463 Paseo de Peralta
Considered among the top 3 significant landmarks in Santa Fe, the Scottish Rite Temple has been a downtown icon since New Mexico statehood in 1912. Los Angeles architectural firm of Hunt & Burns produced this Moorish Revival style structure based on the majestic Alhambra in Spain. Hunt & Burns- well known for their Spanish California Mission style- created an intersection between Spanish building traditions of New Mexico and of the Moors in southern Spain. Exceptionally preserved, meticulously maintained. Entering this elegant building is both a trip back in time and a marvel of architectural craftsmanship and artistic detail. Soaring ceilings, ample areas and spaces. Auditorium seats 400+/- in a setting of Moorish and deco motifs. A modern 3000+/- sq ft commercial kitchen stands ready for any large event. Apartments and other living quarters. Courtyard is a hidden oasis. Currently a location for civic, social and performance arts events, as well as traditional Mason gatherings.
