Based on many weeks of research, conversation and exploration we not only developed two housing types (single family & multi-family) but we also developed a community, a pre-fab system that could be adapted to other building types and a growth strategy for the village.

The following are snippets from an older portfolio. The project was a residential, mixed use rehabilitation project. This group project was complete in the spring of 2008. The client’s that we worked with are now in the process of actually rehabbing their property in an effort to assist with the revitalization of OTR (a struggling neighborhood in Cincinnati, OH). Our design featured passive and active systems to create a more efficient home that could literally grow with the client!

The project went over so well that a story was published in the local news and a downtown shop opened up their doors for an entire month to have our model and documents on display to the community!  Many thanks to Park & Vine!
