Simply Exquisite by Design. Casa Mirador harnesses the best of modern design with a resonance on Ancient Traditions. Spectacular views adorn the property set in the Abiquiu landscape so beloved by generations of artists; most notably the late Georgia O'Keeffe, a painter who made claim to these speckled mesas, craggy mountain outcroppings and verdant river valleys. The architecturally significant 2400 square foot studio boasts an open floor plan whose design is as inspiring as the landscape itself. Exposed Steel and Concrete elements compliment the stacked mud and straw bricks used with precision to segment the structure. There are patterns here: The repetition of exposed adobes which envelope the repeated window details on the bermed northern wall, the custom crafted, sculptural, open steel trusses radiate gracefully to support the roof.
