“Creativity is just connecting things.  When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something.  It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things. ”

– Steve Jobs


A Santa Fe Architecture Firm

For more than twenty years, Allegretti Architects has created residential and commercial designs suited to the special traditions and unique climate of  northern New Mexico.  Architecture is a mufti-disciplined undertaking.  As accomplished Santa Fe architects, we believe that a range of tools are necessary to achieve the best results.  Our firm applies expertise across several specialties.  These include artistic talent, construction knowledge, legal proficiency, engineering skills and experience in sustainable and solar technologies.  When all of these capabilities are combined and balanced, the result is elegance and artistry.

“We believe that by accepting the challenge of design, we accept the responsibility to ask the right questions.  We believe that the quality of where we live affects the quality of how we live.”

New Mexico Architecture

“In those early days, when we first started, the effort was to make these buildings as closely imitative as possible of the prototypes.  But then as time went on, and sort of a new outlook on architecture was developing all over the world, not only here,  I became very conscious of the fact that there was a possibility of expressing these forms in a way that wasn’t completely imitative yet would suggest the new architecture and would bend in with ours rather than be exactly like it. ”
