Private Residence
Bexley, OH

Originally constructed in 1908, this unique shingle style structure served for many years as the official residence of The Ohio State University President. Shingle style architecture is relatively rare to the midwest and was popular during the early part of the 20th century along the East coast. The current owner commissioned Rogers Krajnak to design an addition and extensive remodeling. The addition successfully integrates multiple floor elevations, varied roof lines, and shingle style detailing that give the existing residence it's distinct character. The octagonal turret element marks the new back door and aesthetically serves as resolution to the multiple roof forms and floor elevations. Functionally, the addition provides a first floor garage expansion and new back entry and mudroom, and second floor guest room and study.
