14th & Vine
14th & Vine is Model Group’s residential project in the Gateway Quarter District of Cincinnati’s historic Over-the-Rhine. The project is located on the West side of Cincinnati’s primary north-south spine, Vine Street.
14th & Vine is a new construction condominium project on a small urban-infill site. glaserworks designed the building to have a strong street presence. We designed the exterior of the first floor to accommodate varied commercial market demands by using contemporary garage doors. Most of the garage doors are operable, allowing future commercial tenants to completely open their interior to the sidewalk. This aesthetic also helps camouflage the actual garage door which accesses the parking garage contained in the building.
glaserworks designed the building to have a strong corner presence with a ‘tower’ element. We used historic contextual building patterns of rhythm, proportion and scale while utilizing contemporary materials and detailing. 14th & Vine features projecting bay windows and exterior balconies for each unit.
We designed the interior of the building using curved walls to allow the reach of natural light as far into the interior of spaces as possible. We also designed a dynamic entry sequence from the sidewalk to each dwelling.
