Spears Architects

1334 Pacheco Street, Santa Fe, New Mexico 87505


Spears Architects was established in 1981 as a design firm focusing on commercial / institutional facilities, residential design, urban design, landscape architecture, and historic preservation. We continue to develop these areas of expertise and to blend them in many projects, creating a body of work architecturally rich and sensitive to its environment. Through this work, the firm has established an excellent record of responsiveness to client needs, budget management, and timely performance of contract obligations.

Our involvement in over 40 institutional projects has given us an understanding of the technical challenges created by tight budget constraints, complex project programs and the economic and functional implications of project schedules. We are particularly proud of our ability to work with client “communities”, whether they be for office, school, church, or museum projects. Drawing from our experience with government and institutional projects, we recognize the sensitivity required to address the important needs of clients and are aware of the foresight necessary for successful design and construction.

The firm is directed by Beverley Spears, FAIA, architect and landscape architect. Our staff of five includes three architects, one intern architect, and the office manager. We enjoy the diversity and problem-solving nature of our work. Our designs are simple, yet elegant. We have won more design awards from the American Institute of Architects in the past ten years than any other Santa Fe firm.
