In 2012, the Acequia Madre property included two homes on one lot, with a property wall between them.One a Territorial Revival Style home built circa 1900-20+/- with additions around 1960. Casita Vieja, a Spanish Pueblo Revival-Old Santa Fe Style home built circa 1902+/- with renovations in1920 +1940. The greatest preservation challenge was to sensitively join two very distinctly different styles with a contemporary addition to meet the owner’s needs for wall space and light. The new architectural remodel and restoration preserves the historic fabric of Santa Fe; by respecting the two existing styles, as well as affirming the existing streetscape by bringing the new addition up to the sidewalk. Primary facades were preserved. Existing windows+ doors were restored whenever possible, with new Territorial divided light windows. The recently-added adobe wall was removed, to provide a large central garden to unify the two homes + addition.
