Copperwood Field Coordination is progressing through the cold weather – Derek coordinating design details with framing crew.  The retractable hood came in handy – and it’s definitely a good look!  See project portfolio here.

Home Spa Experience Essentials

WERK Home Spa Featured in Article, “10 Essentials for Enjoying a Spa-Like Experience at Home“.  This bathroom remodel was part of a comprehensive residential addition.  Unique characteristics of this spa include the adaptive-use of the original 1930’s glass tile and cast iron tub into a more efficient, modern design.  Vanity is a custom-made open-legged table for a furniture look and more open feel in a relatively small main floor bath.  Original double-hung window was replaced with obscure glass block.

Copperwood Ground Breaking

Copperwood Ground Breaking – construction is underway in Zionsville on this Dwell-inspired site-specific home designed by HAUS | Architecture For Modern Lifestyles.  Unique features include Airstream porte-cochere + Airstream acting as Home Office and Guest Suite and table tennis arena in the lower level.

The design is a balance of energy-efficiency and client goals/budget expectations for this particular location and this particular site.  You cannot see this project from any public street, as it is buried on a heavily-wooded 12-acre plot filled with habitat and some wetlands.  Please stay-tuned for updates on the particulars of this project as the construction progresses in 2016!

Custom Bunk Beds

C’mon now, everybody can use some Custom Bunk Beds

This design negotiation between daughters and father ended in a successful compromise for all.  Daughters requested all pink with windows and shutters.  Father proposed, “…how about something simpler and neutral including some nooks to display stuffed animals and the like?  We can always add pink pillows and accessories.  Then if you decide you want to change-up the color, it can be done with ease.”

Thanks to summer intern Alex Webber for building this bad-boy.
