Modern Desert Retreat in New Mexico

On the edge of the Sangre de Cristo foothills, Rancho Encantado is a modernist hideaway tucked within New Mexico’s Tesuque Valley. Once a decades-old dude ranch, newly reinvented as a Four Seasons, the retreat was designed to preserve and embrace its 57 unspoiled acres with 65 pueblo-style casitas blending into the rural desert landscape. And although new agey downtown Santa Fe is just a stone’s throw, the vibe here is a refreshing fusion of Southwest meets mid-century modern style—sans dream catchers and mystic clichés.

Reinterpreting traditional adobes into high desert modern design, architecture firms Hart Howerton and Aiken Pate Architects utilized earthy palettes and local materials to echo the natural surroundings.
