Scholl Residence in Aspen, Colorado by Studio B Architects

 
April 6th, 2011 by Sumit Singhal

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.

The clients dwell between Miami and Aspen and are avid collectors of videography and photography. They requested a solution and an architecture that would exhibit their expanding and revolving collection. The exterior is composed of custom zinc panels, sand-blasted concrete, aluminum window/door glazing system and tempered glass railings. The interiors consist of darkened oak flooring, cantilevered pickled oak stairs and floors, European engineered cabinetry, Carerra marble, porcelain tile shower enclosures and integral plaster walls and ceilings. The architecture is reduced to its essence and is calculated and sober in its detailing. Resolution of plan and elevation were reduced to the lowest denominator and honesty of a process.

Overview of Scholl Residence

The lower level is completely below grade and houses the formal gallery space, large wine cellar and provides two guest suites with an attached massage room. The entry level offers the client’s office, a guest bedroom, laundry/mudroom area and the garage. The upper level contains the living, dining, kitchen, master suite and opens to the balcony and private garden with access to a roof terrace via a cantilevered steel stair. A small dumbwaiter shuttles wine from cellar to rooftop.

Studio B Architects has emerged as a creative influence in the mountain region’s modern built environment. Established in 1991 by Scott Lindenau, AIA, the firm has grown to include a talented and diverse group of designers and professionals who each bring their unique approach to design and technical expertise to the studio. Structured like a traditional atelier, weekly forums are led by our principals, Scott Lindenau and Gilbert Sanchez, on current projects in their design phase. In these discussions, everyone has the ability to contribute his or her knowledge and experience to the project. Additionally, the size and structure of the firm makes it possible to provide each job with a great measure of personal attention, and provide the quality of service our clients expect and the creative solutions they desire. Our enthusiasm, accessibility, and attention to detail have long been appreciated by our public and private clients.
