Nestled in 50 acres of densely wooded land, this unique residence overlooks a private lake surrounded by gently sloping terrain. Designed in 1964 by architect Don Wood, the dwelling shares the water with one other house both originally built as primary residences for young families.  

While embarking on the complete renovation and addition to this family home, it was paramount for the current designer to successfully retain the overall vernacular and character of the original design.

Originally constructed in 1911, Rowland Design thoughtfully transformed this Warfleigh neighborhood vintage farmhouse. The interior was selectively demolished to make way for an updated plan catered for contemporary living while retaining character elements of the original building.

Second floor living space was repurposed for modern living. An intimate home office niche featuring a continuous window series was added to afford views of the front lawn. A field stone fireplace appropriate to the home’s vintage was also added and serves as a focal point for the central living space.

Located in Broad Ripple, Joy’s House is a non-profit day care center for adults and a relief space for their families. An ambitious renovation and expansion resulted in tripling the existing footprint while remaining sensitive to the original farmhouse architecture and neighboring bungalows.

LEED silver guidelines were implemented during the design process in conjunction with other components that reduce maintenance and enhance sustainability. A state of the art kitchen, dining area and library combined with multiple lounges make Joy’s House a pleasant and inviting experience for the end user.

Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity worked closely with Rowland Design to renovate their existing Wabash College chapter house with the primary goal of updating and opening up the interior. Carefully selected interior walls were removed from the formal living and entry spaces to provide interactivity between brothers. A neutral base color palette punctuated with bold hues of eggplant and rust contribute to the living room’s sophisticated but comfortable aesthetic.

The Fraternity’s historic photos and relics found a permanent place on new casework and built-in shelving. The project was successfully completed over a summer season in time for the fall semester move in.

The Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority at Indiana University desired updated spaces for the women living in the chapter house to study and socialize. The spaces were to be relaxed and comfortable while reflecting the unique character of the sorority and its historic house. Understanding their vision, Rowland Design re-imagined the main entry, formal living room and library spaces to meet the project objective.

The heavy wood paneled entry was transformed into a warm and inviting sitting area with a sophisticated feel that also proudly displays photography of the current chapter members. The sorority’s brand was emphasized by implementing chapter colors into the formal living room’s finishes and furniture. A more transitional feel was necessary for the library space which features artwork and framed pictures displaying the sister’s history and academic achievements.

Renovating Butler University’s Alpha Phi house involved creatively reconfiguring the existing plan to offer greater function and effective use of space.  Existing formal and informal living were reassigned moving formal areas forward and casual ‘hang out’ spaces towards the back of the house.  The second-floor media room was refreshed allowing a more functional lounge. A custom banquette was created for the informal study and custom cubbies were fabricated for the new mail area.

A newly curated color scheme of soft warm hues was combined with preppy blues to enliven the home and reflect the energy of the women who live there.
