A new Modern Villa urban home is in the works in the Old Northside neighborhood in Indianapolis and will be located at 1530 Broadway.
We’re grateful to be working on this excellent opportunity with our clients, a developer/builder and physician with two young children. Our client has been building homes for many years, most recently in Fall Creek Place. Although he has been working with other design firms on these projects, they decided that for their own dream-home, they would engage a more comprehensive design process with HAUS. Their goal was to design something unlike anything they have seen in Indianapolis, historic or new.
At our first design meeting, our client said, “I know we can’t do this in Indianapolis, but we really LOVE Parisian apartments and how they feel.” We asked, “What are the qualities of a Parisian apartment that you love?” “Tall ceilings, simple white walls, rich, textural wood floors, nicely-detailed doors, trims, transoms, tall windows with breeze blowing through white shear curtains, and vibrant modern art”, we agreed. “Well then, now that we have identified the qualities that create that ambience, why can’t we achieve it on your property, minus the view of the Eiffel Tower?”
This was the beginning of a design concept which evolved to blend traditional and modern into one cohesive solution. We’ll share the original concept diagrams and design development in the near future. Currently we are making some final design adjustments to the exterior in anticipation of IHPC-Indianapolis Historic Preservation Commission public hearing for final design approvals.
