The Scholl Residence expands on the ‘Case Study’ series of the 1950’s. A difficult site possesses challenges in its drainage, topography and small footprint. The solution is essentially a detailed box where the details become the architecture.
The client, an art collector, requested a plan that will allow his collection to be housed. The exterior is composed of custom zinc panels, sand-blasted formed concrete, aluminum window/door glazing system and tempered glass railings. The project is reduced to its essence and is calculated and sober in its detailing. Resolution of plan and elevation were reduced to the lowest denominator.
