Gayla Bechtol started her eponymous architecture firm located in Santa Fe, New Mexico to help her clients go beyond what they can imagine from traditional to contemporary. She gained her formal education at University of Texas, Southern California and Harvard University Graduate School of Design and continues to pursue knowledge and creativity every day in the context of the beauty of the built and natural world. We created our site to help you get the right information at the right time. Enjoy! We look forward to hearing from you.
One of the challenges of buying and building in the Historic Districts of Santa Fe is knowing if your building is considered protected by the Preservation laws of the City and State. As a Certified Historic Architect in New Mexico I am qualified to perform a Historic Cultural Properties Inventory and make a recommendation to the Governing Body.
