Ronald McDonald House of Greater Cincinnati

Interior Architecture- Large Scale (>5,000 sf)

Project Narrative

“More rooms, more love.”
The vision of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Cincinnati is to welcome all families in need, but their existing space was limited. “Any volunteer that sits at our front desk can tell you that one of the most heartbreaking things is to tell a family who has called for a room that we don’t have space for them,” says Executive Director Jennifer Loeb. “And that has happened thousands of times over the past ten years.”

The expansion does more than increase the number of bedrooms, it provides the comforts of home for families coming to Cincinnati from across the country and around the world. Private space to retreat, a quiet window seat, game and craft rooms, kitchen, and dining areas to accommodate both communal and single-family meals—these spaces connect to each other, but in a way that encourages people to choose how and where they engage with volunteers, staff, and other families
