The Katz-Cerrillos House was the second home designed by Morrow Bowden Architects,
with project manager Ted Connelly for Joan and Ira Katz.
The Cerrillos foothills have historically been a mining community, with many existing mining structures remaining,
all built up on stilts along the hillsides. Therefore we used similar imagery, with a contemporary twist.
The home was designed to serve as a house, and as an art studio. Windows to views were designed to provide full light all day, and views of the moon at night.
The central entry was designed to act as a solar clock on the floor.
