Sleep Number

The client originally wanted to the construction of a new building for its Sleep Number location. However, due to strict local zoning restrictions on Chagrin Boulevard in Woodmere, Ohio, a new structure would have to be moved considerably farther back on the property, significantly extending the frontage and adversely affect store’s visibility. So the owners sought Nyman’s counsel on how adhere to the building codes, but get a new building on the existing footprint. Nyman’s ingenious solution was to demo the build, leave its foundation, utilizing it for the construction of a new building envelope (i.e. walls, roof). After careful research, Nyman learned that doing so does not violate local building codes, giving the client the best of both worlds: a “new” building with ideal frontage!
