Southwest Adobe – Taos, New Mexico
EDGE Architects and David Naylor Interiors designed the residence as a Traditional Southwestern expression. The scope of the woodwork consisted of the kitchen, all bathrooms, and stair. The program was to provide an “aged or distressed” finish to all the new cabinets. This consisted of hand planed surfaces with a paint and glazed surface as well as stained and distressed cherry for the kitchen and stained distressed carved oak for the stair. The challenge was to fit family painted panels, from an old house, in new wood frames. Each piece of cabinetry was its own proportional arrangement with its own traditional detailing. In the end, the families paintings were preserved within a new context.
