The Split – Gianluca Richards

Building Architecture- Small Scale (<10,000 sf)

Project Narrative

This was a student project for a class in the spring of 2023. I attend the University of Cincinnati and am studying Architectural Engineering. Our task was to design a restaurant on an existing site on Vine St, Cincinnati. Our site was in the shape of an "L". We had no constraints on what kind of building we could design and we were given no budget to work with. Because of this, we could be as creative as we wanted as long as our design was logical and was determined to be a viable construction by our professors. This building has two floors. The lower floor has a warmer feel to it, being the main dining area / kitchen area. The upper floor has the higher class dining with the banquet hall and indoor greenhouse. The approach from Vine St. has an outdoor bar.
