La Plazuela Restaurant at La Fonda on the Plaza Receives Award

Posted by on May 11, 2012 in Historic Preservation, Hospitality, News | No Comments

“Congratulations” to our Client, La Fonda on the Plaza for receiving the State of New Mexico Historic Preservation Division’s 2012 Architectural Heritage Award for the renovation of La Plazuela restaurant!  The vision of the hotel’s leadership and management to renovate the restaurant was achieved by engaging in a holistic design process involving a thorough research initiative on the history of the original building (and its subsequent expansions) and its interior architecture.  Meticulous planning and coordination were both so crucial as the Client did not want to place a strain on the day-to-day operations and, most importantly, did not want to cause any significant inconvenience on their guests during construction. 

It was a privilege to work with everyone at the historic La Fonda on the Plaza throughout the entire term of the project.  We look forward to joining representatives of the Hotel at the official awards ceremony on Friday, May 18th which is being held at the Scottish Rite Center, another historic icon in downtown Santa Fe.
