The homeowners of little_Big house are industrial designers who envisioned a work studio and home for their growing family. Located on a dense and constrained urban street away from the center of Cleveland's Little Italy, the site is small and bound by narrow homes and obstructed views. As a result, the clients desired a modern, urban presence surrounding a private outdoor living area. Plus, the couple asked for flexibility to split the property in the future. As a result, the house became parsed in two, with a communal courtyard.

A unique mix of Kolbe Ultra Series windows and doors helped frame the boundaries of this design. Views from the casements, beveled direct set corner and geometric windows fall to the courtyard. The vision beyond the TerraSpan® lift & slide door reveals traditional Sterling double hung windows in what will eventually become a distinct home.

Through strategic window locations, ample light is playfully introduced to enhance the texture and patterns of the interior architecture.
