San Juan Pueblo
Single-Family Rental Housing
Tribal Housing Authority
Designed to pay homage to one of the oldest housing types in North America, Tsigo Bugeh Village (pronounced SEE-go BOO-gey) is a complex of 40 townhouses arranged around two plazas at San Juan Pueblo, a Native American reservation located a little more than 30 miles (48.3 kilometers) north of Santa Fe, New Mexico. The project’s layout and massing were inspired by the original buildings at the pueblo—one of the oldest continuously occupied places in North America. Funded primarily through Low-Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTCs) and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Native American Housing Assistance and Self-Determination Act of 1996 (NAHASDA), Tsigo Bugeh provides residences primarily to members of the San Juan tribe, non-tribal members are allowed in only if living with a tribal member. The project comprises both market-rate housing and housing for those earning between 40 and 60 percent of the area median income.
