The design of this residence is also about solar orientation and views which are factored, including internal privacy and water management for better living activities. This residence sits in a beautiful landscape at the juncture of the flat bottom-land of the Tesuque River and a steeply-rising mesa to the east.

The juncture of the flat bottom-land of the Tesuque River and a steeply-rising mesa to the east is the Acequia Madre de Tesuque. It is one of the oldest natural drainage systems in North America that runs through the valley. The Acequia managed along historic principles of shared irrigation that established in the early 18th century.

With the Acequia Madre de Tesuque, this residence is also designed to integrate its architecture into the Acequia structure. This architecture is also framed by the retaining wall that backed up to the mesa. The result of the design and architecture is a comfortable residence with an awesome connection to its stunning landscape.
