Francois de Menil's NOLO Studios

Recommended Posts

Renowned architect Francois de Menil will develop NOLO Studios, a community of single-family residences in Acres Homes designed for working artists who desire living and studio space in a community setting. Star Massing of Boulevard Realty will serve as the exclusive listing and marketing agent for the homes. Massing was also involved in conceiving the project.
 

De Menil will be the developer and the architect for each of the fourteen homes and common area that will be built in a three-acre gated community between the T.C. Jester Hike & Bike Trail and Wheatley Street off of Mansfield Rd and West Tidwell.


Also from Massing's website when the project was originally named Mansfield Studios:

In anticipation of the development, five of the fourteen homes have been reserved, even though the final touches to the drawings aren’t expected to be completed until September 2015. The remaining nine are also preselling now.

 

I haven't come across additional information pertaining to an updated number of homes available for January.

From Boulevard Realty in May 2015:

 

 

Rediscovering Acres Homes with a Menil-Backed Artist Community


Many people embrace living in small towns because they enjoy the sense of community that is often unavailable in large cities. But even in the middle of the fourth largest city in the U.S., it’s possible to find communities.
 

For example, renowned architect Francois de Menil will develop a community of single-family residences in Acres Homes designed for working artists who desire living and studio space in a community setting. Star Massing, a Top Producing Realtor with Boulevard Realty, will serve as the exclusive listing and marketing agent for the homes. Massing was also involved in conceiving the project.
 

De Menil will be the developer and the architect for each of the fourteen homes and common area that will be built in a three-acre gated community between the T.C. Jester Hike & Bike Trail and Wheatley Street off of Mansfield. In anticipation of the development, five of the fourteen homes have been reserved, even though drawings aren’t expected to be completed until June 2015. The remaining nine are also preselling now.
 

It’s planned that each home will be situated on close to a 10,000 square foot tract of land and will be listed in the $300s. Also part of the community will be a common garden and outdoor kitchen. From start to finish it’s anticipated that all of the homes, which will be built at the same time, will take a year for completion. A builder has yet to be named.
 

Many artists currently call the Acres Home area home, including: the Art Guys, David Kidd, Terrell James, Thedra Cullar-Ledford, Trenton Doyle Hancock, Richard Huebscher, Kiki Neumann, Seth Mittag, and several others.
 

De Menil founded his small design studio, FdM:Arch, in 1991. Since that time he has provided architectural and interior design services for a variety of institutional, residential, retail, and corporate office projects. The yet unnamed development is a rare opportunity for artists to purchase a home in this price range with both living and studio space, designed by an architect who is best known for working on million-dollar-plus residences.

I wonder if all those white walls, cabinets, doors, and stairs could be white board material - then you could draw on the whole house!

The site of Nolo Studios is NOT in Acres Homes!  It is in The Highland Heights.  Proximal yes, but technically NO.
