Open Riser Architectural Stair

Open riser architectural stair is now complete for Lakeside Modern Cottage.  In fact, this is just one of many custom details for this major renovation project.

Heavy timber treads are Eastern White Pine with water-based polyurethane finish.  Stringers are Poplar glue-ups in satin black.  Cable-rail system is assembled from a pre-manufactured kit-of-parts.

Most certainly, we’ll be sharing a lot more in the coming months as our clients settle-in.  Lake Lemon will be hopping this summer, so check back!

Modern Lakehouse Feature

One of our favorite publishers called this week, and will feature a story about modern lakehouse, “Esther” that they’ll release in April. 

Concurrently, we had been planning a late winter trip to gather missing key shots.   Equally important, we want to finish our own story about the project.  Happily, we were able to get the missing information and share with the editors. 

This was our second official collaboration with this most talented client – and we hope not the last!  

Please check-back in late March, as we’ll plan to highlight the story at release!  Indianapolis Monthly April 2019 – Home of the Month “Healing Waters”.

Auto House

Vintage muscle cars  make themselves at home in this new Midcentury Modern auto house completed in the Lakeside Woods Neighborhood within the Traders Point on the northwest side of Indianapolis; one piece of a master plan to comprehensively update a 1950’s Mid-Mod property.

HAUS designed the structure to compliment the original residence in form and style.  Chiefly, garage provides abundant natural light for showcasing client 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.

New Modern Renovation Williams Creek

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) 🙂

Dining Room

We have completed some new photos in the Dining Room and other areas for the Classic Irvington Modern Tudor project.  We will be posting more updates in the near future, so stay-tuned for more #modern #interiors.

The front area of this labor-of-love has remained virtually unchanged since 2002, having been part of the initial Phase One work that was started in 1998.  Dining chairs are Jacobsen Series 7 with custom-made dining table by WERK | Building Modern.  Buffet table is from IKEA, and the Eames Lounge and Ottoman with black leather and Cherry veneer acquired from Herman Miller in 1994.  The two large art pieces were commissioned from local artist, Kyle Ragsdale in 2005 – the blue and yellow oil pieces on canvas were artist’s interpretations of desired color palette, size, and theme for each piece, which had predetermined locations in-mind.
