Foothills residence

Location: Albuquerque, NM

Completed: 2014

Set in the foothills of the Sandia Mountains, this residence is surrounded by native oaks, boulders, and challenging topography.  The Owner wished to create a sculpture garden with paths that encouraged guests to explore the unique setting.  MRWM created a hierarchy of paths, connecting existing nodes with new spaces for rest and reflection.  Sculptural elements and natural views are revealed as the user moves through the garden, creating a dynamic landscape for exploration.
