Brick Modern House

Monon Trail

Brick Modern House is located just south of Holly Creek in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Our clients, a family of four, have purchased this prime location to build a new 3,000sf home to raise a family.  Accordingly, we have positioned the primary living spaces to capitalize on the gorgeous overlook views west and north.

This project will include a photovoltaic solar array sized to achieve net-zero on this 100% electricity-powered project.  Throw-in the terrazzo floors and other low-maintenance materials, and we have a recipe for a low-carbon, resilient, sustainable project!
