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.
Bloomington Cohousing is the first cohousing neighborhood in Indiana. It is a neighborhood on the southwest side of Bloomington centered around intentional community living. The neighborhood has twenty-six homes and community common spaces throughout. Out of the five floor plans available this is our Garden Cottage and currently is our model home.
This workshop/barn, designed by Springpoint Architects, was a really exciting project for us. It is situated on a rural site on edge of Lake Monroe, on somewhat tricky topography for a barn. The designers took advantage of the grade change to create a basement storage area along the downhill side of the barn, while the main floor has an expansive workspace, restroom, tool rooms, and hardware storage.
This home in Brown County is nestled in the woods near Yellowwood State Park. Our clients worked with Delv Design out of Indy for the architectural drawings and we were super excited to bring their vision to reality.
