PAINTED SKY project was built in to the hillside. Barely visible, the earthen roof further diminished it’s public presence. Once you entered the home besides the small Koi pond, the house began to tier slowly down the hill, matching the natural topography of the landscape. Finally opening out to the vista and the twinkling lights of Santa Fe below. As a participant in the LEED for homes pilot project this home represented a significant step forward in sustainable design.
