After roughly 18 years of stewardship, Nancy Skolos and Tom Wedell, educators at the Rhode Island School of Design, are downsizing and selling the distinctive modern house they had built near Blue Hills Reservation.

In a neighborhood of Colonials, Victorians, and farmhouses, their 4,038-square-foot home is a series of boxes wrapped in copper-colored aluminum, shiny steel, and walls of opaque fiberglass panel that mimic shoji screens.
