2007 Inaugural Winner - Galisteo Residence, Galisteo, NM

Morrow Bowden Architects, Santa Fe, NM

Suby Bowden and John D. Morrow, former architectural partners now heading their own Santa Fe-based firms, were awarded the inaugural Jeff Harnar Award for Contemporary Architecture for the Galisteo residence of Emily Fisher-Landau and Sheldon Landau. The residence sits in the middle of a 4,000-acre ranch. The landscape on which the home sits “is bold and almost barren,” the architects wrote in their concept statement, calling “for design solutions which bold references to American plains architecture.” Outdoor walls, patios and courtyards were “designed to differentiate between the domesticated and the wild landscape,” the architects said, “with shaded pathways (providing) gentle transition between buildings."
