Mesa Vista Home

At 2700 square feet, this Straw Bale home sits on the sagebrush Mesa just outside of the Town of Taos.   Designed by our friends at Edge Architects, this  home is beautifully situated with commanding views to the northeast including Taos Mountain and the high peaks of the Sangre de Christo range, and the open rolling Mesa to the west where dramatic sunsets occur daily.  Thick Straw Bale exterior walls allow for deep interior window sills, and provide excellent insulation from weather and sound.  The entrance to the home is a round Adobe mud room with exposed brick and a Viga and Latilla ceiling set in a diminishing, off set square pattern within an octagonal border.  There is more exposed Adobe brick in the Master Bedroom where it curves to form two walls of the Master Bath.  Within this wall we inserted random pieces of glass block.

Ceramic tile floors are throughout and are heated by a radiant floor system.
