Moerlein Lager House  Located next door to Great American Ballpark on the Ohio riverfront, the brewery and restaurant was designed and managed by Chad Puckett while working for Tilsley Architects. Design inspiration for the building was found in the fantastic river views, as well as the heavy steel structures of the nearby Roebling Suspension Bridge and neighboring Cincinnati Red’s ballpark. The building faces a large event lawn with a performance stage at the opposite end. All of these conditions help shape this building into be a two-story “pavilion” style structure that cantilevers and extends outwards towards the river. The idea was to bring the exterior views of the ballpark, bridges, river and park into the interior of the building. While inside, you still feel connected to the surrounding exterior environment of the riverfront. The sloping steel columns, details and railings are meant to evoke the local bridge structures and nautical elements. The Douglas fir wood beams and ceiling open upward and outward to reflect a warm glowing environment within, while connecting to the outside surrounding views. The building is 25,000 s.f., and is LEED Certified. Construction was by Schumacher Dugan.  
       
     
  Monastery Street I  Sitting on a hillside lot in Mount Adams, this residence was designed with entertaining and creative collaborations in mind. White, clean details such as marble finishes and Italian fixtures are incorporated throughout the 3,000 sq. ft. residence, along with 1,500 sq. ft. of additional basement space. The exterior of the home features a combination of white stucco, weathered cedar planks, expansive windows and rooftop deck. This home intentionally complements and contrasts with the  Monastery Street II  residence, which sits directly next door. Fold + Form served as the architect for this project, interiors are by RM Interiors, and Jim Bronzie is the builder. The residence will undergo LEED Platinum certification.

  Mulberry Street  The Mulberry Street residence is located in Over-the-Rhine. Perched on a hillside with views of the Cincinnati downtown area. Because the property is located in a Historic District, certain exterior design criteria and guidelines had to be met in order preserve the historic architecture of the neighborhood. From the street view, the 3-story home emulates an historic-style house, but with light grey, random-length concrete brick. This 3,100 square foot industrial modern design, has a monobeam staircase and expansive windows allowing natural light to flood throughout. From the back of the home, an exterior cube element serves as striking outdoor balcony, which expands off the main living area from wall-to-wall folding doors. The balcony also features a green wall and a spiral staircase, which leads to an intimate rooftop deck angled purposely for ultimate privacy while taking in city views. Construction on this 3 bedroom, 3 full & 1 half-bath home will be complete in Spring 2018 and will undergo LEED Platinum certification. Fold + Form serves as the architect and builder for this project. 
       
     
  State Road Residence  This residence located in Anderson Township, Ohio, was designed by Fold and Form as a re-interpreted version of a mid-century suburban ranch home for today’s world. The living and dining wing is separated from the sleeping wing by a long connecting hallway. This form creates a large outdoor courtyard area in the rear of the house. The courtyard faces a heavily wooded area, which forms the “fourth wall” of the outdoor “room.” Consisting of 1,700 s.f. of living space, the home appears much larger by having each wing of the house look onto the other across the rear patio. The exterior elevations consist of two opposing extruded C-shaped metal roof profiles that reinforce this idea of inward focus. Construction was by John McCart Builders.
