The owners of THIS Las Campanas residence wanted to add some artisan touches to their home during its comprehensive remodel by Tierra Concepts. The warm, inviting kitchen now includes lovely finishes and distinctive features, such as the unusual pocket doors at the entrance, which fold into their own cubby spaces to form what Tierra partner Kurt Faust calls a “coffered archway.” Metal sculptor Diego Velazquez of Santa Fe Metal Design created three unique backsplashes using an old technique called repoussé, in which sculptural, 3-D drawings are hammered into metal from the back. The resulting bas relief provides a textural, artistic focal point in the softly angular space. Tierra Concepts,
