Great xuaxo 2006-02-27 2:04

Interesting notes about the tree, but the house is also very nice; is it typical New Mexico?.
Too much frame, IMHO.

Default To xuaxo: new mexico architecture

yes, the architecture is typically new mexican pueblo style. It is meant to look like adobe brick with thick plastered walls and rounded corners and exposed ceiling vigas. I believe that there is a Santa Fe city ordinance that all buildings within city limits must adhere to this style, so most of Santa Fe looks like this including shops, supermarkets and homes. This photo was taken out side of Santa Fe, but you can see how popular and common this architecture style is in New Mexico. It is not as ubiquious in the rest of New Mexico as in Santa Fe, but it tends to be more authentic and honest especially in poorer towns.
