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 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.
Our excellent clients at Treesdale Circle in Carmel are settling-in to their new modern home this summer having been in the home now for a little over a year. We look forward to showcasing more of this home including future phases down the road, as this project was designed with the long-view in-mind for this young, growing family!
This master stair was sculpted from original roof rafters that were salvaged from the roof demolition to create the new master suite at the Classic Irvington Modern Tudor project. This shot is from the top looking down within the modern addition on the back of the home. Stairs are open riser to allow light to pass through the addition north to south. Acrylic guardrail cladding provides safety + diffused light to adjacent spaces. Bars at landing prevent one from tumbling into yard.

We were happy to have had the opportunity to help our interior design colleagues and their client solve their design dilemmas with a solid design concept for a New Modern House in Meridian Hills at the SW corner of 75th & Central.

This Dwell Magazine article The House of a Lifetime examines how Philip Isaacson from Lewistown, Maine commissioned an architect to design their home in 1959. “You have to educate yourself when you select an architect,” Isaacson says. “You have to find one that has the right approach, an attitude that you can feel throughout his or her work. You have to appreciate that attitude and admire it enough to want them to carry it into the house.”
New Colonial Modern home to break ground this summer 2017 in Towne Oak Estates, Carmel just north of Coxhill Gardens. We have made efforts to stay within the spirit of the neighborhood covenants while offering our clients a touch of modern sophistication reflecting their personal tastes. Front elevation is highlighted by a modern entry featuring wood-clad Puja/home office. We will have the project page up-and-running soon, so please check back for updates – and a Vastu to you!
Another great design project is underway for this New Modern Renovation on property bordering Williams Creek. It may as well be a new home, as we are keeping only 20% of the existing house, but working to reclaim as much material as possible, and also integrate as many sustainable design opportunities as is feasible since our client desires a net zero solution. This property abuts Williams Creek but is actually in the Town of Meridian Hills. We look forward to engaging the beautiful site to achieve dramatic views and outdoor space – this view is from the wooded hillside (woods and wildlife not shown) 🙂
