The design of this mixed use development located near University of Cincinnati is a contemporary response to the context of the surrounding built environment. Given the large scale of the building which encompasses an entire block of the Corryville neighborhood, the façade has been broken into multiple “buildings” through the expression of different materials and colors, as well as accentuated cornice details. Located on the site of a formerly abandoned school, Views on Vine promises a return of vitality to this once active community. This project included the design of a new city block of mixed use buildings featuring retail, restaurants, banking and residential programming which included a secure garage parking for residents and commercial storefronts. An on-site bank required additional service to ensure a high level of security and surveillance within and outside of the facility.
