An Artful and Eclectic Addition and Interior Renovation in Shaker Heights

This extensive home remodeling project in Shaker Heights, Ohio included a nearly 3-story tall addition, kitchen/dining room combo, living room, den, dining room, finished basement, outdoor living spaces, retrofitting whole-house air conditioning, and more.

The long-time homeowners had considered moving, but with a lifetime of family memories, including having three children go through the Shaker school system, they felt that reinvesting in their current home made more sense than moving to an unfamiliar neighborhood. Their commitment not only to their home, but to their street, and the community, made sense to them because they love living where they are. Having fulfilled their unique vision they now have familiar, yet updated, surroundings for children and grandchildren to return to over the coming years….and coming decades. This project exemplifies both the unique aesthetic views of the clients, as well as a true appreciation for sense of place.

Project:Interior, Addition, Kitchen
Location:Chadbourne Road
Shaker Heights, Ohio
Built:c. 1926
Challenges:Constrained lot size which made it quite difficult to achieve project (addition) goals; zoning variance; achieving design consensus on such a unique, personal, and hard to define interior design theme.
Features:Addition interior is nearly 3-stories tall; radiant floor heat embedded in concrete floor; addition can be used as open air 3-season room conditioned separately from main house; dog-friendly property!
Comments:The natural light in the addition is amazing and the kitchen and dining room must be experienced to really appreciate.
