Aspen Community School in Aspen Sojourner

The Aspen Community School which was completed in the Fall of 2015 was featured in the Summer edition of Aspen Sojourner Magazine.

“In an effort to create synergy between the new school, the surrounding landscape, and existing buildings nearby, the Studio B team chose building materials that reflected Woody Creek’s agricultural heritage. For example, they positioned the metal exterior siding in horizontal bands to echo the older log structures elsewhere on campus and create the feeling that the buildings were emerging organically from the landscape. The village feel that was so important in the original compound is supplemented by the new buildings—the school itself and a separate gymnasium—whose orientation toward big views of the Elk Mountains enhances the connection to the surroundings.”

Desert Landscapes Sketching Excursion

In September the Studio took a week-long journey to the desert landscapes of Utah to visit Moab, Arches, Bryce Canyon, Canyonlands and Capitol Reef. We enjoyed camping under the stars and many memorable hikes. The immense natural beauty of the geological formations provided beautiful subjects to hone our sketching skills.

Riverside House in Dezeen

Our Riverside House project in Woody Creek was recently featured in one of our favorite Design Blogs, Dezeen.

“Colorado architects Studio B have extended a local waterfront home by adding a pair of buildings with different levels of privacy. Riverside House is located in the remote town of Woody Creek, Colorado, and takes its name from a trout-fishing river that it faces. The original home is a low volume with public spaces on the ground floor. Full-height glazing provides residents with views of the nearby river. At the house’s extremity, a second storey contains the master suite. This room is glazed on three sides, offering sweeping views of the surrounding landscape.”
