Scholl Residence designed by Studio B Architects
During the 1950s and ’60s, a number of modernist architects and designers including Mies van der Rohe, Richard Neutra, and Charles and Ray Eames were commissioned to build model homes that were inexpensive and efficient as part of an architectural experiment. The resulting rectilinear homes, which were mostly located in California, came to be known as the Case Study Houses. The contemporary Scholl Residence designed by Studio B Architects in Aspen, Colorado, further expands on the notions of low cost and efficient living found in Case Study homes but applies it to a modern day setting.
Built amid mountains, the two-story box-shaped house had to be constructed on limited space and the hilly terrain made the drainage difficult. Important details and self-sufficient innovations were included in into the compact structure. Materials such as zinc panels, sandblasted concrete, aluminum windows, and tempered glass railings are used on the exterior while polished wood and marble floors are used throughout the interior.
