An Entirely New Approach To Urban Living

The historic Tremont neighborhood is the most vibrant example of the revival of Cleveland's urban core.
The Cleveland renaissance has strong roots in the world-class Restaurants , Art Galleries
and Community Culture that has grown organically in this storied enclave.

Many classic homes that predate the Civil War have been renovated and reinvented. This was followed by a deluge of new construction of varied style homes, but even more varied was the degree of quality in their Design and Construction. Headquartered in Tremont, the (ARC)form team carefully evaluated the general quality of what was being offered, and set out to raise the bar.

The Cottages on Thurman are the first result of that quest. On track to be completed in the summer of 2015, these two free-standing homes offer a new level of thoughtful design and quality of construction that cannot be matched in Tremont.

They are built to maximize the amazing views of the Downtown skyline and to give the new owners a gorgeous, spacious and practical place to call home.
The beauty comes from smart design and the use of honest materials : real slate stone and cedar wood, instead of simulated cladding and lower quality veneers seen in many of the neighboring new construction houses. 

Blazing a new trail in Cleveland, both of the homes are also being built to be the Healthiest, Most Durable/Low Maintenance, and Eco-Friendly houses in Northeast Ohio.  Exclusively from (ARC)form, these are the first Tremont homes to be registered for LEED Certification. The LEED program is the world standard for Green Building, with exacting requirements for Energy Efficiency, Indoor Air Quality, Safety and Positive Environmental Impact.

Going even beyond that, they are also built for certification from the US Government Energy Star efficiency program, the Department of Energy Home Challenge program, and the FORTIFIED DisasterSafety program administered by The Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety. With all these strict standards, The Cottages on Thurman are the strongest, most sustainable, healthiest houses on the market today. A very tangible bonus that some people might overlook is these homes will cost the owners a fraction of the expense of neighboring houses in terms of Heating, Cooling, Lighting and Water Usage.

This has all been achieved by (ARC)form using an integrated Design & Construction approach that allows for these advances without driving up the cost of construction. The results are superior homes, that will hold their value, at an extremely competitive price in line with the average new houses in the market.

The original rendering done by our team to communicate the overall design to potential home buyers. The homes sold quickly and the new homeowners will be delivered a finished product that exceeds the early rendering in beauty +  function + value. Advanced tools such as these are critical to our process of eliminating the guesswork for our clients.
