Study for The Flats at Old Powell Powell, Oh

Reminiscent of midwestern simplicity, the Flat's of Old Powell bring together contemporary living with a sense of small town tradition.

The Studio approached the design of this project to complement the unique character of the downtown district of Powell, Ohio. Taking queues from a Midwestern Vernacular aesthetic while encompassing a bit of a contemporary mindset. The one and two bedroom flats feature views of main street, with private parking garages and garden space in the rear for this midwestern community development.  A Commercial building holds the corner transitioning from the downtown district bridging the gap between commercial and residential.

About The Author

Dan Hanes - Architecture

Danial was born in Alaska to Midwesterners who were long on love but short on spelling ability. He grew up in many cities and Air force bases throughout the world. Right out of Architectural school he started working on many large, complex sports projects across the country including Chase Field, Miami Heat Arena, an Olympic Stadium in Atlanta, and Madison Square Garden. While this work was rewarding, all of the required travel meant he only saw his wife and two small children on weekends. Looking for a change that would allow more time with his family, an opportunity of a lifetime opened up. Nationwide was planning to develop a district around their newly designed Arena. Consequently he moved with his family to Columbus in 1999 and has since worked on many notable Columbus projects, including: Huntington Ballpark, The Scioto Mile, Nationwide Arena District, Northbank and Parks Edge condominiums. Danial has also been involved in the local design community as a guest Critic for the Knowlton School Architecture and served as a board member for the Center for Architecture and Design.
