North Penn House


Indianapolis, IN
3,500 square feet
2016
Type: Houses / Interiors
Theme: Tranquility in the Country
This new 3,500 square foot house is defined by the juxtaposition of its horizontal planes with the dramatic topography of the wooded site, including a sloping landscape at the rear of the house down to a meadow below.

A long roof with big overhangs, tall sliding glass doors, and Indiana limestone floors, which extend out to terraces, connect the indoors to the outdoors: the changing seasons become a vibrant backdrop to everyday life. Zinc panels and mahogany doors and windows combine with the light gray pavers in a modern, yet warm palette of materials.
