Lake Lemon Update

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.

Most certainly, this comprehensive project leadership ensures design + construction alignment, including evaluation of design opportunities and alternatives along the way!

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.

Indian Head Park News

At last, we are excited to report that the new minimalist modern house at Indian Head Park is substantially complete!

In this case, we helped our client by conceptualizing and clearly communicating a comprehensive design vision inside and out.  In effect, this bold design leadership helped give client confidence to proceed forward with community approvals, building permits, and construction.

On Thanksgiving weekend, we were able to stop by for a visit to check-out the latest progress  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!

New Modern House Meridian Hills

We were happy to have had the opportunity to help our interior design colleagues and their client solve their design dilemmas with a solid design concept for a New Modern House in Meridian Hills at the SW corner of 75th & Central.  It’s a great location and we wish them the best in the execution of the project.

Construction Progress

We have a lot of projects underway with construction progress to report.  This project, New Modern House 3 located in Chicago, is coming along slowly but surely.  Original cement board siding has been substituted with brick masonry which is currently in-progress.  The original color palette remains intact and the dark colored brick was a nice choice.  Please check back for new updates as we try to keep up with all the new project news!

New Modern Renovation Williams Creek

Another great design project is underway for this New Modern Renovation on property bordering Williams Creek.  It may as well be a new home, as we are keeping only 20% of the existing house, but working to reclaim as much material as possible, and also integrate as many sustainable design opportunities as is feasible since our client desires a net zero solution.  This property abuts Williams Creek but is actually in the Town of Meridian Hills.  We look forward to engaging the beautiful site to achieve dramatic views and outdoor space – this view is from the wooded hillside (woods and wildlife not shown) 🙂

Keep Chopping Wood

Keep on chopping wood at Copperwood – client living the dream taking advantage of a warm February day – little farmhouse in the distance.  Check out the latest updates to the project page here.

This project was designed by HAUS and built by WERK | Building Modern, our sister construction management company.  It is interesting to compare the projects we build versus the ones we do not build.  This project is one of the most successful realizations of Architect’s design intent of all of our recent projects.  Design concepts and alternatives along the way received the benefit of Architect daily oversight and clear communication at each step of the process, which is a major benefit of direct collaboration between Architect, trade contractors, and Owner.  Direct, clear communication by less parties may also translate into less time, less cost, and higher quality.

Slow Architecture

Slow Architecture – We are intrigued by this article about “Slow Philosophy – doing things at the right speed/pace” and how it may apply to architecture.  We are saving it here for future reference.  It’s true that American society always seems in a big rush, and we sometimes feel pressured to go faster and faster.  Is faster better, or is it better to savor the journey, not just the finish line?

Slow Architecture - Therme Vals / Designed by architect Peter Zumthor
Slow Architecture – Therme Vals / Designed by architect Peter Zumthor

The Time, Cost, Quality trio is always a valuable thing to discuss with our clients.  Do they want it fast and cheap?  If yes, then the quality is going to be low.  Do they want high quality and a reasonable price?  Then time may be the sacrifice.  As with all design + construction projects, one needs to find the right balance of client priorities translated into the dream and then executed accordingly in built form.
