This urban home is pioneering change for a much needed revival of art and design in the historic Over-The-Rhine neighborhood in Cincinnati, Ohio. While the boom of historic renovations in Over-the-Rhine has been a large part of our business, none of our projects have been as ambitious as this single family residence.

The Findlay Neighborhood Residence project included a complete renovation and addition to a dilapidated structure. The existing building had gone through years of roughshod additions, renovations, and updates. Architecture firm Platte Architecture + Design proposed an addition that amplified the historic spaces while opening the building up to an expansive, modern interior.

The pursuit of LEED Platinum, complete with geothermal technology, contributes to this building’s unique place in the neighborhood. A first floor suite, sandwiched between the garage and utility room and street, is brought to life by the natural light provided by the a new four-story light-well. On the second floor we created one large continuous space complete with multiple seating areas, a large kitchen, and a dining room that accommodates 14.

Tiered terrace space creates multiple opportunities for outdoor experiences with a public and private separation. The upper floor contains children’s bedrooms, the master suite, outdoor fireplace and even a Japanese soaking tub- a true retreat nestled within the bustle of the city!
