The Tom Ford Ranch looks like something out of a sci-fi flick, one in which the audience is treated to a futuristic view of what a once common landscape now looks like. In this case, that landscape is just outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico. In place of wooden houses and metal fences, the Tom Ford Ranch introduces clean minimalist lines and smooth fortress-like walls that are as stylish as the designer's clothing.

Designed by famed Japanese architect Tadao Ando, the Tom Ford Ranch plays on the sweeping surroundings and strong light to great effect. It is no surprise that it is a work of art since Ford expresses, "New Mexico has always been a very spiritual place for me, even before I realised I was particularly spiritual."
