The single family dwelling resides on Cleveland’s westside near Kaams Corner and is a replacement home to one that had recently burnt down. The client, Eden Inc. provides subsidized housing for those facing challenges of housing insecurities and homelessness.
The single level home merges accessibility with a contextually sensitive design. The property is situated amongst a neighborhood full of post war housing. The wedge shaped lot informed the houses geometry, creating a design opportunity with two rectangular volumes overlapping. One simple volume maintains it’s rectangularity and houses bedrooms and accessible bathroom while the other volume houses public functions such as entry, living, kitchen and dining.
The project merges contemporary detailing with a traditional material and form resulting in a project that fits in the neighborhood and responds to the context while remaining functional to the diverse needs of today.
