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”.

Lake Lemon Update

Lakeside Modern Cottage at Lake Lemon is nearing completion and will be ready for 2019 boating season!

Without doubt, we are grateful to our clients for the chance to collaborate with them on comprehensive architectural design, interior design, and construction management (CM via WERK | Building Modern).

As a result, this project is realizing the full benefits of direct, daily communication between Architect, Trade Contractors, and Client.

Most certainly, this comprehensive project leadership ensures design + construction alignment, including evaluation of design opportunities and alternatives along the way!

Indian Head Park News

At last, we are excited to report that the new minimalist modern house at Indian Head Park is substantially complete!

In this case, we helped our client by conceptualizing and clearly communicating a comprehensive design vision inside and out.  In effect, this bold design leadership helped give client confidence to proceed forward with community approvals, building permits, and construction.

On Thanksgiving weekend, we were able to stop by for a visit to check-out the latest progress  Please check out the story here!

Master Stair

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.

Architectural Stair

Architectural Stair progress at Copperwood.  #ash #thermallymodified #stairlights #modern #architecture

To the left we were able to utilize the same thermally-modified Ash that was used for exterior cladding of bedroom and garage.  Then for the treads and risers, we used 2x structural pine to compliment the Ash and blend with the pine beams in the adjacent living space.  Handrail and guardrail above is black painted steel, and the translucent wall to the right is acrylic screwed to painted Poplar-wrapped studs (provides safety and diffused light).  Stair lights are evenly-spaced LED discs, connected to whole house lighting and smart-home system controlled via client’s smart devices.
