State of New Mexico Taxation and Revenue Department MVD Field Office
2546 Camino Entrada, Santa Fe

This 14,350 SF customer service/office facility is located west of Cerrillos Road. The waiting area is an inviting open space flooded with natural daylight, served by staff from modularized workstations affording both privacy for transactions and visual observation. The lobby ceiling supports a prominent sculpture by Santa Fe artist Gino Miles’.

“This sculpture is an abstract representation of the earliest La Bajada Road incorporating the up and down hairpin turns of this famous stretch of old dirt road, which was the original Route 66 connecting Santa Fe and Albuquerque.” This work synthesizes the past and the present of New Mexico, connecting all its people to the culture that built this great state. Funded by the Art in Public Places Program, New Mexico Arts, and the NM Department of Cultural Affairs.

The office spaces incorporate flexible private and open office furniture systems. Sub-floor mechanical, electrical, and data allow for reconfiguration of workspaces and service connectivity. The design implemented acoustic treatment to reduce noise reverberation within the public spaces. Site developments secure customer & staff parking with security cameras and lighting. Customer parking is equipped with a commercial vehicle drive lane adjacent to the building allowing for employees to visually inspect vehicles before issuing licenses.


New Mexico Department of Game & Fish

Our small architecture firm proudly partnered with the New Mexico Department of Game & Fish to create a comprehensive solution for their evolving needs. Programming involved consolidating the department’s nine divisions spread across three sites into a Master Plan for their sprawling 160-acre site. A 38,400 square-foot mass-timber Headquarters facility includes public-facing spaces for game and fishing license sales, offices for the Game and Fish Secretary and staff, cutting-edge computer facilities, and vital biology laboratory space.

We incorporated a bid alternate — a laboratory designed to cater to the Conservation, Fisheries, and Game Divisions. Supported by Federal funding, this Biology Lab plays a crucial role in analyzing, monitoring, documenting, and controlling disease within wildlife and fisheries populations. Our work for the New Mexico Game and Fish demonstrates our commitment to enhancing both functionality and sustainability in our architectural projects.
