Van Drimmelen/Gore

This home, which earned three awards in the Santa Fe 2011 Parade of Homes, including best kitchen, best overall design and the Grand Hacienda Award, provides a serene, secluded retreat in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. The architecture recedes back to frame panoramic views, and light is used as a form-defining element.

Paying close attention to the topography of the steep lot allowed for minimal intervention onto the site. While the home feels strongly anchored, this sense of connection with the earth is wonderfully contrasted with open, elevated views of the Jemez Mountains. As a result, the home appears to emerge and ascend from the landscape, rather than being imposed on it.

“John and I were speaking about how fortunate it was that you were willing to work with us again after all the drama we had in trying to get the house out of the ground.  Thank you, thank you, thank you….without you and your amazing energy we would never have been able to make this happen….we would have bought something or had a really different house.  Instead it is so beautiful! Congratulations on all your awards. You really, really deserve them. If it was not for you we would not be living here today. Jon, you deserve all the credit for getting that incredible design on a truly difficult site. Own up to it dear architect!!”
