An Urban Transformation

This year’s HGTV Urban Oasis 2018 is a Dutch Colonial house nestled in the vibrant community of Oakley, Ohio. The home is walking distance to shops, restaurants and parks and just a short drive from Cincinnati’s downtown nightlife and attractions. Local firm, Platte Architecture + Design, was selected to lead the architectural design for the project. The project all began with a cryptic phone call from a realtor who was looking for a team to renovate a dilapidated property. Platte was invited to tour the property. When asked what he thought could be done with the property, Kurt Platte remembers saying that the sky is the limit. Platte signed a contract before it was divulged that the client was HGTV. A few weeks later, Platte was sitting in his downtown Cincinnati office with the host of HGTV Urban Oasis 2018 and a project manager.
