Morrow Bowden Architects with Joe D'Urso Design :
This contemporary residence sits within a 4,000 acre ranch between two New Mexican villages.
The landscape is bold and barren, in the broad plains at the bottom of the Rocky Mountain range.
The great grasses and windy site call for design solutions with references to American Plains architecture.
Walls provide wind breaks, privacy and define domesticated landscape separate from the wild terrain beyond.
Interior planes provide quiet, contemplative spaces.
