Palace of the Governors Profiled in Preservation Magazine

The Palace of the Governors, constructed in 1610, is the oldest public building in the United States. Facing the beloved plaza in Santa Fe, the building was territorial capitol until 1909 when it was transformed into the Museum of New Mexico. In 2017, Atkin Olshin Schade Architects was commissioned to lead a long-term interior preservation project that will include the preservation of interior finishes and a complete replacement of building systems, while preparing the building for new interpretation as the largest and most significant artifact in the collections of the New Mexico History Museum. Construction work will begin later this year with the installation of new mechanical systems. The history of this landmark and the larger goals of our project are profiled in an article in the Winter 2018 issue of Preservation Magazine.
