East Village Stadium Masterplan in San Diego by DBRDS

Wednesday, April 6th, 2011

Lately, for various reasons, there has been constant instability and uncertainty that has impeded generating a sporting culture in San Diego where support for the home team is part of the urban and social fabric of the city. The idea of the San Diego Chargers leaving to another location (most possibly LA) created a somber feeling amongst their fans. With that thought, DBRDS wanted to explore an architectural solution for a new stadium downtown that would capture the imagination of the City, the fans & the Chargers to be inspired to want to stay & forever belong in San Diego… to become an iconic fabric of people’s in this great City.

Scholl Residence in Aspen, Colorado by Studio B Architects

Wednesday, April 6th, 2011

The Scholl Residence expands on the ‘Case Study’ series of the 1950’s. The steep site possessed challenges with drainage, topography, a small footprint, restrictive easements and was required to address very limiting neighborhood design review standards. Contextually, the area was developed in the 1960’s and surrounding residents were quite resistant to the architectural direction. Although the neighborhood is one of transition, this was the greatest challenge in realizing the project.

Scholl Residence

  • Architects: Studio B Architects
  • Project: Scholl Residence
  • Location: Aspen, Colorado
  • Type of Project: Residential
  • Project Completion Date: October 2007
  • Primary Materials Used: zinc, concrete, & glass
  • Size of Building: 6,000 SF
  • Size of Site: 0.25 acres
  • Cost of Construction: Undisclosed
  • Photographers: Aspen Architectural Photography
  • Software: Architectural Desktop, 3ds max for renderings (not shown)
  • Scope of Work: A small steeply sloping site provided an opportunity to explore the 1950’s ‘case study’ series within a very restrictive homeowners association.
