The Santa Fe
Opera Pavilion
Santa Fe, NM
11,500 SF

Conceived in 2003, MAD designed the dining hall known as The Cantina at The Santa Fe Opera. An 8,000 sf area accommodates a new kitchen and a covered seating area designated for approximately 200 people. Special attention to the surrounding desert landscape and existing buildings influenced the design of the tensile structure. Executed in 2008 under a Master Plan by H3 Architecture, this project became a key component of the Ranch area of the property.
