Residential Architecture: Nove I Houses by Studio B Architects: “..Nove 1 consists of two 3,500 sqf single-family residences located on a corner lot in Aspen, Colorado, USA’s West End neighborhood. Sometimes entitled “Sibling Rivalry,” Nove’s two residences divide the property into equal halves and draw a line – the concrete landscaping wall – right down the double courtyard in the middle..The residences are within easy walking distance of Aspen’s numerous cultural activities. The architecture of the houses is clean and sophisticated..The exterior and interior material palate (ndlr: Our suggestion is “palette”) is simple yet elegant, and designed for housing of the residents’ many pieces of artwork..” Extensive glazing, natural light, clerestory windows; interesting interior volumes, materiality and details; horizontal wood cladding; indoor / outdoor sensibility; art includes, among others, a lovely work by Frank Stella from his “Protractor Series“..
