Live-Work Expansion Approved

Live-work expansion has been approved at 545 S East Street in the Fletcher Place/Holy Rosary Neighborhood by City of Indianapolis across from the Eli Lilly and Company headquarters.

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!

Curious Friend Stands Watch

Now that our excellent clients have moved-in to the Bridge House, they brought along their curious friend who stands watch!

Next it’s time to work-out the little kinks, including furnishings.  As art enthusiasts and collectors, Lance and Laura have made it a priority to furnish both interior and exterior with art – starting with this friendly fellow.

He seems friendly yet curious, exuding just enough authority to help keep the peace.

Jack is Happy about it

If anyone is Happy about ground-breaking at Back40House, Jack is! It’s always exciting to get a new project underway after a diligent design and planning process.

Jack didn’t even help with the design or permits, but he’s as excited as anyone (probably more) 🙂

Wood Siding Underway at Bridge House

Exterior wood siding installation is underway at Bridge House in Douglas, Michigan.

Here on the elevated porch we can see how the west fin-wall and soffits are coming together.  Soon thereafter, we’ll be installing the industrial metal panels in extra dark bronze and black.  Now that rough-ins and drywall are wrapping-up, we’ll be sharing the fun stuff (exterior + interior details + finishes)!

We are working through the finer details now, including final interior fixtures, finishes, and bridge details.  Stay tuned for more updates!

We are happy to report that framers have completed most rough-framing at Bridge House.

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”.

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.

Colonial Modern Complete

Modern Colonial north of Coxhill Gardens in Carmel is now complete!

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.

Lake Michigan Cottage First in Series

We are excited about Lake Michigan Cottage currently in preliminary design.  This is one of a series of residential wooded + lakeside retreats  from southern Indiana to western Michigan that we have underway in design or construction.  This particular bridge-like concept touches the sloping site very lightly and capitalizes on the best views to Lake Michigan.  We are really enjoying the rigor/design exploration comparing how nature, program, and personality sculpts each project in a unique way.  We’ll be providing project stories in the near future, so please check back for updates!
