AIA Cleveland Design Awards – Merit Winner
This 3,500-square-foot suburban home, designed for a passionate graphic design couple, was meant to blend Danish Modern and Coastal Shingle Style architecture. In order to complement the scale of the neighboring properties, the architect developed a plan to split the overall volume of the home into two similar, traditional New-England-style structures. Between each form, the kinetic motion of moving from public to private space is displayed by a modern glass prism containing a floating stair with a slatted-wood screen wall. Designed by AoDK featuring aluminum doors and clad windows by Quaker.
Iconic building. Epic proportions. Flawless execution.
Designed by New York architect Henry Bacon, The Halle Building was called elegant and refined in the detailing of its white terracotta facade. This building is the third tallest in the Cleveland Theater District and was constructed originally at 10 stories in 1907 and completed in 1908. After two major additions, one in 1914 and another in 1949, the Halle Building stood as it does today. The challenges that came with the historic replication and replacement of these windows mostly stemmed from the additions to the structure, creating many different wall conditions and roof surfaces. From a product standpoint, it doesn’t get more complicated. We required seven custom aluminum panning dies in order to closely replicate the original wood double-hungs and vertical pivot casements. Our ability to provide these types of custom options, aid the owners and contractors with the SHPO and NPS approval process, and install on time as promised, earned us this amazing project. Nothing is quite as rewarding as being part of renewing an iconic building in such an amazing city.
