Shaker Heights Residence by Dimit Architects
This single-family living arrangement was intended to encourage the cutting edge way of life of a dynamic youthful family in the verdant Cleveland suburb of Shaker Heights, Ohio. The house arrangement is orchestrated as two fundamental wings—one is more open in capacity with living, feasting, and stimulating spaces—the other is more private, giving rooms, home office, activity room, and bolster spaces.
The two wings meet at the heart of the house-an extensive open kitchen, with perspectives to a secured back yard with swimming and reflecting pools.
The different rectilinear masses of the house will be clad in either a light thrown stone polish or with ipe wood braces orchestrated over a downpour screen layer. Liberal exit rooftop decks, additionally surfaced with ipe wood supports, give expansions to each of the second floor room spaces, while the staying level rooftop surfaces will be planted with green prairie grasses.
