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!
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.
Here is a sneak peek of New Modern House Ditch located on Ditch Road north of 96th (a couple lots north of the big radio tower). Owners have lived in the home since late 2016 and are settling-in. Landscaping and furnishings are taking root and we look forward to sharing more in the coming months!
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!
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!
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) 🙂
