BERNSTEIN RESIDENCE

The Bernstein Residence renovation included the remodel and addition to a 1930’s Pueblo Revival house in Albuquerque’s North Valley.  The original two story house was built in 1934 for a University of New Mexico, anthropology professor.  It was later added onto in 1943.  Built with traditional adobe construction, the house was an excellent example of the Pueblo Revival Style, reminiscent of the late New Mexico architect, John Gaw Meem.  Care was taken to respect the existing adobe structure. The ddition was constructed with new adobe bricks, wood vigas and traditional Pueblo Revival detailing.  The new addition included a kitchen / dining / family room wing, connected to a new garage / utility wing with a second floor guest quarters.  The house addition increased thesquare footage from 1,844 to 3,500 square feet, creating a rambling adobe home with an entry courtyard and back yard porch.
