Cigar Room Addition (2018)

We have recently completed a Cigar Room Addition for our clients in Brendonwood Historic District on Indianapolis’ northeast side.

Once again, we are working on a Midcentury Modern gem designed by the architects of the firm, Vonnegut, Wright, and Yeager.  In fact, we have learned that Edward Pierre of Pierre & Wright (at the time), designed the original Midcentury Modern home for the Indianapolis Home Show in 1954.  More recently, a prior owner made updates before selling it to our clients, who are local mental health professionals.

In essence, our clients simply wanted a cozy place to get away; an isolated retreat to play piano, listen to music, and smoke cigars.

Cigar Room – A Midcentury Modern Addition – Design Process

Background

Owner originally began the project design with Steve Zintel of Summit Design Group, but they were not able to finish the project, perhaps because their builder partner bowed-out.  So, HAUS, with WERK took those initial ideas and worked toward a final, simple solution respecting the pre-existing structure and Midcentury style.  We spent some time engaging a longer-term site plan that included some interesting ideas for outdoor space, but ultimately, the Owner priority was the Phase One Cigar Room project.

We will be sharing some renderings of the cool Master Plan ideas and other interesting tidbits before long, so please check back for these updates!
