Our Story

About Us - Molecule Design
Molecule Design was launched in September 2010 at 1226 Flagman Way in the lively Baca Railyard District, Santa Fe NM. Adriana Siso founded her contemporary design store in 2002 in a previous location in Santa Fe.  With a background in Fine Arts and retail, Adriana has been an innovator, bringing to the Santa Fe area, original and unique industrial design products by some of the most creative contemporary design firms in the world. Through the Art Meets Design series, Molecule also has supported the work of New Mexico contemporary artists, designers and fabricators.
The spaceAdriana Siso conceptualized and built her contemporary design store in Santa Fe, NM, completed in the fall of 2010. It was the first ISO Shipping Container building in Santa Fe which housed her retail store. The building was recently sold in June 2022.
Constructed out of 11 High-Cube, 40' Grade A (recycled) freight ISO containers, and spray-foam insulated between the exterior container wall and the Galvalume sheeting. Frosted polycarbonate panels were used for daylighting and luminosity and to close the atrium area that ties the 2 rows of containers. An energy efficient cooling and heating system as well as LED reflectors add to energy conservation. A water catchment system collects water for landscape irrigation. Zero wood was used on the project. Container wall cutouts were re-used for building skirts. A local engineer oversaw the structural and foundation. Containers are stacked to form 2 floors accessed by stairs and a small commercial elevator. Foundation is concrete piers and slab.  
Sustainability is an important area of interest and ongoing exploration for Molecule, which also offers product lines with a focus on conservation and ecological stewardship.
