OUR ENVIRONMENTS can enhance or detract from the way we interact with our world. Built is committed to designing beautiful, meaningful, provocative spaces that honor and elevate how people engage with each other, connect with nature and find peace and tranquility amid the rapid pace and growing demands of modern life.

Built is redefining Santa Fe interiors with a clean, modern aesthetic characterized by an accessible, unpretentious approach to living that evokes feeling and warmth by celebrating family and friends, culture and contrast, patina and texture, art and light. We believe in effortless classics with enduring style that outlive trends and improve with age. 

To this end, we utilize only the highest quality materials and exceptional craftsmanship. We employ local craftspeople and artisans when possible; we believe that age-old traditions add depth, dimension and character to your design. We are meticulous in our approach and focus on details to ensure that you get only the best results, every time. 

BUILT WAS FOUNDED in 2009 by Cara Scarola, a Santa Fe interior designer who has spent the past ten years working on a wide range of residential and commercial projects throughout the country. With a Bachelor of Fine Art from Lewis and Clark College and a Master of Interior Architecture from the University of Oregon, Cara has the eye of a designer, architect and artist. She brings her comprehensive understanding  of composition, light, proportion, balance, color and style to every project along with meticulous attention to detail. Her work is heavily influenced by her travels throughout Europe, South America and Asia, and inspired by her family, including her two young children and a dog named Duncan.
