Rowland Design collaborated closely with the client’s contractor to invent a new custom home that was smart, energy efficient and stylish. The family’s Kentucky and Florida roots were considered during the design development resulting in an eclectic and contemporary aesthetic suited for the young family.

The client desired a home that blended seamlessly with the existing character of its surrounding village neighborhood. A soft neutral color palette was used cohesively through out the home and provided a back drop for bolder feature walls. Key finishes such as wide plank oak floors, black iron and gold fixtures added a layer of sophistication and warmth.  

The new build has a thoughtful blend of public and private spaces. Large windows combined with a generous screen porched offers a connection with the surrounding landscape.

Liberty Fund was founded in 1960 by Pierre F. Goodrich, a prominent Indianapolis lawyer and business man. The organization’s core mission is the preservation, restoration and development of individual liberty through investigation, research and educational activity. A prominent eight-acre site adjacent to US-31 in Carmel was selected for Liberty Fund’s new 50 person headquarters. The 61,000 square foot facility is their home base for the next half-century and its design is intended to reflect the timelessness of the organization’s purpose.

The glass clad research library facing West in the anchoring element of the new building. Thirty stainless steel sunscreens protect the library’s collection while providing a physical expression of the Liberty Fund mission. Individual screens represent a century of human history and is etched with names and events influential to liberty. The vast collection becomes evident as the library lighting lends a glow to the space as evening begins.

Rowland Design Master Planned the transformation of Breton Village Mall into a community center when it was acquired by Jade Pig Ventures in 1997. While existing lease agreements kept the full transition from happening earlier, most of that original plan has now come to fruition. Interior upgrades and a new main entrance kept the Mall current while incremental phases of the new plan came into being.

Challenges for the project included storm water management which is detained below a portion of the parking lot and the fact that the property is divided between two separate municipalities.

The renovation has placed the property at the top of the local high-fashion market. The success of the new, modern structures is reflected in the attractive mix of high-end national and local tenants including Anthropologie, West Elm, Houlihan’s, Lululemon, Jos. A. Bank, Talbot’s, Orvis, Free People and Leigh’s.

The terminal renovation at the Columbus Municipal Airport replaced an outdated 1980’s décor with a modern updated design suitable to today’s demands. Light fixtures reminiscent of aircraft wings make an impactful statement as visitors enter the space toward open views of runway activity.  Paying tribute to the city it serves, custom wall coverings were conceived to highlight the world-renowned collection of architecture Columbus is known for.

Multiple spaces were configured to better distinguish them from others.  New carpet, lighting and furnishings were implemented to heighten the passenger experience.  The airport refresh also included the design of a conference room, conference and event spaces, new restrooms as well as a modernized pilot’s lounge.

Rowland Design created a comprehensive package of wayfinding and signage for downtown Indianapolis’ JW Marriott. The expansive building required unique solutions for exterior vehicular and parking garage signage as well as exterior identifiers and interior signage. Exterior signage was required to clarify and visually support multiple hotel flags, but not distract from the hotel’s dramatic architecture. 

The JW Marriott’s blue and silver exterior served as inspiration for the outdoor experiential graphics. Simple but sophisticated interior way finding enhances the design of the property while improving guest movement through the tower in and adjoining buildings.

Rowland Design was part of a design team enlisted by the Crow Valley Golf Club to recapture the contemporary design aesthetic of the original Harry Weese architecture. Of equal importance to the ultimate club located in the Quad Cities vicinity was to place a stronger emphasis on the informal dining area while increasing seating arrangement flexibility. A unique aspect of the design response for a club environment was to establish display cooking, something seldomly seen at the time for a private club.
