These clients approached us with an idea to build a new modern home in an established Bloomington neighborhood. After early discussions with our design team, we helped develop an exciting model that the homeowners fell in love with. Our architect, Ernesto Casteneda led the charge from concept to construction drawings. The result was a striking, contemporary home situated perfectly on the building lot. One of the most architecturally interesting building features of this home is the cantilevered living space and deck. We worked with structural engineers and framers to ensure this unique feature could be executed to our shared vision. This floating volume is adjacent to the other feature of interest in the A606 weathering Steel wall treatment. Also known as corten, this steel is meant to patina over time, becoming warmer and evermore interesting visually.
Our client wanted us to design a small cabin and workshop that maximized views from the property while maintaining the Brown County and southern Indiana aesthetic. Ernesto Castaneda, from our design team, created a space that fits seamlessly into the landscape and does not loom large on the land, while at the same time, accessing views of the surrounding hills and fields from all sides of the cabin.
Our clients purchased this Lake Monroe lot from us and enlisted Loren Wood Builders to design and build their family home. Our architect Ernesto Castaneda worked with them to create a sharp, modern design that is softened by warm material choices and colors. The LWB design team worked with our clients to create interesting spaces inside the home.
We were commissioned by a client to build out a van they had purchased to accommodate their travel needs. Our client, being a traveling nurse and avid rock climber, needed a space that would accommodate both of those pursuits, while still feeling like home.
