Pueblo Contemporary

After a trip to the Santa Fe Parade of Homes, The Fort was inspired to bring some of the Northern New Mexico elegance and style to Southern New Mexico. With canted double framed exterior walls, cedar lintels, timber accents, and bronze windows make this design feel like a classic Pueblo home. The wood tile flooring, contemporary cabinets, quartz countertops, and modern finishes make this home feel like a recently remodeled showpiece that brings the past into the present.


Texas Hill Country

Transport yourself to South Central Texas in this fun interpretation of Austin’s current architectural phenomenon. By increasing the roof pitch, maximizing our porch area, and adding gorgeous exterior Texas stone accents, The Fort creates our own version of this trendy design. By blending rustic components with clean lines and a modern color palette, we make this home warm and cozy, but bold and brash. Enjoy New Mexico sunsets and mountain views from the endless porch spaces in this Texas inspiration.



Southern New Mexico flair in a nutshell. The Fort’s version of this Las Cruce's gold standard takes an old school Pueblo design and incorporates clean lines, curved features, natural materials, and colorful accents. The large open spaces pop with the Southwest colors, textures, patterns, and finishes, while the cedar accents abound, especially outside at the entry, above windows, and on all porches. The kiva fireplaces and arches make this a truly warm place to call home as you blend into our Southwest countryside.

New Mexico Contemporary

The Fort’s game-changing contemporary design style blends classic New Mexican architecture with a big-city modern style. Taking advantage of all the natural light possible drives the exterior design with clearstory windows above all operable windows and large sliding glass door systems. Our use of storefront glass at select design areas anchors our contemporary concept. The light, bright, interior palette makes this house feel open and airy, while the dark, natural accents keep it warm and inviting to everyone who steps foot inside. Enjoy Las Cruces' life, inside and out, in this true game-changer.


Modern Mediterreanean

Where Traditional Tuscan emphasized old-world elegance, The Fort’s version of Modern Mediterranean incorporates a softer, more colorful, modern finish. A perfect combination of a pitched roof with classic roof tile and Southwestern flat roof make this a Mediterranean marvel. Light colors, bright accent walls, and contemporary cabinets and countertops brighten up space and soften the classic interior finish. Turn the Old into the New with your own personal touches in this family friendly design.

Pueblo Territorial

The Fort is one of the last builders in town to continue to design this unique genre. Double framed walls, classic windows, cedar patios, brick parapets, and traditional stucco colors adorn the exterior of our version. Inside you can marvel at the real brick floors, distressed cabinets, wood stove, and historically accurate finishes. Enjoy every day in this earthy, rustic beauty that feels grounded in a bygone era.


Modern Industrial

The Fort has begun dabbling into this extremely popular design style by taking a minimalist approach and adorning with industrial touches. A contemporary exterior is broken up by clever pitched roof concepts. Natural wood and stone elements accent the exterior elevation. Inside a clever blend of contemporary cabinets and countertops play off the industrial lighting, reclaimed wood, open shelving, exposed ductwork, and concrete finishes. Live the life of luxury in this industrial abode.
