ow that winter has finally unfolded into spring, I no longer feel like a caged animal, desperate to be outdoors. Granted, this past winter in New Mexico was certainly mild, but it only made me more anxious to be out in nature and to bring nature into my home. For me, the beauty of the outdoors is one of the most compelling reasons to live in New Mexico. It’s an extraordinarily lovely place with clean, crisp air, and offers every reason to embrace and live with the outdoors. Clever designers and builders realize that this connection with nature is important to home design, and in this issue of Su Casa Northern New Mexico, several of the houses you’ll read about incorporate the outdoors. Window walls, those folding or recessing glass panel doors that run the entire length and height of a room, allow entire walls to open up to fresh air and usually a patio. In the winter, the panels seal tight, yet still enable nature to be enjoyed from the warmth of the home. This embrace of the outdoors is now seen in many new homes. When you’ve got the nature, why not take advantage of it? For example, our cover story on the beautiful home designed by noted architect Jon Anderson as his personal residence, has several elements that capture and respect nature. Most notable to me was design of the house so as not to disturb the huge Austrian pine that has stood on the property for 100 years. I’m delighted when any new build can be performed without disturbing trees. Our other featured home achieves an embrace of nature by placing the home smack in the magnificence of National Forest land. This home was also designed and built to soak up the natural beauty even when its owners are not outdoors. Check out the great room windows! The bottom line is that there are so many ways to bring nature into your home and incorporate New Mexico’s precious beauty into your life. I’m guessing that it’s probably why you live here (or want to live here!) in the first place. If you can’t find a way to incorporate nature in your home, then simply step outside and inhale deeply. Spring is in the air. You can smell it, and it’s ready to be savored. Soak it up.

The Bosque is literally next door when architect Lee Gamelsky, AIA, LEED AP, BD+C, steps outside his home. Gamelsky has embraced not only beekeeping and farming, having planted some 30 fruit trees on his property, but the creation of strong connections to the surrounding land. In the east-facing courtyard, a geometric pond hosts goldfish and mosquito-eating gambousia fish, to the delight of his granddaughter. A study in the elements, the pond, with its bubbling water feature, is surrounded by boardwalks connecting the courtyard to sheds, storage areas, an outdoor shower, and a greenhouse, while concrete pavers provide access to the pond and other areas of the courtyard. Softening the acute angles and strong lines are smooth Mexican river stones, offering an interesting visual transition within the hardscaping. Lee Gamelsky Architects P.C., lganm.com

the core principles

I

’ve been renovating and building homes for nearly 45 years. In that time I’ve watched appliances and building materials evolve, change, and in some cases, disappear entirely. But when it comes to sound building practice, simplicity, integrity, and sustainability are the essential and timeless core values for Steve Thomas Builders—as I suspect they are for many other conscientious builders out there. Simplicity is the principle that things work best when kept as elemental as possible. In scientific argument this is known as elegance; in architecture, as minimalism; and in mechanical design as KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid). In architectural drawings, I look hard for what’s missing, but even harder for what’s superfluous. A good architect or designer will develop a design’s inner logic. I try to grab onto that and (on paper, anyway) eliminate anything that does not contribute. With electrical, plumbing, and HVAC systems I opt for the most simple and robust options, eschewing most automated lighting systems and overly complicated mechanical systems. Machines break. 24

SU C A S A S P R I N G 2018

The fewer you have in your house, the fewer you’ll have to fix. Integrity pertains to three categories: the quality of materials, the general level of craftsmanship, and the overall quality of the build. Integrity is a value and does not indicate of itself a higher price point. Regarding materials, you could specify a concrete floor or a marble floor. Both materials have integrity, but the concrete is less expensive. On the other hand, a cheap, poorly made vinyl floor makes the whole project feel cheap and poorly made. Regarding craftsmanship, a well-executed, complex window trim detail with crown molding, frieze board, and back band will be costly, while a well-executed, very simple square edge trim detail will be much less so.

It’s the high level of craftsmanship that gives both approaches integrity. Integrity in the overall build is a little harder to quantify, but in general it means doing the right thing even when no one will ever see it—building for the long term, if you will. Our family house in Salem, Massachusetts, was a first period colonial from the 1700s that I was constantly renovating, restoring, and updating over 27 years. I vividly remember stripping off the lath and plaster in the living room to reveal perfect timber frame joinery, executed and assembled with skill and respect, which had been hidden for some 200 years. Whoever put that frame together understood the notion of integrity in building. Sustainability became an overused term a few years ago, when “green building” was all

In homebuilding, what you can’t see is often more important than what’s visible to the eye. Simplicity, integrity, and sustainability are the hallmarks of quality building.

Big technological advances have been made in insulation, windows, sealing the envelope of the house, lighting, and heating and cooling equipment. Plus, we now understand the thermo- and vapor-dynamics of wall, basement, and attic spaces. We know how to build and renovate homes that are extremely efficient, very comfortable, healthy, and built to last the generations with a modicum of maintenance. My attitude is that since we have the knowledge and techniques to build sustainably, we are obliged to do so. Recently I attended a seminar on “Self Adhered Weather Resistant Barriers”— the latest and greatest form of house wrap. There were some older guys like me, as well as a whole crop of younger builders (men and women), who eagerly shared their experiences with the various brands and application techniques. I found it very cool that this next generation of builders and renovators—partly inspired by the television shows I worked on—really wants to build right. It’s not just a job for them; it’s a passion. Next time you’re looking for a contractor you might casually ask a question like: “Hey, what do the values simplicity, integrity, and sustainability mean to you?” How they answer the question just might determine whether you hire them or not.

ew Mexico boasts some of the country’s most remarkable scenery, not to mention a distinct quality of natural light that has inspired artists for ages. It’s no wonder homeowners in Northern New Mexico increasingly want to bring both into their homes, and are turning to window walls to capture panoramic views with zero obstruction. Referring to glass-paneled doors that can span the width of a home’s interior wall and can stretch from floor to ceiling, window walls have been popular in newly built homes in Albuquerque and Santa Fe for several years, and today are being manufactured with improved technology, such as thermal insulation, to help bring some of the outdoors inside without compromising comfort or efficiency. “Every decade or so, there’s a new trend in home remodeling that helps people give their homes a more contemporary look,” says Rebecca Shipman, general manager for Piñon Window & Door (pinonwindow.com) in Albuquerque. “Window walls are big right now, but it’s a trend that I don’t think is likely to go out of style. Manufacturers are getting synched up with the demand and are really delivering the goods with an impressive range of products.” While the possibilities are almost endless given that these systems can be extremely customized, there are a few types of systems to be considered, each with its own distinct selling points, according to Chris Williams, New Mexico sales manager for Sierra Pacific Windows (sierrapacificwindows.com). 26

NanaWall’s (nanawall.com) new Kitchen Transition system is a folding window/wall combination. Designed for flexible use, doors slide open to connect walk-through living spaces, while window panels fold back to join indoor and outdoor bars or counter spaces. Use either or both!


Folding system, or bi-fold doors, for example, look most like traditional French-style doors and feature an ease of passage through a hinged lead door. “Folding systems are an ideal option for exposed locations since the weather stripping and threshold designs will minimize the likelihood for water and air infiltration,” says Williams.

Today’s window wall products are being manufactured with improved technology, such as thermal insulation, to help bring some of the outdoors inside without compromising comfort or efficiency.

SU C A S A S P R I N G 2018

Folding systems are also ideal for homes with limited space considerations, according to Jim Dundon, general manager for Pella Windows and Doors (pellasw.com). “The bi-fold door opens much like an accordion, and is great for areas with limited wall space that won’t allow for the doors to retract into the wall or to slide to one end of the opening,” Dundon explains. “This is also a great product for retrofitting into a remodel of a smaller home.” For homes with fewer space restrictions, sliding glass-door systems with panels that stack neatly to one side when opened are increasingly popular. “This is a door that has multiple panels that open in the same manner as a sliding glass door with all panels stacking at one end or both ends,” says Dundon. “It allows for large openings of up to 53 feet!” If space allows, the cleanest look can be achieved with the installation of systems with panels that, on opening, retract into pockets directly within the walls. One version of the sliding system, Williams explains, is called a “lift/slide” and usually represents the most expensive option but possibly the cleanest look when fully open. “With rollers that retract, the lift/slide system enhances security and offers excellent air and water infiltration management,” says Williams. “The low profile threshold allows for a seamless transition from indoor to outdoor living spaces.” Whichever system a customer may choose, each comes with its own installation and structural concerns that must be addressed. “Since most doors are hung from the top, it might be worthwhile to consult a structural engineer to ensure that the headers and beams can bear the weight,” Shipman suggests. “Wall construction, pocket depths, wall thickness—all are critical design considerations that vary widely depending on the door system,” Williams adds. “Supplier, contractor, and designer collaboration is a must.” Whether your goal is to create a frameless view of the mountains from your great room or eliminate barriers between your outdoor and indoor living spaces, a window wall may be the best option for your Southwest home. Keep an eye out for window walls and sliding pocket doors as you tour houses on the Spring 2018 Parade of Homes.

atterned tiles, so prevalent in earlier decades in New Mexico in the boldly hued, hand-painted Mexican style, were largely replaced by solid colors, sleek materials, and glossy finishes in recent years. While that neutral look is fabulous, we’re delighted to see a return of patterned tiles, with gorgeous designs and bold geometrics in colors that are soft, muted, vibrant, and fun—and ready to take homes into the next decade of design.

caution: merging ahead! combining households requires conversation, compromise, and a creative direction

W

by Moll Anderson

hether you’re starting out or starting over, the very first step for couples preparing to merge their lives and belongings together under one roof is to set aside time to discuss a creative direction. If you’re having trouble coming up with a vision, try searching for design inspiration by perusing magazines like Su Casa, design catalogs, or online sites such as Pinterest. Make this assignment fun so that it feels more like a date than drudgery. Pour some wine, bring out a platter of your favorite cheeses, fruits, and crackers, and enjoy! Once you’ve each chosen images of rooms you love, sit down and compare your design styles. Some of the most interesting and fabulous rooms I’ve been a part of have come from collaborations. It’s important to always remember that your home is going to be a reflection of both of you together! The next step is all about the merge and purge. More stuff means more clutter, so it’s a good idea to work through who’s going to bring what before the big move. The most important rule: Watch your language. Say goodbye to mine and hello to ours. If you’ve been living on your own for some time, it is likely that each of you have accumulated some of the same things. You won’t need two of everything, so decide what to keep and what to donate. Kitchen items and appliances are easy things to make decisions about, but there will be some items neither of you will want to part with. I suggest limiting a “must-keep” to one item each.

Color Merge Exercise. If you were going to decide what color bench to put under this George Condo painting (left), what color would you choose? What colors would you choose together? Start with all the colors in your painting or inspiration piece and choose several fabrics in textures you love that match those colors. Individually, write down your first, second, and third choices. Read your choices aloud to see which ones you each picked. If your first choices don’t match, it’s okay! Discuss your preferences and choose from the other selections. If you can’t agree, sleep on it. Try again later with a fresh perspective. If you still can’t agree, then realize a compromise must be made. Sometimes metallic or neutrals can resolve the conflict. 32

SU C A S A S P R I N G 2018


I promise you there is always one item that one party can’t let go of (and the other just can’t stand to see!) in his or her new home. Take the time to learn and understand where the emotional attachment comes from. If the item must come into your home, propose a compromise. If he insists on that old recliner you’ll despise seeing every day, suggest having it reupholstered or find a location

The most important rule: Watch your language. Say goodbye to mine and hello to ours. that isn’t too busy like an office or man cave. Consigning furniture is another great option; consign what you both don’t love, and use the money to buy something new that you do love. Most importantly, come up with a unified plan together—the “this is us” plan. Remember, how you start out living together forms the basis of your relationship, so every decision requires the three C’s: conversation, compromise, and care.

doing his own thing architect Jon Anderson infuses a bit of modernism into the old neighborhood

SU C A S A S P R I N G 2018

rchitects and custom homebuilders are notorious for designing and building a new-and-improved home for themselves every few years. The ability to design ever-better homes is certainly alluring, and of course it’s a great way to showcase one’s building chops. But it doesn’t say much about an investment in community. Renowned modernist architect Jon Anderson, FAIA, of Albuquerque-based Jon Anderson Architecture, has never been a house-flipper. In fact, Anderson recently designed and built his first and only custom personal home—practically next door to the one he lived in for 42 years.

The final design of the house, adapted to an attractive and sedate bungalow style, complements the district while holding forth a modernist soul. Originally from Rockford, Illinois, Anderson moved to Albuquerque in 1970 to attend UNM’s school of architecture. A year later he met his future wife, Laura, and they purchased their first home in 1976. Anderson was Antoine Predock’s senior associate for 13 years before he struck out on his own. For 45 years he has been racking up awards for spectacular residential and commercial projects in Albuquerque and across the country, clean-lined, glass- and steel–forward structures that were modern before (at least in New Mexico) modern was cool. He and Laura raised two children in their quiet downtown neighborhood. Rather than moving into new homes over the years, however, the Anderson family has nurtured a love of their neighborhood and community. They weren’t Left: The front entry affords an impressive sweeping view of the main floor of Jon Anderson and Laura Daby’s home, with plenty for the eye to take in: elaborate steel and walnut stairwells, iconic midcentury modern furnishings, and a honed strip of marble flooring that extends from front door to back door.

inclined to leave the neighborhood that offered easy walkabilty to downtown eateries and entertainment, not to mention the neighborly relationships they’d carefully cultivated over many decades. “Laura and I walk everywhere, to restaurants and the movies,” says Anderson. “We go to concerts at the convention center, Launchpad, El Rey Theater, Sister Bar. We ride our bikes a lot.” He adds, “If I could never drive a car, that would be my choice. On a good week I may not drive for three days straight.” No worries about that anymore; his office, a building that dates to 1918, sits between their former home, now a rental, and their new home. No commute necessary. During the planning stages, the Landmarks & Urban Conservation Commission deemed the exterior of Anderson’s original home design too modern, to Anderson’s chagrin. It needed to blend in and be more compatible with existing homes in the neighborhood, they said. “Most of the houses in the old downtown


neighborhood are a variation on a cottage or bungalow style,” says Anderson, who reworked his original design to fit it more seamlessly with other homes on the street—on the outside, at least. The final product, adapted to an attractive and sedate bungalow style, complements the district while holding forth a modernist soul. Behind the unassuming exterior walls, however, the interiors are very modern.

“Because of our relationship, Jon and I are able to design and problem-solve on the fly. We can resolve problems instantly in the field.”—Paul Kenderdine One might think it daunting, nerve-racking even, to be the builder tasked with constructing the personal home for such an esteemed architect. But Paul Kenderdine, owner of PWKI LLC, couldn’t have been better prepped for the job. Kenderdine recently celebrated 30 years of custom construction in Albuquerque. He started as a draftsman at SMPC Architects where renowned architect George Pearl was his mentor. Two decades ago, Kenderdine bid on a custom Above: Sleek, unfussy, and neat as a pin, the kitchen is ultrafunctional with all appliances within easy reach of the central island and marble countertop prep spaces.

home project for Anderson and won it. The two have been working together ever since, on both residential and commercial projects. A peek at either of their portfolios shows the admirable list of projects they’ve completed together. Still, they’re not exclusive, and Kenderdine recognizes the rich pool of local building talent in the Duke City Anderson might have pulled from in building his personal residence. “We were honored that he selected us,” says Kenderdine, “but I also think it meant he was confident we could produce what he was looking for.” Through the years, Anderson and Kenderdine have developed a seamless way of collaborating, communicating, and anticipating each other’s needs. “Jon really knows how I think; I know how he thinks. I know how he wants things put together,” says Kenderdine. “Because of our relationship, we’re able to design and problem-solve on the fly. We can resolve problems instantly in the field.” When building plans were finally approved, the existing home, a rental property Anderson

owned, was razed. Then, it took about 18 months to build the 2,600-square-foot, three-bedroom, LEED Platinum–certified home gracing the lot today. Anderson planned the layout around preserving a very tall, 100-year-old Austrian pine tree, snugging the house right up to it. A crisp row of glass doors affords a street-side view of a lofty ceiling and steel catwalks within. The top story comprises the minimalist master suite, with a bedroom, a walk-in closet, and bathroom. It also hosts a media room containing their sole television, and an outdoor patio from which they can hail passing neighbors. Indoors, the metal walkways with their open risers allow Jon and Laura to chat comfortably with each other or guests who are on the first floor below. A honed marble strip hand-finished by Kenderdine himself leads from the front door (the middle story of the house) and draws the eye across the room to the spacious, modern kitchen.

Both the master bedroom (above) and its bathroom (left) are simply designed and deliberately minimalist. Eschewing big colors and elaborate tile patterns, Anderson opted to work roof angles and well-placed windows into each space’s design for a different kind of visual interest.

Jon and Laura christened their new home by hosting their daughter’s wedding here last year. Today they’re well established in their new digs, enjoying a modern home that not only suits their personal taste, but that’s tucked into their familiar and much-loved old neighborhood, close to their favorite haunts and people.

BEAUTIFUL BATHS: SPA RETREAT

No doubt about it, this master bath—clad in pink tile and brass trim—was in dire need of updating. Ruben Cabrera, a designer with Poulin Design Center, says, “We were able to change the entire look of the room while keeping the footprint intact—walls, fixtures, and plumbing are still in place.” A massive whirlpool tub was replaced with a sleek new Kohler jet tub, and a lower threshold shower pan was incorporated. The overall palette is a soothing blend of whites and grays, including the patterned ReBath material used in the shower, and the linear mosaic tile tub skirt.

BEAUTIFUL BATHS: STYLISTICALLY BALANCED

all the luxury

Remodels are infinitely more common on Santa Fe’s historic eastside than new builds, so when Erica Ortiz Berke of Neubleu Interior Design and Cody North of True North Builders had the opportunity to build a new home in the area from the ground up, they jumped at the chance. The home’s exteriors fit predictably within the historic district’s parameters, but inside, the lines are crisper and cleaner, with warm tones and wood accents. “It reads to people who like traditional and contemporary; it has that balance to it,” says Ortiz Berke. She calls the master bathroom “the ultimate in luxury.” Though sumptuously appointed with custom cabinetry and lighting, hand-brushed travertine, high-end hardware, a bronze towel warmer, and a quartz stone wall in the shower (which required the muscles of 12 men to get into place), the bath doesn’t seem at all fussy. “It has all the material comforts,” says Ortiz Berke, “but it’s really about simplicity and a serene environment.” Neubleu Interior Design, neubleu.com; True North Builders, truenorthbuildersnm.com SUCASAMAGAZINE.COM

BEAUTIFUL BATHS: A BOLD EXPERIMENT

Sandy Peinado is no stranger to color. Working for the Santa Fe International Folk Art Market, she walks the talk in her own home when it comes to embracing folk art and all its traditionally vibrant hues. In turning her home into a de facto folk art gallery, she and interior designer Jeff Fenton of Reside Home wanted something bold and different for the renovation of a guest bathroom. A peacock-themed Talavera sink sparked an idea, and before long a striking combination of blue, green, white, and yellow Arabesque tiles had been enthusiastically agreed upon. What hadn’t been decided on was exactly how much of the tile would be used. Fenton presented his clients with three options: the shower, the backsplash wall, or all four walls. He was thrilled when Peinado and her husband, Arnie, opted for Door Number Three and a wall-to-wall explosion of tile. Fun and unexpected, the Peacock Bath is a wholly unique design experience.

BEAUTIFUL BATHS: COOL AND CLEAN

A master bathroom should be easily accessible, comfortable, and have plenty of storage for the owners of the home. This bath, a remodel in Albuquerque, delivers all three qualities. “The entire bath was rearranged,” says designer Kathy Jackson of Marc Coan Designs. “We moved the closet, the dressing room, and the bathroom to create a bigger and more convenient closet and the accessible, curbless shower.” The palette, a soothing blend of grays chosen by Steffany Hollingsworth of HVL Interiors, mixes and matches large-format tiles in the shower to create an instant focal point. Scraps of green soapstone used in an earlier kitchen remodel were incorporated into the bath; coupled with the warm cherry cabinetry, the delicately patterned countertops add texture to a space that’s cool, clean, and understated.

a Craftsman-style lodge with National Forest views is a nature-loving family’s personal paradise

Finished in a variety of materials—stacked stone, wood, stucco, and metal—Hank and Jennifer Bohnhoff’s lodge-style home offers plenty of visual interest with its multiple pitched roofs. Kelly green adds an appropriately woodsy feel to the residence.

s the leader of a women’s hiking group that ranged all over the Sandias, Jennifer Bohnhoff knew what her version of paradise looked like. So when a fellow hiker told her about lots for sale on the back side of the mountain next to the National Forest, she and her husband Hank, an attorney, went to look that very weekend. That was 15 years ago. The Bohnhoffs figured they would let their five-acre piece of heaven sit empty until they retired, visiting only for cookouts and stargazing with their sons. But retirement is still a decade away, and the Bohnhoffs, in 2018, are already enjoying a panoramic view of nature from their living room. The lodge-like home built by Ted Lowe of Lowe-Bo Homes was meant to be a weekend getaway until the Bohnhoffs could move to Sandia Park permanently. But when Hank was appointed a judge on the State Court of Appeals in January 2016, his hectic schedule made it impractical to keep two homes. Since his commute had shifted from Santa Fe to Albuquerque, the drive was doable even from this remote location, so the Bohnhoffs sold their house in town and moved.

Retirement is still a decade away, and the Bohnhoffs are already enjoying a panoramic view of nature from their living room. Jennifer had known for years exactly what she wanted in their forever home, and when they met with Lowe, she brought along a magazine from 2000 featuring the type of Craftsman look they were after. “I expected Ted to show up with a checklist of features,” says Jennifer of Lowe. “But Ted had a sketch laid out already, and he’d nailed it!” The Bohnhoffs were impressed with Lowe’s instinct for what his clients craved. Lowe, for his part, quickly began to appreciate the challenge of developing his clients’ chosen lot. “It was the most intense project I’ve ever worked on, as far as a home site,” he says of the sloped and narrow lot.

Roomy and functional, the galley kitchen features ample cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, plenty of prep space, and an end cap wine rack that offers great storage in an easy-access location. Bar seating runs the length of the counter, illuminated by colorful, art deco–style pendant lights (below).

Indeed, it took all of 2015—the whole first building season—just to level and bring power to the site. Lowe thought they might be able to squeeze a single-level house on the lot if the house were narrow and long. But after multiple iterations, it became clear to the team that they would need a second story to accommodate the four bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and 3,450 square feet the Bohnhoffs wanted. The lot had to be widened and leveled. From the yard, Hank points out where the house is flanked on both uphill and downhill sides with double retaining walls, each 100 feet long—a point of pride that some homeowners might reserve SUCASAMAGAZINE.COM

for a billiard room with wet bar. “They imported 2,500 cubic yards of ‘clean dirt,’ which is what the house is built on,” he explains, adding that the extra time and expense were worth it to him: “I wanted to get the house built right.” Lowe, whose background is in civil engineering, lists the reinforced “post-tension slab” underneath the house among his top accomplishments. Construction didn’t start until April 2016, which posed little problem for the couple. After all, as Jennifer points out, they’d spent 14 years grilling on an empty lot. With design issues worked out during the year of site development, the home was built quickly and was move-in ready by Thanksgiving. Rather than splurging on fancy, high-end features, the Bohnhoffs sought to maximize the value of their wilderness location, its spectacular views, and “glorious sunrises,” per 88

Jennifer. Perched on the bottom end of Madera Canyon from the Sandia Peak ski area, their solidly built, comfortable home is one they’ll be able to enjoy for decades to come. “We’re not ‘pizza oven, whirlpool’ people,” says Jennifer, a schoolteacher at Edgewood Middle School, a short drive away. The wow factors most important to them were the Craftsman-style exposed beam trusses which, according to Lowe, “People don’t do anymore.” It made it that much harder to get them right. Those trusses in the tongue-and groove cathedral ceiling, the huge Pella windows, white oak floors, and custom red oak cabinets, are what impress the eye in a sweep of the circular, open ground floor. Wrapped around it are a modest master bedroom with stunning views and spacious bath, Hank’s office, which opens onto the patio, and a clever butler’s pantry that doubles as Jennifer’s office—handy for knocking off emails between stirs. The upstairs is reserved for guest rooms, plus there’s a deck with a breathtaking perspective on forest, sky, and little else besides the

lights of Santa Fe on clear nights. Family is the focus here, as evidenced by the granddaughter’s toy-filled hideout beneath the stairs, bunk beds piled with stuffed animals, and the spacious patio with its large outdoor grill. “It’s a classically elegant home that fits their personalities,” says Lowe, noting that the oak cabinets and marble countertops are places where Jennifer eschewed luxury in favor of investing in quality. One of the more remote entries in the Fall 2017 Parade of Homes, the mountain getaway won a People’s Choice Award, with its striking exterior of exposed trusses under the multiple-pitched metal roof and emerald green accents—a refreshing contrast to Albuquerque’s prevailing building styles. The 90

location, of course, adds a priceless premium, which is why the Bohnhoffs invested so much effort and time to make it possible. Foxes and wild turkeys are regular visitors to the yard. A bobcat has been spied crossing the patio, and the neighborhood birds are vocal and visible. The winding route to the home follows steep dirt roads that branch away from Highway 14, visible only as a distant ribbon of civilization. “Everyone tells me that people will think it’s nuts—until they get here,” Jennifer says of the drive. She indicates the breathtaking views from her living room. “This is why.”


For years before they ever broke ground on their home, the Bohnhoffs would drive out to their wooded lot to camp, grill out, and stargaze. Today those activities are a lot more comfortable thanks to a well-sited house that captures natural beauty from nearly every side.

F

or years, the Xeric Garden Club of Albuquerque has been educating the public about the benefits of xeric—low water use—gardening. It makes the best sense in the arid Southwest, especially when plants native to this area are used. Like many area garden clubs, the Xeric Garden Club maintained a garden—a xeric one, naturally—at the Albuquerque Garden Center on Lomas Boulevard. But just over five years ago, in response to declining bee populations around the globe, the Xeric Garden Club transformed their garden into a habitat garden, which shortly thereafter was designated a Certified Wildlife Habitat garden. Dianne Rand is a member and volunteer with the Xeric Garden Club and a passionate gardener and herbalist who helped create the habitat garden. “With the help of Virginia Burris, a longtime Albuquerque landscape designer, we created flyways for the birds, strategically placed rocks to allow lizards to escape from roadrunners, and added three water containers that would provide water for wildlife,” she explains. “Then we very strategically put in plants that would be beneficial for pollinators.” The garden’s transformation was timely. Last year, the Albuquerque City Council designated Albuquerque a “Bee City USA,” making it the first Bee City in the Southwest (there are currently over 60 others across the country).

“The Bee City program has been doing a lot of work with the New Mexico Beekeepers Association, our club, and other organizations on public awareness,” says Rand. “The goal is to create more habitats for bees in Albuquerque and encourage the city and homeowners to completely avoid using pesticides or herbicides, or to use them so with so much discretion that we’re not killing off these pollinators.”

“The important thing in a habitat garden is to have a huge variety of blooms. Native is always best, but if you use non-native plants, use ones that are going to bloom all year round, if possible.”—Dianne Rand The Xeric Garden Club’s Certified Wildlife Habitat Garden is small, maybe 20 by 20 feet. But it’s packed with bird-, bee-, and butterflyfriendly plants and offers numerous safe places for wildlife. “In any habitat garden you want to have levels, so that when birds fly down they’re not going to swoop down to a bird feeder where there’s a chance a cat might attack them,” Rand says. “So you want high trees such as redbud or Mexico olive, and then under-story trees, then shrubs, and then eventually it comes down to all the beautiful flowering native plants. The ulti-

Q+A Russell Mouser native supervisor at Osuna Nursery

What should a homeowner consider when planting a habitat garden? One thing people don’t think about very much is that birds need a protected spot. Rather than putting a bird feeder out somewhere by itself, it’s a good idea to have a tree nearby, maybe a cedar or a pinyon pine, that would offer some protection and a place where birds can fly to get away from predators. For birds in particular, plants that seed or have fruit are going to attract birds. During the warm months, low native grasses like bluestem or Karl Foerster provide a good habitat and feeding spot; some birds like to come down and feed on insects on the ground. What about hummingbirds? Tubular, red flowers are the number one thing that hummingbirds look for. Your best hummingbird plants are any of the vines, like trumpet vine or honeysuckle, especially if the flowers are red and tubular. Vines do great in the Southwest; they grow prolifically in the spring and summer. Agastache (sometimes called hyssop or hummingbird mint) is a low-growing perennial and a really good choice for attracting hummingbirds. Monarda (bee balm) and any of the red-flowered penstemons are great, too. What colors do bees prefer? Bees aren’t quite as particular as some of the other pollinators; anything with a bright, showy flower will attract bees, but they’re particularly attracted to blue and purple flowers. The two best are catnip and catmint, which are in the same family. Russian sage is a big attractor, as are blue penstemons. Bumblebees are really fond of blue mist spirea, a native plant. And butterflies? The butterfly bushes: buddleias, which have purplish-blue flower spikes. Butterflies also love red yuccas, which are really xeric. And something we’ve been trying to get more of here at Osuna Nursery is old-fashioned milkweed, which is a favorite of monarch butterflies. Butterflies tend to come in waves, each species favoring a different type of plant. Are all of these plants readily available in the Southwest? Absolutely. Most of them are natives and most are very xeric, especially Russian sage, catmint, and spirea. Probably the heaviest users of water will be the vines, and even they are just moderate water users. How can we learn more about native plants and habitat gardens? “Osuna University” is held on Saturday mornings through June. These classes and seminars are free and open to the public and often taught by guest speakers. We tackle a variety of topics, including pollinators and how to plant native plants.

mate purpose of that is so everybody can do their job pollinating things!” A row of giant sunflowers lines the wall—a must-have, according to Rand, for year-round feeding on the deadheads. In fact, a key principle of the habitat garden is that it’s not cleaned up in the fall. “A neat and clean garden doesn’t help the wildlife and the pollinators,” Rand explains. “You want all of that plant material to not only provide food for birds but also protection for lizards and toads, and for all the beneficial microbes that are going to be growing in the soil with all that leaf/mulch/plant cover. It really changes the ecosystem of the soil and the whole environment.” Finches, robins, jays, woodpeckers, roadrunners, and of course hummingbirds are regular visitors to the garden, the latter feasting on brightly colored penstemons and salvia greggii. Fennel is a host plant for black swallowtail butterflies, and garden club members love watching caterpillars enjoy its feathery fronds. “The important thing in a habitat garden is to have a huge variety of blooms,” says Rand. “Native is always best, but if you use non-native plants, use ones that are going to bloom all year round, if possible.” The Xeric Garden Club leads free tours of the habitat garden on the first Monday of every month between May and September. The first tour of 2018, led by Kathy Grassel, a board member for the New Mexico Beekeepers Association, will be held on Monday, May 7, at 1:00 pm, and will focus on bees and climate change.

SU C A S A S P R I N G 2018

n January 27, Mexico City painter and street artist Curiot Tlalpazotl unveiled a temporary interior mural he created at the invitation of nonprofit contemporary art space and museum 516 ARTS, located in downtown Albuquerque. Over 1,000 individuals attended the opening of Unity, which was painted in conjunction with 516 ARTS’ exhibition The US-Mexico Border: Place, Imagination, and Possibility. Both the exhibition and the mural will be available to view until April 14. Signed, limited edition prints of the Unity mural are available for $100 through 516 ARTS. Tlalpazotl has painted murals around the world—Germany, France, Spain, and Mexico, among other countries. “Curiot’s murals take on a life of their own,” says 516 ARTS Curator Josie Lopez. “They convey a cultural and spiritual identity that is both beautiful and fierce while communicating a sense of global interconnectedness between the human and natural worlds.” The artist came to Albuquerque directly from a two-month visit to India, where he says he was inspired by the colors, patterns, and spirituality of that culture. Indeed, Unity is a mandala that Tlalpazotl says is about “the connection of all cultures on the planet, remembering where we come from.” Located in the 25-foot-tall entrance to 516 ARTS, it showcases the artist’s trademark use of vibrant colors, flora, fauna, and human figures, as well as a filigree of metallic patterns.

“The reaction to the mural has been great,” says 516 ARTS Executive Director Suzanne Sbarge. “People watched it progress on social media and peeked through our windows while the artist was working, so there was an excitement that built up to the unveiling at the opening. I find mural projects are a really good way to engage the general public in contemporary art.

local farmers and growers markets keep the farm to table movement thriving in Northern New Mexico

f farmers markets are a living link to an area’s evolving agrarian traditions, those traditions are alive and bursting from booths in Northern New Mexico, where several vibrant venues help to offset some of the region’s natural limitations. “Supporting small-scale agriculture in Northern New Mexico is especially important given the challenges farmers in this region face,” says Amara Nash, business manager for the Santa Fe Farmers Market (santafefarmersmarket.com). “We don’t have the large swaths of land or ample water access that exist in other areas of the nation, which leaves us at risk of diminishing food access unless we can bolster these farmers and increase their opportunities for financial success.” The market, which marks its 50th anniversary this year, is a veritable cornucopia of fresh, locally grown offerings, from seasonal produce, meats, and cheeses, to organic goat milk and artisan honey, to body care products and herbal medicines. “One advantage of our small-scale agricultural traditions is that it produces an amazing variety,” says Nash. “Stuff you wouldn’t Left: Local cherries begin to appear in mid- to late summer at the Santa Fe Farmers Market, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year.

According to Gonzales, a core of about 24 farms have been consistently represented in the market since the 1990s, and around 40 producers are on hand at the season’s peak, from July to mid-October. “Customers can expect to find fresh food at its best, and get firsthand knowledge about preparation, storage, and processing,” says Gonzales. “Getting the person who grows food and the person who consumes it face to face is ground zero for education about local food.” Likewise, in downtown Albuquerque, local food producers have ample opportunity to engage consumers and showcase the fruits (and veggies) of their labor. In operation since 1996, the Downtown Growers’ Market (downtowngrowers.org) has expanded with each season and now hosts nearly 200 vendors, 70 of them food growers. Market manager Liz Skinner says, “These markets provide farmers and small business owners an outlet for their product, an outlet that brings so many residents and visitors out to engage with local producers.” An organic farmer who grows tomatoes, beans, and melons in Albuquerque’s North Valley, Minor Morgan of North Valley Organics started participating here three years ago. “Just in these past few years, we’ve seen the market really take off,” he says. “It’s a great way for us to connect with the community, show off our produce, and spread the message about the benefits of local produce.” Housed in the former blacksmith shop of the enormous and iconic Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Rail Yards complex in Albuquerque, the Rail Yards Market

Having injected a new lease on life into the old building and the surrounding Barelas community when it was established in 2014, the market hosts some 120 vendors weekly, with public attendance ranging from 3,000 to 5,000 every Sunday, according to assistant market manager Amy Jones. “Our market is different from others in size and programming,” says Jones. “And we aim for 50 percent of our market to feature local artisans, including wellness vendors, textiles, photographers, illustrators, home goods, crafts, and so much more.” One vendor is Donovan Smith, a formerly homeless 13-year-old who makes bath soaps from aloe vera and goat’s milk. Smith has been the recent subject of much publicity lately. After donating some of his earnings and thousands of soaps to charitable organizations, and becoming an advocate for child abuse victims, Smith earned a Youth Choice Award at the McDonald’s 365Black Awards Community Choice Awards. “We’re really seeing how pulling together as a community can and does change lives,” says Jones. “At the end of last year’s season, many vendors shared stories about how we helped keep a roof over their heads or how the venue allowed them to earn enough to feed their families, or how it helped turn their dreams into reality.”

garden varieties flavorful wines that pair beautifully with light spring fare

R

obin Williams quipped, “Spring is nature’s way of saying, ‘Let’s party!’” We transition from the lion of winter to the lamb on the grill, and make a beeline to farmers markets for leafy greens, spring onions, and asparagus. Seasonal foods guide us to complementary wines, and the time is nigh for those refreshingly crisp, lighter-in-weight styles. Never has there been such a rainbow of offerings. Here’s a primavera guide.

Empire Estate Dry Riesling Finger Lakes, NY ($18) (alternative to sauvignon blanc) The Finger Lakes region, south of Lake Ontario, is quietly producing inspired wines. This riesling brings flavors of lime, apricot, and ginger into a long minerallaced finish, making it a perfect pairing for the season. Note “Dry” on the label; riesling doesn’t have to be sweet.

The Eyrie Vineyards

Maison Antech Cuvée Eugénie Crémant de Limoux ($16) (alternative to cava and prosecco) One hundred and fifty years before Dom Perignon “saw stars” in his wine, bubbles were produced in southwestern France. The neighborhood is less très cher than Champagne, and so are its wines, but they are nonetheless lovely and effervescent, combining white flowers and golden-fruit flavors ideal for an aperitif or a wedding.

Eyrie Vineyards Pinot Gris Dundee Hills, OR ($22) (alternative to pinot grigio) First to plant wine grapes in the Willamette Valley, the Eyrie family’s pinot gris is aged three times longer than commonplace versions, giving a deeper, rounded, lively palate. Hexamer Spätburgunder Weissherbst Halbtrocken ($16) (alternative to rosé) Allow me to get on my wine box: Try German [and Austrian] wines! They’re among the finest wines and values anywhere. Hexamer = winery; Spätburgunder = pinot noir; Weissherbst = rosé; Halbtrocken = half-dry. Blushing peach in color, more full-bodied than sweet, here is mouthwatering acidity with aromas of almonds and spearmint. Guímaro Tinto Ribeira Sacra ($16) (alternative to pinot noir) While coastal northwestern Spain is famous for white albarino, the nearby mountainous region of Ribeira Sacra gives lushly fruited, pleasurable, spicy red wines from the mencia grape, pairing easily with grilled foods, particularly chorizo or lamb. My best recommendation is to find good independent wine shops, start conversations with knowledgeable clerks, and let the bounty of spring awaken your taste buds.

Above: The Eyrie Vineyards’ 2015 Oregon pinot gris is a full-bodied white that pairs surprisingly well with spicy Indian and Thai dishes. Below: Antech’s “Cuvée Eugénie” Crémant de Limoux is a crisp, effervescent accompaniment to the seafood platter at Santa Fe’s Bouche, where oysters, jumbo prawns, and crab claws are served with a variety of house-made sauces.

Remodelista: The Organized Home, by Julie Carlson and Margot Guralnick, Artisan, hardcover, $18

A

s the dust from winter clears, it’s time to start thinking about a deep spring clean to declutter and refresh your interiors with new trends and less chaos. It’s no secret that an organized home makes life a little less stressful—but actually keeping it that way can be a challenge. In their new book, Remodelista: The Organized Home, authors Julie Carlson and Margot Guralnick give readers helpful insight on how to minimalize and declutter while still keeping homes comfortable and stylish. The keys, say the authors, are to buy fewer, but better things; utilize things you already have (but forgot about); and take your ideas from experts like interior designers, hoteliers, and shopkeepers. Above all, Carlson and Guralnick remind readers to relax and focus on keeping things homey. “Too much enforced order is uninviting for occupants and guests alike; rooms are for living,” they explain. The book is divided into several informative chapters based on some of the most important spaces in a home: the entryway, the kitchen, bathrooms, closets, and more. In each chapter, Carlson and Guralnick include a section called “Steal This Look”, which features interior spaces in several different styles to help inspire 106

When it comes to organization, authors Julie Carlson and Margot Guralnick believe in quality over quantity and putting everything in its own place. A closet uses wire and cloth bins for storage (above), while an ultra-organized kitchen’s shelves (below) are lined with neat containers.

The chapters that follow dig into specific details on tackling organization in each room— from creating a streamlined entryway, to thinking like a foodie in the kitchen. Even further, the book features beautiful photography as an

readers to start their own overhaul. To help get you thinking like an expert, the authors also interview professionals—a kindergarten teacher, a food editor, a designer, a veteran hotelier, and others—for their unique advice and opinions on keeping things effortlessly organized. The book’s introduction begins by briefly explaining 12 universal storage tactics, as well as daily rituals that will help readers maintain a sense of calm in the home. This applies to every home, the authors stress, no matter the size or style. “You don’t need cavernous closets and built-in cabinetry to have an orderly household,” they note. “But you do need a place for everything.”

example of each organized space—a few photos are numbered to highlight tips such as using trays to frame objects, what to use as storage containers, and hacks for using and repurposing items that you probably already own. The best part about this book is that the authors keep everything simple, straightforward, and realistic—even including tips and tricks for apartments, which makes it a great read even for students in dorms or those just starting out in a place of their own. If simply flipping through the pages of this visual manual doesn’t immediately inspire, diving into each chapter certainly will (trust me, I tried it!).

’ve studied birds from the Arctic to the tropics most of my life, but one species of songbird I’ve always found fascinating is the shrike. Although classified as a songbird, the shrike seems more to me like a hawk. This gray and black, 10-inch bird not only voraciously feeds on insects, but also attacks mice, lizards, and even other birds. The shrike has a powerful hooked beak with which it kills its prey, making it our only predatory songbird. Unlike most raptors, however, shrikes do not have powerful feet to hold their prey while eating. Instead, they’ve developed a unique method of skinning and holding their food: they impale it on a thorn or the barb of a fence, thereby earning the name “butcher bird.” You’re most likely to see shrikes on power lines, fences, or the tops of tall bushes where they can survey open country in search of food. Once a shrike spots prey, it will fly low to the ground, giving you a peek at its white wing patches and long black tail. Upon catching prey, the shrike will twist and shake the prey until it’s dead and will then take it to a nearby thorn bush or barbed fence to skin and eat. Shrikes are easily confused with mockingbirds, but careful observation reveals a black mask that runs from the back of the head to the black hooked beak, giving them the appearance of crafty, adorable bandits. There are only two shrike species in North America, the loggerhead and the larger North-

ern, but only the loggerhead is found in New Mexico. The male and female are identical in size and color and are year-round residents. They mate in early spring, building a stick nest in thick brush and raising four to six young. Like all songbirds, shrikes have a song, but it’s a strident, harsh shriek. If you guessed that’s where the shrike derives its name, you’d be right. As you walk through the open brushlands of New Mexico, keep on the lookout for small animal skins wrapped around thorns or barbed wire. You’ll know you’re in the vicinity of the shrike, a.k.a. the butcher bird— America’s hunting songbird.

Farm Fresh Journey: Santa Fe Farmers Market Cookbook, by Douglas Merriam and Lesley S. King, Farm Fresh Publishing, hardcover, $45

I

n his book Farm Fresh Journey: Santa Fe Farmers Market Cookbook, food, travel, and lifestyle photographer Douglas Merriam recounts the story of a day he was shopping, per usual, at the Santa Fe Farmers Market—“the Market,” to regulars. Handing over cash for some tomatoes, Merriam noticed the farmer’s calloused, dirty hands. “I saw, really saw, that those were the very same hands that planted the seeds of the tomatoes I was holding,” says Merriam, who at that moment truly appreciated the monumental effort and good luck required to bring just one tomato to market. “By shopping at the Market,” he continues, “I became part of a personal connection linking the farmer, his land, the produce, and me.” Filled with over gorgeous 200 photographs taken by Merriam and 100 recipes using ingredients commonly found at the Market, Farm Fresh Journey was several years in the making, and is an homage to those who work the land. It is indeed a journey through time, progressing languidly through the four seasons, with thoughtful “seasonal narratives” by Lesley S. King weaving through the chapters. The book’s journey begins in spring, when farmers are filled with equal amounts of excitement and nervousness about the crops they are about to plant. We meet some of these farmers and be-

SU C A S A S P R I N G 2018

gin to appreciate the impossibly difficult and fickle nature of farming. “A farmer understands and works with the things he can accept,” says the author. “The things that can’t be controlled are harder to accept.” He recalls the day one farmer returned from Market to find his entire crop wiped out by hail. Merriam and others helped him replant in the middle of the season; later, however, Merriam learned that grasshoppers had devoured the growing plants. “All farming is tough,” he says, “but small-scale farming is the toughest.” The Santa Fe Farmers Market is a weekly market held year-round (indoors during the late fall and winter months), but its produce is seasonal. The Spring chapter of Farm Fresh Journey includes many ingredients available at the Market at that time—asparagus for an omelet with Swiss chard, for example, and tender young carrots perfect with thyme and a honey glaze. Many of the original recipes, supplied by Market vendors and farmers, consisted merely of a few scribbled ingredients and no measurements. Merriam and his wife produced and refined each recipe into a printable (and photogenic!) format; the reader enjoys the results of their laborious efforts. For Merriam, it was a labor of love, and so should it be, he believes, for you. “Take your time and get to know the food,” he says. “Enjoying great food is a final destination of the journey.”—Amy Gross

classic elegance in Los Ranchos

Inspired by the churches and classic architecture of old New Mexico, this stunning compound, Casas de los Santos, was built by homebuilder H.L. Cleff and is sited on 1.25 acres surrounded by shady trees and beautiful gardens. The main house—reminiscent of the historic Alvarado Hotel—offers four luxurious bedrooms and a main living area with doors that lead out to English gardens. Two casitas on the property showcase classic Southwestern style with rustic elements throughout, as well as homey amenities such as a kitchenette, fireplace, and private patio. Outside, serenity abounds in the gated courtyard complete with relaxing water features.

Adios

Plein air artists David and Cindy Welch don’t have to go far to find inspiration for their paintings; their home in the North Valley is beautifully and colorfully landscaped. It lacked a viable walking path, however, so the couple turned to Hunter Ten Broeck of WaterWise Landscapes Incorporated to clean up, match, and repair the uneven flagstone walkway, making it safer as well as attractive. “When the Albuquerque Garden Tour asked for suggestions for the 2018 tour, we met again and made additional upgrades to create a walkable path completely around the house,” says Ten Broeck. The Welches’ garden will be one of several on the 2018 Parade of Gardens tour on June 16, and one of three gardens on the tour that Ten Broeck has worked on. Their studio will be open to visit, and the artists will be on hand themselves, painting en plein air the beautiful landscape they have created in their own backyard.
