Local Santa Fe Pros:

We work closely with a preferred group of outsourced local professionals for structural and civil engineering, energy performance modeling, as well as interior design, space planning and finish specification.  Our commitment is in creating one-of-a-kind exquisite homes suited to your preferences and budget that will out-perform typical custom homes in terms of efficiency, comfort and durability.

Integrated Design – Build Approach:

Our approach is one of ‘integrated design’.  That is, we work collaboratively with all key team members in Santa Fe, including project owners, designers, architects, engineers, realtors, construction managers and trades people to assure the design of your home is cost effective, efficient and attains the feel and quality you have come to expect in high-end residential custom home building, while simultaneously achieving the highest level of sustainability and environmental consideration.

We put our attention to detailing the architectural plans in such a way as to assure ultra high performance in energy and water efficiency is built into the bones of the house.  Site orientation, solar gain and summer shading, views and exceptional insulation techniques are cornerstones of the Palo Santo Designs approach.  Layered upon this firm foundation, the canvas is yours to express your own unique aspirations for a luxurious lifestyle.  We will guide you in the selection of finishes, fixtures, appliances and custom details that express your unique style.

Our aim is to inform both the design and construction process, assuring the unique needs of each owner are met and that the quality of the project is of the highest in terms of durability, performance and aesthetics. Our homes have received multiple awards for their superior craftsmanship and exemplary environmental performance.
