Fresh And Healthy

With a design inspired by the natural beauty around it, this welcoming, green, contemporary home incorporates wood, metal and glass together with outstanding care and craftsmanship. Expansive windows and 11-foot-tall sliding glass doors frame stunning vistas including the Ortiz Mountains, Sandia Peak, the Sangre de Cristos and of course world-class sunsets. The beloved Santa Fe landscape informed the home’s interior color scheme. Multiple shades of glass tile and blue kitchen countertops reference the ever-changing hues in the New Mexico skies. The home’s public areas are light and airy, while the private ones are finished in warm gray shades. Built for entertaining, the home features multiple indoor and outdoor spaces to easily accommodate both large events and intimate gatherings. Durable, site-appropriate plants create privacy and enhance views around the home.

About the Builder

Green Star Builders creates innovative homes, custom architectural metal details and furniture that beautifully support modern life. They offer full inhouse design and build services. However, they also enjoy collaborating with outside talent, such as the ever-playful design whiz Stephen Beili, who designed this year’s Parade entry. The team believes that a home should bring people happiness in small ways, every day.
