Allegretti Architects, Santa Fe, New Mexico
Rawhide Compound is a group of industrial buildings in the Turquoise Trail Business Park designed by Allegretti Architects in Santa Fe, NM. Large warehouse and fabrication spaces are suffused in daylight from translucent roof panels. High lift overhead doors and exhaust ventilators allow versatile access for vehicles. All spaces are protected with fire alarm and sprinkler system. Elements of site design include raised loading docks and circulation for 18-wheel trucks. Sites are landscaped with honey locust trees and drought-resistant perennials. The energy-conserving building envelopes help to reduce operating costs. Rainwater is captured from roof surfaces and is used for landscape irrigation.
The architect gave each building is given its own individuality with a unique façade. The architectural treatments recall the Western movie sets which are common in the area.
