Especially designed and constructed by Dimit Architects for an active young family in the Cleveland suburb of Shaker Heights, Ohio, this residence ranks high in modern features. The team’s plan was to split the house in two wings, functionally dividing the living spaces from the bedrooms, home office, exercise room, and support spaces: “The two wings meet at the heart of the house- an expansive open kitchen, with views to a protected rear courtyard with swimming and reflecting pools“.

From afar, the place looks quite imposing: “The various rectilinear masses of the house are clad in either a light cast stone veneer or with ipe wood slats arranged over a rain-screen membrane“. Tall ceilings dominate the interiors, giving each room volume. Despite the highly modern approach, a personal and warm feel is provided by a variety of colors and textures, creatively blending in the overall design scheme. See any details you like?
