We are happy to report that Copperwood – New Modern House 1 has weathered its first year of occupancy. Our clients for this brand-new design/build project have lived in the home since October 2016 and we are looking forward to being featured on the AIA Indianapolis Home Tour in late September 2017. It’s always great to see old friends and meet new ones at the show, so we hope you’ll stop by for a visit! Check out the project page for the story.
Thanks, Henrybuilt, for recommending HAUS to new from out-of-town clients. We look forward to collaborating with Henrybuilt in the very near future for some expert, fully integrated “systems design”.
Henrybuilt is a design-driven company. We focus on the ‘whole solution’ – the integration of aesthetics, function, craft quality and your experience living with our product.
We design and build our products for those who are looking for that ‘just right’ feeling. Not only in terms of how things look, but in how the most important parts of a home work, wear and feel – every day.
The ‘just right’ feeling of Henrybuilt kitchens comes from a unique combination of system design, made-to-order personalization, and overall quality, which has helped position Henrybuilt among the top kitchen system companies in the world.
Sophisticated homeowners and architects are increasingly seeking the combined design and functionality of a high quality ‘system’ or ‘performance’ kitchen.
A system kitchen is the result of a seamless blend of industrial design and overall performance engineering that cannot be achieved through a traditional cabinetmaking approach. And when expertly done, the ‘system’ is invisible.
But, of course, most of us who want the benefits of a system also want flexibility and a customized solution – including the ability to adapt and integrate architecturally.
This is why Henrybuilt exists; to give you a complete solution, total quality, and a customized outcome.
The result is more architecturally integrated than other systems… and built to last.
An elegant space, designed for real life.
Not fragile or delicate, and intuitive and natural to use.
And not just for the kitchen, but for the whole house. Roughly half of our projects involve almost every room in the home.
We have completed over 3500 projects throughout North America, and each of them is completely unique.
We provide an expert, tightly focused design service that fits in well with the services provided by most architects and designers. We can also work directly with you as a homeowner, and we can recommend an architect in most areas, if helpful to you. We are comfortable and experienced working in a wide range of situations.
After gaining an understanding of your goals and priorities, we work with you to simplify the path to achieving an exceptional result. We then produce all the elements of your project in our own workshop, deliver them using our returnable container system, and provide direction and support for installation.
The first step is an initial planning conversation.
Very nice article from Design Sponge about Broad Ripple Bungalow – A Vibrant, Playful Home for a Creative Family in Indianapolis.
Article by Kate Oliver
When San Francisco transplants Alan and Deborah Leerkamp decided to lay down roots in the Midwest with young daughter Samuelle, they knew they’d be hard-pressed to find an open-concept home in a neighborhood where the vast majority of homes built in the 20s and 30s have remained untouched. Instead, they focused their efforts on finding a house in the best location: a place close to school and work with a strong sense of community, where they could walk or bike just about anywhere they needed to go.
Just a few miles north of a vibrant, rapidly shifting downtown Indianapolis, IN lies Broad Ripple Village, a walkable community long known for its tree-lined streets and traditional homes with coffee, groceries, breweries, and a great spot to brunch right around the corner. After finding a 1920s Craftsman in the heart of the neighborhood, Deborah, an art director and designer, began planning and sketching an entirely new layout that worked for their family and lifestyle — although you’d never guess such a colorful, open space was behind the front door of the quaint bungalow.
With the help of a local architect, Deborah’s vision for a welcoming, modern home came to life. By opening up the attic, exposing beams, and tearing out walls, she created a unified space that invited conversation and quality time for the close-knit family of three; a lively home where Samuelle would love growing up. The couple added unexpected, playful elements they dreamed of having in their own childhoods: a secret treehouse loft accessed by a rope ladder and a big yellow tube slide from the main level to the basement playroom for Samuelle and her friends (and sometimes adults, too!). The main living quarters consist of the open-concept great room, two bedrooms, bathrooms, and an office that feels proportionate to their family on a daily basis, but their nest can expand when the family needs a little extra space. A creative room with soaring ceilings connects the main house to a private guest loft for visiting family and friends.
The Leerkamps have created a home that is honest, approachable, and so uniquely them — a home that not only serves their needs, but one that brings them true joy. Their home is a reflection of who they are: welcoming, genuine, and warm people who seek a life well-lived. It serves as a reminder to break the rules sometimes, to create homes that truly represent who we are and make us smile when we open the door after a long day. —Kate
