Passion for both the craft of building and the art of design, StudioROEDER is a multidisciplinary studio engaged in creating realized works responsibly connected to their context and function. Approach to each project, regardless of scale or typology, aims to amplify a sense of place or purpose while avoiding any pre-determined methodology. Design excellence is achieved through the investigation of spatial relationships, the appropriate use of materials, and a thorough understanding of the clients programmatic and budgetary needs. Works ranging from public design projects to in-house crafted furniture provide a sense of intimacy between the user and their environment.
As a third generation builder, Roeder's interests are deeply rooted in the craft of building. Coupled with over 16 years in the architectural practice, StudioROEDER has an in-depth knowledge of the construction industry. This experience and a collaborative process of working closely with clients, consultants, artisans, and builders, StudioROEDER brings a hands-on approach to their work instrumental in exceeding the expectations of their clients.
Principal of StudioROEDER, Scott Roeder, completed his studies at the Ball State University receiving a Bachelor of Science in Fine Arts and Industrial Technology Construction Management in 1994, and Arizona State University Graduate School of Architecture receiving a Master of Architecture in 2000. Prior to finishing his graduate thesis, Roeder began a 5 year apprenticeship working under the internationally acclaimed architect, Wendell Burnette, as project manager for the 43,000 square foot Palo Verde Library / Maryvale Community Center, and the Ellington, Wisconsin Field House, both which have received national and international recognition. In 2004 Roeder joined the team of fellow graduate Joe Herzog, co-founder of the young and nationally recognized avant-garde studio Merz Project, working as senior lead project architect. StudioROEDER was established in 2008 with works beginning in Arizona, Indiana, and British Columbia. In 2010 one of first completed projects, the Earll Residence, received the Valley Forward Association Environmental Excellence Award of Merit.
