1254 NORTH HIGH

 

columbus, ohio

 

This project developed as the direct neighbor to the Smith and High Project (1242 N. High St.), creating an array of urban infill projects along N. High St. in the Short North arts district. This project expands the residential program on site, providing 9 loft units and 9 standard units over structured ground floor parking. Utilizing the newly updated University Impact District Guidelines, this project works to develop a design solution that integrates a unique site position with the existing architecture and the surrounding neighborhood. A key element to this project is the relationship of the residential outdoor spaces that cantilever from, carve into, and inhabit the southern façade. Large, contemporary two-story loft units provide unique living spaces with plenty of access to views, natural light, and ventilation opportunities, important design elements within urban environments.
