Shaw Architecture is an architectural design studio, located in Santa Fe, New Mexico since 1997. We consult on a variety of projects, bringing the same passion and principles to each. And we work every day to make the process of creation as rewarding as the finished product itself.

Our design philosophy is founded on an appreciation for context and the amazing dance of light and shadow. We’ve been exploring the essence of vernacular Northern New Mexico; and in the process, discovered the elemental clarity unique to this place. The ‘mud’ wall has afforded us a rich palette to work with. Our guiding principal is to visit issues of place, presence, and the movement of life for every project.

Today, we’re excited to be learning how to build green. Recent projects have included a residence heated with solar panels, and another detailed to comply with Build Green New Mexico ‘Gold’ certification standards. We are a member of the U.S. Green Building Council.
Our projects have received award recognition from the Santa Fe American Institute of Architects, and the Santa Fe Area Homebuilders Association.
