Eclectic Italian Renaissance Addition is located on historic Washington Boulevard in Indianapolis, Indiana – one of the City’s most beautiful historic neighborhoods.
Our clients have lived at this location for 40+ years, and they intend to stay there as long as possible. So to support that goal, we have collaborated with them to design a new main level master suite and a new accessible entrance on the rear of the home.
Please see below for the design process.

Design Process – Eclectic Italian Renaissance Addition:
It was important to our clients that we respect and enhance the existing Eclectic Italian Renaissance architecture, and not introduce something foreign into the mix. However from a massing standpoint, it wasn’t obvious how to achieve the additional main level space. This was due to the tight setbacks on the north side and existing vehicular access drives/garage on the west. Then to the south, the Owner had cared for their gardens for years, and wanted to tread lightly on that side.
Please check-back later for updates! We’ll be sure to share details of the design and construction process.
