The Lofts-Cerrillos Road
PRAXIS Architects stepped forward in 2000 to complete the design of this groundbreaking live/work community. Buildings 400, 1000 and 1100 owe their cutting-edge, new-millennium styling to PRAXIS’s staff of young architects and draftsmen. Playfully-styled buildings casually arranged in a beautifully-landscaped campus defy the usual expectation of office park blandness.

“I wanted lots of light in the condo and a floating staircase between the second floor and the loft so that the light would not be blocked. Praxis conceived floating wooden steps held together with exceptionally long screws. It looks like a large harp. Several years later I saw that Brad Cloepfil had used the same approach with the first floor stairs in his redesign of the Museum of Art and Design in NYC in 2008.”
