Knez Homes and RSA Architecs have been hard at work developing this site along the Shoreway, east of Downtown Cleveland. This 3.9 acre site will be home to 48 townhomes, 88 apartment units, and approximately 10,000 square feet of commercial space. The leading focus of the design is to create a walkable urban neighborhood with easy access to local amenities. On-site walking paths and close proximity to local biking and hiking trails will allow residents and visitors alike to easily travel downtown and beyond. The buildings have been oriented to maximize views of the lake and the downtown skyline. All residential buildings have been designed with roof decks and balconies to help achieve this goal.
This project has recently been granted approval by the Downtown/Flats Design Review Committee and the City Planning Commission.
In very exciting news this week the Breakwater Bluffs Townhomes were named the "House of the Week" by Cleveland.com.
Knez Homes and RSA Architects worked together to create a contemporary design with modern amenities in a quickly developing urban living environment. The Breakwater Bluffs are located just a short walk from the beach at Edgewater Park as well as the Gordon Square Arts District.

RSA had the honor of participating in the 2018 Great Big Home and Garden Show hosted at the Cleveland I-X Center. This 10 day show featured over 600 exhibits and multiple presentations to help the average homeowner renew and restore their home. There were many builders and designers that displayed products with quality craftsmanship and countless impressive projects for all home improvement needs.
Both the founder of our office, Rick Siegfried, and one of our project designers, John Peterson, prepared a presentation to give homeowners practical advise about their future architectural design work. They helped introduce homeowners to what architects do, the design and construction process, and what homeowners can accomplish themselves.
John Peterson's presentation on "Why Hire an Architect and What to Expect" is posted below.
One of the principals of our office, Tony Majc, attended the 2018 International Builders' Show located in Orlando, Florida. The IBS is an annual event that had over 150+ education sessions, 583,000 square feet of exhibits, builders' clinics and opportunities for networking. It is a great opportunity for our office to discover a variety of products and innovative concepts to enhance our firm.
Tony noted the sophistication of product development in the 2018 IBS compared to the year prior. Many manufacturers made some significant advancements on their more interesting products. This included a tankless water heater that he was impressed with the previous year. The manufacturer improved the product by creating a recirculating pump that allows for no delay in the water delivery.
"The Galley" was another manufacturer of note. Their main product transforms a kitchen sink into a smart and functional workstation. They use sliding panels to move different types of work surfaces overtop of the sink. A functional and stylish concept that will change how we think about the use of our kitchen.
Additionally, Tony mentioned the increased quantity of on site modular homes displayed. The quality of these homes were greatly improved from the previous year and would be a positive and affordable solution to low income housing.
The International Builders' Show is a great resource for our office to stay up the date on the latest products and designs. This allows us to be better prepared to give our clients the best designs possible.
