The 2020 Elizabeth L. and John H. Schuler Architectural Award will be presented to homeowners Jill and Avie Glazer for their Estate Section residence. Designed by Brazilian architect Marcio Kogan of Studio MK27, the minimalist design projects warmth through natural materials and illustrates how a beautiful and livable space can be designed without reliance on variances from the local zoning code. By focusing on building out rather than up, the one-story building emphasizes a connection with the surrounding landscape and seamlessly fits in with the traditional architecture of its Estate Section location.
The Elizabeth L. and John H. Schuler Award was founded in 2005 by Mr. and Mrs. Schuler to recognize achievement in new architecture that expresses superior design and also complements the architectural history of Palm Beach. John Schuler served as Chairman of the Town of Palm Beach Architectural Review Commission for many years and as the Treasurer of the Foundation’s Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees.
