Located in Ranchos de Taos near the Country Club Golf Course, the 3-acre site for the Gastellum family home is long and thin, leaving only a narrow strip upon which to build. Gastellum unfurls its length along the high-desert site, making the most of both the property and the views. Its striking silhouette accentuates the mesa horizon before the mountains at dusk as expanses of glass punctuate Gastellum's thick adobe walls, allowing the sun to penetrate every room in the home.
