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!

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.

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”.

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.

New Modern House Ditch – Midcentury Entry Porch Progress

Thermal modifying wood is a technology that improves the resilience of wood products used in exterior conditions and can be used on most wood species.  Our client at #Copperwood inquired about the technology and if we could use it at their home – which we did.  On that project, we used thermally-modified Ash.  Client for this project was so impressed by the beauty and resilience after visiting Copperwood, they requested something like it here – in this case, thermally-modifed Poplar was used, provided by a local source who learned about the technology from HAUS/Copperwood.

North Meridian Historic District Party

The design proposal for North Meridian Historic District Party Space transforms the backside of this home to make inside-outside connections.  The party space is the main driver for this home design, which includes an all new interior, a new rear patio and grill area, a new outdoor pavilion space, and a space for pull-in Airstream/bar.  The design concept works to enhance the existing traditional Colonial Revival design elements with a slightly modern interpretation to the rear. This is done by opening the new kitchen space directly to the inside and outside entertainment areas.
