Manderfield on Canyon Road

The Manderfield School, a prominent historic project is located in the heart of the Santa Fe arts community at 1150 Canyon Road. The major renovation was of the original structure, along with new construction to round out the compound. The original school has been converted into 5 residential condos, all with unique character and a strong preservation of the initial integrity of the historical structure.

With the creative minds at Architectural Alliance, and the construction brilliance of Prull Custom Builders, every effort has been made to retain and highlight the original designs of John Gaw Meem. Each condo offers expansive interior & exterior living space. In addition, each unit provides private access and courtyards, covered parking and an abundance of natural light.

Complimenting the rehabilitation of the original 1927 structure, 3 new construction detached residential casitas have been completed, each with private garage and outdoor living space, along with all of the conveniences and charm of Santa Fe living prominently located on historic Canyon Road.

JOHN GAW MEEM IV
John Gaw Meem IV(November 17, 1894 – August 4, 1983) was an American architect based in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He originally designed Manderfield School. He is best known for his instrumental role in the development and popularization of the Pueblo Revival Style and as a proponent of architectural Regionalism in the face of international modernism. Meem is regarded as one of the most important and influential architects to have worked in New Mexico.

CANYON ROAD
Canyon Road is the celebrated Santa Fe art district in Northern New Mexico. Hundreds of art galleries, studios, and venues, exhibit a wide range of art; ranging from antiquities, to traditional, modern, Hispanic, Native American and regional contemporary art, to international folk art and international contemporary art.

Canyon Road had its beginnings as a residential neighborhood. Houses built in the Pueblo Revival style, in accordance with the local Hispanic and Pueblo culture, were constructed using adobe walls & courtyards, and were typically compounds for large or extended families.

As a long, narrow, winding road that ends at the feet of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, artists have been drawn to Canyon Road, gradually making it a hub for the subculture. Over the years, as Santa Fe has grown and become more of a tourist destination, Canyon Road is known throughout the world for its voluminous collection of art in all forms.

One of the most famous events that annually occur on this famous road is the Christmas Eve Faralito Walk. As the sun begins to set on Christmas Eve, locals and tourists alike, gather on the street that has been lined with “faralitos”; small paper bags elegantly lit with candles. Carols and hot cider, along with the childhood thrill of Christmas, fill the streets through the night.
