Esther at Clearwater is on the AIA Home Tour this fall in mid-September, so we hope we’ll see you there! Our wonderful client has been living in the home for almost a year. Final touches are rounding into shape, including some exterior details including new landscaping.
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.
We are excited about Lake Michigan Cottage currently in preliminary design. This is one of a series of residential wooded + lakeside retreats from southern Indiana to western Michigan that we have underway in design or construction. This particular bridge-like concept touches the sloping site very lightly and capitalizes on the best views to Lake Michigan. We are really enjoying the rigor/design exploration comparing how nature, program, and personality sculpts each project in a unique way. We’ll be providing project stories in the near future, so please check back for updates!
Our new design-build Craftsman Style Home in Broad Ripple has been completed as of mid-2017. Thanks to our most excellent clients for this unique opportunity to dial the Craftsman-Style up a notch on this historic Indianapolis street just a few blocks south of Broad Ripple Village.
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.
Simple Modern Bedroom Wing elevates over the landscape at dawn. We are preparing this project for the upcoming home tour this fall, so if you are interested in seeing the project first-hand, please stay-tuned. It sits on 20 acres and is not visible from any public street, so this is the time to experience #copperwood!
Midcentury Move In is 95% complete – exterior hardscape, southside privacy fence, exterior painting, porch screens, and landscaping along with some interior odds-and-ends are all that remain. Substantial completion has been achieved (this means the project is available for its intended use). It’s an exciting time on West 81st Street!
Keep on chopping wood at Copperwood – client living the dream taking advantage of a warm February day – little farmhouse in the distance. Check out the latest updates to the project page here.
This project was designed by HAUS and built by WERK | Building Modern, our sister construction management company. It is interesting to compare the projects we build versus the ones we do not build. This project is one of the most successful realizations of Architect’s design intent of all of our recent projects. Design concepts and alternatives along the way received the benefit of Architect daily oversight and clear communication at each step of the process, which is a major benefit of direct collaboration between Architect, trade contractors, and Owner. Direct, clear communication by less parties may also translate into less time, less cost, and higher quality.
New Modern Entry Bridge is progressing at Copperwood right on schedule. Bridge spans the front clerestory bay lower level walkout which provides an abundance of natural light to the lower level. Check out the project page for the latest comprehensive updates. We are really looking forward to finishing the final details around mid-September 2016 on this New Modern Home in Zionsville.
