The Shaker Heights House is a project developed by Dimit Architects and completed in the summer of 2012. The project spreads over 7200 square feet. Surrounded by a sea of trees, the house looks spectacular during fall, when the leaves play gently their own swing of decadence. The residence is located in Cleveland, Ohio and it is composed of two wings which unite and form the core of the house, an open kitchen with a staggering view over the courtyard. The clients, a young family requested a dynamic home, with plenty of space and luminosity and a very good division of the public and the private areas.
As a consequence, the architects chose to separate the living room and the entertaining areas ( the social gathering spots) from the bedrooms, the office and the gym. The public area is very bright and neat, “flooded” in a milky white, giving that impeccable look to the interior. The shiny white floors blend with the wood creating an interesting contrast. The result is a very modern place, incredibly welcoming and comfortable. The exterior patio has a fireplace embedded, which is really cool, especially at night when the chill “tickles” the skin. Simply amazing, right?
