Steel House

Multifamily Housing

When two of our long term clients joined forces to build a brand new multi-family housing development in Grandview, we couldn’t wait to collaborate with them to bring their unique, but complementary, visions to life.

Steel House is perfectly situated between The Ohio State University and The James, making it an ideal home for students and young medical professionals. With that in mind, we wanted to give the space a youthful and contemporary flair, while interweaving aspects of our clients’ more traditional aesthetic. In the foyer we used a porcelain tile flooring made to resemble hardwood floors, inlaid with a classic black and white pattern. The custom made, asymmetrical front desk features a modern, geometric pattern that is well balanced by exposed beams and classic columns. In the lounge, we created a focal wall made of repurposed, black and gold cerused wood, laid in a herringbone pattern, with a niche for books. This modern element is tempered by the more traditional, painted brick and classic wall sconces that bookend the entertainment center. Throughout the space, the modern and traditional are in perfect conversation, bringing balance and luxury to the residents of Steel House. Much to our delight, they’re not the only ones benefiting from the property’s design. The property has proven to be a good investment for our clients; it’s already been purchased by another, local investment company!
