Los Poblanos in New Mexico


Los Poblanos in New Mexico

May 26, 2013

Off the beaten path in Los Ranchos (a small town near Albuquerque), Los Poblanos Historic Inn was designed by John Gaw Meem, long considered New Mexico’s most important architect and now recognized internationally for his contribution to 20th century architecture. The inn, recently remodeled by Moule & Polyzoides Architects and Urbanists, sits on a 25-acre historic property, and includes formal gardens, lavender fields, a cultural center, a store, and an organic farm.

All meals feature fresh ingredients from the farm, and the amenities in the guest rooms are made from the lavender grown on the farm. Guest rooms come in two styles; New Mexican Territorial Revival and agricultural/dairy buildings (tin roofs and white stucco); both originating in the 1930s and decorated with handcrafted furniture and fixtures from WPA craftsmen of the Great Depression and local craftspeople. Los Poblanos is a favorite with architects and designers, who appreciate the authenticity of the inn, where “nothing is copied from anywhere else.” Go to Los Poblanos for more information.
