We applied for and received a variance to expand the existing upper levels living component so that it becomes the predominant use from a square footage perspective. City also approved the Regional Center application without resistance or remonstrance.
We are looking forward to completing the balance of the design for permitting and starting the construction phase. Please see the project page for more images and ongoing storyline. We’ll be adding updates as we do, so please check-back!
Oct 2022, Indianapolis: Tom Wechsler proves he still has the magic touch at the recent bocce ball tournament held near Fletcher Place in Holy Rosary neighborhood. Will anyone be able to challenge the STW in 2023? Stay tuned!
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!
After about a 16-month construction process, the much anticipated move-in process finally began in late mid-October 2018. For sure, after our clients have some time to get settled-in we’ll share more of the interiors. In the meantime, we’ll be adding design process and renderings to the story as a placeholder. HAUS helped client with comprehensive site planning and architectural design concepts, including a detailed interior design vision.
This project is rooted in tradition, but distinctly modern. Please check-out the story here.
Our new design-build Craftsman Style Home in Broad Ripple has been completed as of mid-2017. Thanks to our most excellent clients for this unique opportunity to dial the Craftsman-Style up a notch on this historic Indianapolis street just a few blocks south of Broad Ripple Village.
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.
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.
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

11 Parental Suites of our Dreams
And if parents finally had the right to their own space for cocooning?
The Romantic Suite:
The decorative element of strength in this Shabby Chic bedroom suite is of course the raw barn door. Sanded and whitened to match the minimalist and romantic style of the room, she separates the sleeping quarters from the spa. The white walls and big mirrors placed behind the bed bring in a light that almost seems poetic. We will particularly salute the ingenious sliding door system that allows for a flexible gain of space.
The design proposal for North Meridian Historic District Party Space transforms the backside of this home to make inside-outside connections. The party space is the main driver for this home design, which includes an all new interior, a new rear patio and grill area, a new outdoor pavilion space, and a space for pull-in Airstream/bar. The design concept works to enhance the existing traditional Colonial Revival design elements with a slightly modern interpretation to the rear. This is done by opening the new kitchen space directly to the inside and outside entertainment areas.
Design for new brownstone inspired development is coming along in mixed-use area of Indianapolis. Client is currently living in a suburban gated community and is interested in pursuing a different lifestyle-living arrangement in the future (walkable community).
This year our clients are honored to be participants in the 10th Annual Broad Ripple Historical Home Tour! Construction was substantially complete just in-time to let the community at-large take peek inside this newly-renovated, light-filled space. Thanks to the entire team that made it happen!
