Shaker Heights House by Dimit Architects
By Freshome.com - Interior Design & Architecture Magazine on Dec 07, 2012
The Shaker Heights House is a project developed by Dimit Architects and completed in the summer of 2012. The project spreads over 7,200 square feet. Surrounded by a sea of trees, the house looks spectacular during fall, when the leaves play their own gentle swing of decadence.
The residence is located in Cleveland, OH, 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 strong 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 that imparts an 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—really cool, especially at night when the chill "tickles" the skin. Simply amazing, right?
