Woodlawn Senior Apartments
Woodlawn, Ohio

Client: Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority



LDA architects designed a 76-unit apartment building for seniors (just under 20 units per acre). The design featured a large community space with attached warming kitchen which connects to an outdoor courtyard space, community lounge rooms on each floor, supporting office space, and landscaped garden terraces. LDA was commissioned to create a scheme for three design styles: Contemporary, Traditional, and Arts & Crafts. The Contemporary style was chosen to be in context with the neighboring Woodlawn Community Center and National Guard.
