Dimit Architects have developed twenty-seven Townhouses in Cleveland, Ohio within Little Italy in a reclaimed inner-city area, providing buyers with homes that are composed of sustainable and locally-produced materials, private outdoor space and beautiful vistas of the surrounding neighborhood.  The design strategy of the homes will give the owners the power to customize their spaces with complimentary interior design consultations from a selection of leading firms, including Dimit Architects. Join us after the break for more on this project.

The loft-style townhouses are located at boundary of active train and transit lines, creating a buffer zone to protect the neighborhood of Little Italy in Cleveland.  The three-story residences feature terraces and balconies that provide each unit with outdoor space and the opportunity for urban gardening.  The houses all feature dramatic facades that express the lofted space within and with high ceiling they provide a dramatic view of the neighborhood surrounding them. Residents have the option of adding a green tray planting in front of their homes and adding a roof trellis for privacy and shade.  In order to preserve additional privacy for the residents, the facade is clad in phenolic panels that function as a rain screen with additional cement board panels. For environmental performance, the architects chose double pane insulated low-E windows, insulated fiberglass doors, programmable thermostat, R13 insulation exterior walls, R30 insulation ceilings, sound insulation and house wrap and sealant package.
