incarnation sits
between a Pueblo Spanish style
adobe garage and a brilliant
International style residence in Santa
Fe’s historic district.
The greenhouse has a rough-cut moss
rock base supporting vertical and
sloping south-facing glass. The interior
concrete slab and walls provide
passive solar heat storage to
supplement the radiant heating.
Interior framing and trim is western red
cedar suitable for the humid
conditions. Lighting, ventilating and
misting systems are appropriately
simple for this working environment.
