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!
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.
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!
We were happy to have had the opportunity to help our interior design colleagues and their client solve their design dilemmas with a solid design concept for a New Modern House in Meridian Hills at the SW corner of 75th & Central. It’s a great location and we wish them the best in the execution of the project.
New flood zone prototype design for a series of #modern #homes coming to a location near you. This series of 7 new homes is planned for a prime location in Marion County. Stay tuned for design and construction updates to come.
This Dwell Magazine article The House of a Lifetime examines how Philip Isaacson from Lewistown, Maine commissioned an architect to design their home in 1959. “You have to educate yourself when you select an architect,” Isaacson says. “You have to find one that has the right approach, an attitude that you can feel throughout his or her work. You have to appreciate that attitude and admire it enough to want them to carry it into the house.”
New Colonial Modern home to break ground this summer 2017 in Towne Oak Estates, Carmel just north of Coxhill Gardens. We have made efforts to stay within the spirit of the neighborhood covenants while offering our clients a touch of modern sophistication reflecting their personal tastes. Front elevation is highlighted by a modern entry featuring wood-clad Puja/home office. We will have the project page up-and-running soon, so please check back for updates – and a Vastu to you!
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) 🙂
Keep on chopping wood at Copperwood – client living the dream taking advantage of a warm February day – little farmhouse in the distance. Check out the latest updates to the project page here.
This project was designed by HAUS and built by WERK | Building Modern, our sister construction management company. It is interesting to compare the projects we build versus the ones we do not build. This project is one of the most successful realizations of Architect’s design intent of all of our recent projects. Design concepts and alternatives along the way received the benefit of Architect daily oversight and clear communication at each step of the process, which is a major benefit of direct collaboration between Architect, trade contractors, and Owner. Direct, clear communication by less parties may also translate into less time, less cost, and higher quality.
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.
Thanks, Henrybuilt, for recommending HAUS to new from out-of-town clients. We look forward to collaborating with Henrybuilt in the very near future for some expert, fully integrated “systems design”.
Henrybuilt is a design-driven company. We focus on the ‘whole solution’ – the integration of aesthetics, function, craft quality and your experience living with our product.
We design and build our products for those who are looking for that ‘just right’ feeling. Not only in terms of how things look, but in how the most important parts of a home work, wear and feel – every day.
The ‘just right’ feeling of Henrybuilt kitchens comes from a unique combination of system design, made-to-order personalization, and overall quality, which has helped position Henrybuilt among the top kitchen system companies in the world.
Sophisticated homeowners and architects are increasingly seeking the combined design and functionality of a high quality ‘system’ or ‘performance’ kitchen.
A system kitchen is the result of a seamless blend of industrial design and overall performance engineering that cannot be achieved through a traditional cabinetmaking approach. And when expertly done, the ‘system’ is invisible.
But, of course, most of us who want the benefits of a system also want flexibility and a customized solution – including the ability to adapt and integrate architecturally.
This is why Henrybuilt exists; to give you a complete solution, total quality, and a customized outcome.
The result is more architecturally integrated than other systems… and built to last.
An elegant space, designed for real life.
Not fragile or delicate, and intuitive and natural to use.
And not just for the kitchen, but for the whole house. Roughly half of our projects involve almost every room in the home.
We have completed over 3500 projects throughout North America, and each of them is completely unique.
We provide an expert, tightly focused design service that fits in well with the services provided by most architects and designers. We can also work directly with you as a homeowner, and we can recommend an architect in most areas, if helpful to you. We are comfortable and experienced working in a wide range of situations.
After gaining an understanding of your goals and priorities, we work with you to simplify the path to achieving an exceptional result. We then produce all the elements of your project in our own workshop, deliver them using our returnable container system, and provide direction and support for installation.
The first step is an initial planning conversation.
Very nice article from Design Sponge about Broad Ripple Bungalow – A Vibrant, Playful Home for a Creative Family in Indianapolis.
Article by Kate Oliver
When San Francisco transplants Alan and Deborah Leerkamp decided to lay down roots in the Midwest with young daughter Samuelle, they knew they’d be hard-pressed to find an open-concept home in a neighborhood where the vast majority of homes built in the 20s and 30s have remained untouched. Instead, they focused their efforts on finding a house in the best location: a place close to school and work with a strong sense of community, where they could walk or bike just about anywhere they needed to go.
Just a few miles north of a vibrant, rapidly shifting downtown Indianapolis, IN lies Broad Ripple Village, a walkable community long known for its tree-lined streets and traditional homes with coffee, groceries, breweries, and a great spot to brunch right around the corner. After finding a 1920s Craftsman in the heart of the neighborhood, Deborah, an art director and designer, began planning and sketching an entirely new layout that worked for their family and lifestyle — although you’d never guess such a colorful, open space was behind the front door of the quaint bungalow.
With the help of a local architect, Deborah’s vision for a welcoming, modern home came to life. By opening up the attic, exposing beams, and tearing out walls, she created a unified space that invited conversation and quality time for the close-knit family of three; a lively home where Samuelle would love growing up. The couple added unexpected, playful elements they dreamed of having in their own childhoods: a secret treehouse loft accessed by a rope ladder and a big yellow tube slide from the main level to the basement playroom for Samuelle and her friends (and sometimes adults, too!). The main living quarters consist of the open-concept great room, two bedrooms, bathrooms, and an office that feels proportionate to their family on a daily basis, but their nest can expand when the family needs a little extra space. A creative room with soaring ceilings connects the main house to a private guest loft for visiting family and friends.
The Leerkamps have created a home that is honest, approachable, and so uniquely them — a home that not only serves their needs, but one that brings them true joy. Their home is a reflection of who they are: welcoming, genuine, and warm people who seek a life well-lived. It serves as a reminder to break the rules sometimes, to create homes that truly represent who we are and make us smile when we open the door after a long day. —Kate
