When we began designing Sycamore House, located in Hilliard Ohio, we wanted to honor the city’s rich history. We drew inspiration from Hilliard’s past as a railway town in order to create a design that was traditional and moody, masculine and welcoming.
Working with this design scheme as our jumping off point, we worked in close collaboration with our client, a local builder-developer, to understand the needs and desires of their ideal tenants: young professionals. We created distinct living spaces in the clubhouse, including a theater, business center, coffee bar, and lounge area. Reminiscent of the luxury rail cars of yesteryear, the space is accented with repurposed wood beams, a one of a kind billiard table, and a specially designed mural of antique blueprints, another nod to history. The club house’s fireplace features wood storage and ceramic tile made of industrial glass and is bookended by custom, leather booth seating. As the club house serves as the residents’ second home, we furnished the space with a mix of both residential and commercial grade pieces, making it as welcoming as it will be long lasting.
