The project, currently in the Schematic Design phase, is construction of 55,000 sf of commercial and office space at the corner of 15th and Vine streets, in the heart of Over the Rhine. The project will include an existing 5 story masonry building, as well as the facades of two four story buildings that caught fire in 2010.
|Design: ||The intent of the design was to create a building that while clearly contemporary, fits into the historic context of Over-the-Rhine. We wanted to use materials and massings that do not copy the existing buildings, but rather can be seen to relate: materials that have their own inherent variations and patina, and a massing that relates to the idea of punched openings and has a similar scale and rhythm, but that is not as rigid as the existing Italiante context. |
|Role: ||Conceptual design, 3d modeling, client meetings and presentations, Historic Review Board presentation.
