Reflects in Cleveland, Ohio by SILO AR+D

Friday, November 24th, 2017

Article source: SILO AR+D 

Reflects is a winner of an architect-led design build competition for a temporary “treehouse” structure that became a centerpiece of the Cleveland Botanical Garden’s 2015 summer show. The brief called for an innovative treehouse design that reconnected guests of all ages to the outdoors through interactive experiences that reveal the physical, emotional, and developmental benefits of staying engaged with outdoor environments. The chosen site was the Secret Garden, a walled court with no trees surrounded by manicured gardens adjacent to the existing Botanical Garden building. The design emerges from the challenge of imagining treehouse architecture on a tree-less site.

The Exchange in Columbus, Ohio by Oyler Wu Collaborative

Friday, October 20th, 2017

Article source: Oyler Wu Collaborative

The Exchange sits within the plaza adjacent to the Irwin Conference Center by Eero Saarinen (formerly the Irwin Union Bank) and makes use of the three existing canopies that formerly served the drive-through bank tellers. The design challenge was to “activate” the space while relating a contemporary design concept to the historic building and existing site conditions. Oyler Wu’s research into Eero Saarinen’s oeuvre, along with analysis of the site, led to a focus on three keys concepts: the unification of the existing canopies into a rectangular volume, solid/void relationships that include a \”loose fit\” placement of solid elements within carved voids throughout the scheme, and the use of contrasting tectonic strategies of solid and frame. The intention of this strategy is to produce the sense that the pavilion is simultaneously brand new and that it has always been there.

CLEVELAND MUSEUM OF ART in Ohio by Rafael Viñoly Architects

Thursday, April 20th, 2017

Article source: Rafael Viñoly Architects 

The Cleveland Museum of Art, one of the largest and most important art institutions in the United States, was built in 1916 by local architects Hubbell and Benes as a Greek revival pavilion, situated at the head of a pastoral park and lagoon landscape designed by the Olmsted Brothers. However, subsequent additions, including a noteworthy education wing by Marcel Breuer, obscured the rational plan of the original structure with a disjointed, confusing warren of spaces. In 2001, Rafael Viñoly Architects won the commission to resolve these conditions with an expansion and renovation, creating a coherent organization of galleries that accommodates projected growth and unifies disparate architectural vocabularies into a singular composition.

The Harbour Luxury Lakefront Community in Sandusky, Ohio by Chelsea Building Products

Friday, April 14th, 2017

Article source: Chelsea Building Products

Situated on the shore of Lake Erie in Sandusky, OH, The Harbour has seen its share of extreme weather. Most notably in 2008 and again in 2010, the 188-unit luxury community experienced severe hailstorms that damaged the cedar siding on many of its buildings.

Left with unrepairable and highly noticeable damage, the HOA sought a replacement for the exteriors that could be installed efficiently and withstand anything Mother Nature may have in mind. They found Everlast® Advanced Composite Siding, the only product that could match the refined look and color of the original cedar, while remaining impervious to all kinds of severe weather – from harsh sunlight and heat to wind, subzero temperatures, and even hail.

little_BIG house in Cleveland, Ohio by robert maschke ARCHITECTS

Tuesday, January 24th, 2017

Article source: robert maschke ARCHITECTS

The little_BIG house is located in Cleveland, Ohio’s historic Little Italy neighborhood, known for its rich culture and artisanal background. The husband and wife client, both industrial designers, commissioned the project to create a studio for their work and a home to raise a growing family. The residence is located on a dense and constrained urban street away from the idyllic neighborhood center. The site is narrow and bound by three “shot gun” homes to the North, a retaining wall to the East, and a multi story condominium to the South. A former open framed steel warehouse, now used as a covered surface parking structure, is to the west, obstructing views from the site. The imposition of these structures help to inform the design approach.

Decentralized nursing desks, located next to patient rooms, place caregivers closer to those they serve and keep the patient floor quiet by dispersing activity.
