Nestled in the Trees

We are so happy how Grandview is turning-out (nestled in the trees).

The pre-existing tree canopy and lakeside location is such an idyllic setting.

So much work goes into dreaming and creating a work of architecture.  Working with our clients to come-up with the design concept, then the key details may only get you 25% there.

You have to have really great communication between Owner, Architect, and Construction Team from beginning-to-end to get you to the finish-line.  We are almost to a-hundred!

Crazy Details

Crazy details are coming together for this Scandinavian-influenced interior build-out in the Traders Point area.

We are not sure we have achieved this level of precision previously.  In fact, our trim carpenters told us that due to the intensity of the details on this project, we can only do one like this every three years.  We must have worn them out!

We can’t wait to wrap the final 10% and share.  This is a must-see, so please come back for a look later in the new year.

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”.

Dining Room

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.

Vibrant Playful Home Creative Family Indianapolis

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

When Deborah Jacobs and Alan Leerkamp moved to Indy from California, they captured Broad Ripple’s playful, artsy spirit in their bungalow just south of the main strip like they’d been living in the area for years.  That’s what happens – even if unintentionally – when great creative minds collaborate:  Deborah, an art director and designer who has refurbished the homes of Google employees, partnered with HAUS, a local architecture studio with a contemporary edge, on a six-month renovation project.  “They really get it,” says Chris Short, principal architect at HAUS.  “Most people don’t have those kinds of [creative] interests and skills.  We were speaking the same language.”
