The homeowners coveted the Santa Fe style of architecture for aesthetic purposes, and for its thick walls that provide insulation from harsh temperatures. Earth-toned Saltillo tiles were used throughout the interior as well as in an exterior courtyard and around the pool. An outdoor living environment features a fireplace and covered lounge. Adobe stucco, heavy doors, parapets (low walls that extend above the roofline) and traditional protruding “vigas” (wooden beams) were used, all notable components of the Santa Fe style, with the home’s interior walls a smooth troweled finish.
This project was featured in a “Before & After” article in Sarasota Magazine and in the Junior League Holiday Tour of Homes.
