Award-winning architecture house, Studio B, has unveiled their inspired design of Aspen Community School in Woody Creek, Colorado. The school building features rooftop solar panels and an open design encouraging lots of fresh air and sunlight.

The primary school in remote Woody Creek sits at the base of mountains, northwest of Aspen Colorado. Formerly a collection of small wooden structures, the redesign was partially funded by a school grant.

"A palette of modest but durable materials – rusted metal shingles, fibre-cement board and Western red cedar siding – were selected for their compatibility with the existing campus context and for low maintenance," said Studio B.
