What Is the New Adobe Home?
The new adobe home is defined by a feeling or emotion created by a stunning composition of architecture, art, furnishings, space, gardens, history, and a sense of place-it reflects serenity, elegance, stateliness, and appropriateness. This quality very much embodies lifestyle and attention to detail and balance, generating a "wow" factor that can be the blending of many different ingredients.
While many beautiful new homes are being built with historic references and details, technical advances in adobe making and structural possibilities allow dramatic creations with openness and light. Contemporary ideas in collecting, presentations, and interior design can transform humble, historic adobe structures into sophisticated homes that pay homage to the past while charting new, exciting directions.
