This artist residency, located outside Santa Fe, New Mexico, is a collaboration between two architecture (Prarthan Shah & Nicole Vice) and two fine art students (Brooke Frank & Matthew Cronin). The chosen site has an existing house, home of two art collectors, and multiple land sculptures dispersed throughout the hilly terrain. Our proposal is to consolidate all the functions of the artist residency into one structure in order to minimize impact on the landscape and preserve the existing site for the artists to discover. The proposed building is situated on a low ridgeline, distinctly separated from the existing house, which provides views to both the higher hills of the Santa Fe National Forest to the east and out into the larger Santa Fe Valley to the west. The building is organized through two masses along the exterior of the building where all the service spaces are carved or subtracted from the thickness. This leaves the interior of the building to be open served spaces with varying porosities. The programmed interior spaces become internalized, which heightens the distinction between the exterior and interior. While the main interior spaces are structured, the poche invites a unique opportunity to carve into the mass and create moments of discovery and individualization for the occupants.
