OTR: Sustainable Preservation
2008 University of Cincinnati Studio Project
Over-the-Rhine is the largest designated historic district in the U.S. at 362 acres and consisting of 943 contributing structures. One of these structures is a former urban horse stable built sometime between 1891 and 1904. The renovation called for enclosed parking and residential units to be developed within the space. The design focused on the co-existence of historical preservation and sustainable design aspects, and was assisted throughout by a team of Integrated Design Professionals including: architects, engineers, historians, city officials, and LEED accredited professionals, amongst others. The precedent set with this design and study will prove valuable as cities all around the country look to improve the energy efficiency of older buildings without demolishing and replacing them.
