A delightful urban farmhouse with warm and inviting interiors in Cincinnati

This gorgeous urban farmhouse home was designed by Drawing Dept, located on a tight infill lot in an established suburb of Cincinnati, Ohio. The homeowners are transplants from the South and were looking for a 21st-century regional farmhouse – including the commensurate wood porch and swing that makes a house a home.

Owing to an unconventional site that includes the adjacent properties’ side, front, and backyard, a strategy was developed to extend the house along the property lines in order to create a cloistered effect. The result is a thin ‘C’ shaped plan that features the development of a variety of private exterior spaces: a screened porch, an auto court, an elevated dining terrace, a garden, and a covered porch that eventually spills out to the backyard.

By creating protracted views through multiple layers of spaces and taking advantage of the site’s topography, the otherwise small site feels enlarged. Large north-facing banks of windows and doors open to the private exterior spaces expanding the dwelling’s interior, while walls at the perimeter fortify the site.

Our favorite room in this home is the screened porch, an idyllic space to enjoy throughout the seasons whether lounging or gathering with loved ones.
