Custom Home Magazine recently announced its annual awards and Ben Roth is among the national winners!
The Trader Addition–a project by Jen Mei at Carney Logan Burke Architects and Ben Roth–received Custom Home Magazine’s Custom Detail Merit Award! The award recognized Ben’s exceptional metalwork on this sculptural outdoor shower screen.
According to Custom Home Magazine, â€œ’The clients wanted something that felt modern but also rugged, organic, and very connected to the site,’ says project architect Jennifer Mei…The design team asked local steel artist Ben Roth to create a fence as the shower barrier…to play with patterns of light and shadow against the rammed earth wall. In addition to alternating the angles of the fins to change the transparency of the fence, the artist scooped out the tops in a graduated sequence. These two techniques give the steel a soft, undulating quality that is a theme in Rothâ€™s work. ‘Itâ€™s all about the materials and use of light.'”
