Project Owner's name and address:
Irie Kynyk Goss Architects
2216 Lee Road, Cleveland Heights, Ohio
The project is located in a busy neighborhood of an older suburban community. The building was originally a two story retail and apartment structure built in 1920, with approximately 2,200 square feet per floor. The lower floor shops remain, while the upstairs apartments were converted into bright, open offices. To achieve that openness, most interior walls were removed, and large openings were installed in many that remained. A new skylight runs the length of the entry stair and drafting studio, and the prinicpal's area is lit by large expanses of greenhouse-style glass windows which capture North light.
