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!

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!

Lumber Price Explosion

The lumber price explosion has been a hot topic for about 9 months, and the story continues.

Up to now, we have blamed COVID mainly, but also the cold weather event in Texas.  But there are some other factors at play also, per this attached article from Visual Capitalist.

These extraordinary events and costs are certainly affecting the construction industry.  However, all indicators are telling us that the design + construction markets remain as hot as ever.  How much will these circumstances affect your decision to renovate or build new?
