Visitors are drawn to the Taos Ski Valley to experience rich spiritual traditions, a thriving artisan scene, and take in the raw natural beauty of Taos. Founded more than 60 years ago, the awe-inspiring environment to the area is home to The Blake Residences, a residential complex of 24 private homes located in the heart of the ski village.

It all starts as you enter the site, where the custom coordinated exterior wood light poles and site lighting sets the scene.  Combining natural elements with the new building, the site creates a gathering point around the new ice-skating rink. It meanders through the village taking guests to local shopping, inviting them to taste distinctive cuisine and visit the mountain market.

BG worked with architectural partners Studio Southwest from Albuquerque and Hart Howerton from New York to provide both interior and exterior lighting design for the 74,192 square foot building. One, two, and three-bedroom condos at The Blake Residences come fully furnished and equipped for vacation rentals. They include high end kitchens, and 24-hour service from on-call Hausmesiters to make guests visits extra special. The use of adjustable recessed lighting in each home was designed to highlight fireplaces, tables, and drapery to create focal points and highlight the vibrant southwestern design elements. The lighting uses a warm color temperature throughout to complement the warm natural tones.
