The Red


The Red is a five-story luxury apartment complex in Cincinnati’s Madisonville neighborhood. Surrounding a central plaza containing a pool and other outdoor amenity spaces, the wood-framed building sits atop a concrete-framed podium containing parking and other support spaces. A continuous, undulating “ribbon” and a variety of massing elements and materials help break down the apparent mass of the building. The project is the first phase of a larger-scale mixed-use development.

Project responsibilities included coordination with structural and MEP engineering systems, and generation of construction documents and details for the exterior shell of the building.
