Located in northern New Mexico, this home sits at the juncture of the flat bottom-land of the Tesuque River and a steeply-rising mesa to the east. This juncture is the Acequia Madre de Tesuque, one of the oldest natural drainage systems in North America. The Acequia runs through the valley, managed along historic principles of shared irrigation established in the early 18th century. The architecture of the house is integrated into the structure of the Acequia and framed by the retaining wall backed up to the mesa.
