New Residence Hyde Park Cincinnati

Cincinnati, Ohio



Built on an empty lot in Hyde Park, this new 4,100 square foot home was designed to be authentically traditional both inside and out, while addressing the contemporary lifestyle of a couple with three young children. 

Emulating a traditional, four-square home, the formal spaces, including the foyer, library, and dining room are located toward the street.  The more casual spaces are centralized with the kitchen, breakfast, and family room defined by beams and flanking columns without compromising the feeling of openness.  French doors lead to a sitting room that resembles the enclosed porches commonly found in the neighborhood.  Between the kitchen and the side porch leading to the detached garage, an owner’s entry complete with a cubbies for each family member, a memo blackboard, and “mom’s desk” serves as the staging area for the family.

One of the most important features of this home is its thoughtful circulation. Accordingly, the home features two separate stairs. One connects the rear patio/play yard with the lower level recreation room and future guest suite.  The other, with its artfully detailed balustrade ascends from the foyer to the second floor hallway featuring an inviting window seat flanked by bookshelves.
