North Penn House Indianapolis, IN 2016

This modern 3,500 square foot house is defined by the juxtaposition of its rectilinear roof and the dramatic topography of the wooded site. We designed the house on a well-defined plinth of limestone pavers and introduced tall sliding glass doors to create the illusion that the long, flat roof floats over its base. The sliding glass doors also encourage movement and views between the interior and exterior. Zinc panels and mahogany doors and windows combine with the light gray stone pavers in a modern, yet warm palette of materials.
