New Mexico's unique architectural tradition continues today with the use of centuries old design themes, materials and craftsmanship.

Spaced planks overhead allow filtered sunlight to brighten the entire area, while protecting the house from the harsh western sun. Designer: Steve Appolloni, Appolloni Designs
