Vintage muscle cars  make themselves at home in this new Midcentury Modern garage structure completed in the Lakeside Neighborhood near Traders Point on the northwest side of Indianapolis; one piece of a master plan to comprehensively update a 1950’s Mid-Mod property.  It is designed to compliment the original residence in form and style, while providing abundant natural light and showcasing client’s collection while doubling as a party barn.  The new freestanding structure is what you see from the primary residence elevated open-concept living space, so it’s not just garage, but new property focal point.
