CURBED's Lauren Ro shares a look at a 1965 glass box-shaped home designed by John Sugden as a studio for himself and as a residence for his business partner Charlie Griffin in Salt Lake City.
The home is constructed entirely of A36 steel, and was formerly made up of two separate levels, each accessed by its own entrance. In 1998, the floors were connected to create an expansive single family residence.
Measuring 1,800 square feet, the cuboid residence notches itself into a steeply sloping site, where the above-grade upper level is glazed on all sides, with the flat roof (and floors) constructed from exposed steel and concrete diaphragms. This program and the corrugated steel ceilings lend an industrial feel to the house, but the glass walls make it feel light.
