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.
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.
