Warm air rises and cool air sinks. Upper storeys receive heat not only from windows and deck doorways, but from warm air rising up from the floors below. This combination makes rooms, apartments and offices warmer on the second floor than rooms on the first floor. That means it also takes more power – more fans and more air-conditioning to cool upper floor rooms.
We’re pretty excited to talk about the completion of one of our most recent projects. Meow Wolf Santa Fe has garnered national acclaim for it’s launch more than a year ago and draws visitors and locals alike to wonder and explore the “Immersive Experience”. Rooms and artist installations change our views of design and challenge perspective of our world.
Retractable awnings are in great demand from coast to coast for the simple reason that they offer flexibility. Based on the design of a straight slope covering, the awning protects the width of a doorway or window and extends out to block the area below from the heat of the sun or shield in the rain. Blocking direct sunlight from windows and doors reduces the volume of heat transmitted to the interior and actually reduces energy cooling costs, particularly during the hottest part of the day.
This beautiful home sits on a large open property under the beautiful New Mexico skies. Views from nearly every room in the house of the mountains, hills, the wide roll of land dotted with juniper, sage and cholla are simply spectacular.
Annette made your awnings, or very probably so. And if not, she surely made your shade sails, and today she’s working on some Santa Fe Patio Wind and Solar Screens™ in our signature Buffalo color for a half dozen or so orders. They are cutting the fabric on a huge table adjacent to Annette and lining up the orders in great rolls on the long table by her left elbow.
Twenty years ago in 1994, when he was still a young whippersnapper, Jeff Maul found himself with little money in his pocket, the single parent of 2 children and no immediately visible means of support. So he started Santa Fe Awning. Working out of his own house, he did everything. He sewed in the living room, completed design work and drafted proposals at the kitchen table, and did painting and welding steel on the back patio.
