Kebony North America supplied materials for the construction of this New Mexico residence.
A custom modern home sitting atop a bluff overlooking New Mexico’s 85-mile-long Animas Valley recently completed construction, according to architect Jim Rothwell, who designed the project.
“After taking the time to understand and appreciate the power of the views, the clients decided on a strong yet simple form for the massing,” Rothwell said. “Which was essentially a direct response to the views, all coupled with a site-driven expression of natural materials.”
Kebony was specifically chosen for its natural wood texture and rich brown color that will naturally develop a silver-grey patina, minimizing maintenance without further use of finish treatment.
“The idea was strength in form, calm in approach, and natural in finish,” Rothwell said.
