Article source: Studio Twenty Seven Architecture

In 2006, Design Army, an accolade laden Washington DC graphic design firm looked for a new space to locate its growing business. After a concentrated search, Design Army was able to purchase an abandoned and dilapidated building in the City’s NOMA (North of Massachusetts Avenue) District. Destroyed in the riots of 1968, the NOMA District had laid dormant for over 30 years before being identified as a focus redevelopment zone in the City’s master plan.

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.

This small residual wedge-shaped property sat vacant for years given its many site restraints and complexities including; front streets on two sides, 10’-0” snow storage easements on 2 sides, buried City of Aspen main water and electric lines directly under the building footprint which required re-location and a year of approvals and strict zoning ordinances given its location in Aspen’s Historic West End.
