Indiana’s 11th largest credit union engaged Rowland Design to create a new main operations center which supports multiple branch locations throughout the state. Building massing references rural forms and features shed roofs clad in Terne metal. Stone walls used both on the exterior and interior nod to the region’s limestone industry.

A central entry and core are flanked by two wings that are enhanced by a continuous monitor of clerestory windows flooding day light to the open offices below. The hub of the structure known as the collaborative core allows the building to be thoughtfully pre-planned for future expansions. The new facility also serves as the disaster operations center for the financial institution and is equipped with emergency generators to power the building should it be necessary.

Rowland Design, along with creative strategy firm Hendrix Rader Wise, was commissioned to assist with a new branding and imaging campaign for Logansport Indiana’s Security Federal Savings Bank. Fresh logos and brand identifiers were curated in conjunction with wayfinding, building signs and monument signs utilized at each branch and the headquarters anchor.

Renovations to the exterior of the headquarters building were a major part of the project. The existing headquarters was the connection of two dissimilar building styles, so a cohesive paint scheme was important to the exterior improvements. Entry canopies, landscaping, new windows and openings along with new metal wall panels were also included.

Edgeworth Laskey Properties LLC engaged Rowland Design to complete a tenant build-out and implement building standards for local tech company, E-gineering. The project included specialty lighting, patterned carpet and feature ceiling elements. E-gineering company branding is referenced throughout the space with adventurous graphics also designed by Rowland. 

The tenant desired a high-energy design for staff as it is often used 24 hours a day. A combination lounge/game room is integrated into the space.  

Once complete, Edgeworth Laskey again commissioned our design studio to design a new annex for E-gineering  located within the same building. E-gineering has been listed as one of the “Best Places to Work in Indiana” several years running.

Rowland Design worked with local NBC affiliated television station WTHR in the late 1990’s on the design of their reception, lobby and green rooms.  When it came time for a refresh, WTHR again turned to Rowland for a contemporary update.

The project objective was to conceive a clean, bright and modern space that referenced the company’s status as a regional communications leader. A New York City vibe is blended with a West Coast aesthetic to create a wow factor first impression to visitors.  

Outdated elements from the 1990s plan were deleted allowing for a complete redesign of the reception desk and surround.  The fresh design accommodates today’s work approach, while keeping entrance security a focus.

Design elements reflective of the WTHR brand are incorporated throughout the project reinforcing the company’s commitment to the local community.  Our team reinterpreted the existing lobby artwork with a large scale illuminated design piece with WTHR and NBC iconography.  A local graffiti artist was commissioned to create a bespoke two-story mural depicting distinctive Indianapolis landmarks.

Arduagh, a national glass container manufacturer, relocated their headquarters from Muncie, Indiana, to the satellite city of Fishers. The fresh facility provides a home to the more than 200 employees who are adjusting to the relocation as well as a new way of working. 

Leaving behind a sea of obsolete high walled cubicles, the new office promotes collaboration through an open floor plan with minimal separation and no enclosed offices. Unassigned touchdown spaces offer greater flexible work options.

Coming from a building with little to no natural light, the inclusion of daylighting in the new space was a vital design objective. This was achieved by incorporating glass fronted conference spaces along the building’s perimeter walls. The space was thoughtfully branded with graphic elements applied to expansive glazing as identifiers and coordinated with illuminated wall boxes.

The new corporate headquarters received new finishes and furnishings.  Modern styles blended with classic furniture provided a timeless contrast completing the design concept.

With a shift to a new location nearer to downtown Indianapolis the United Way of Central Indiana, known as UWCI, not only adopted a new address but a new corporate culture. The community-based organization embraced a fresh approach to its fundamental work desiring a more flexible, current and vibrant environment to not only create more efficient work space, but fully embody the energy and vision of the ‘New U’ mission.

Visitors enter the space past custom graphic wood elements that announce UWCI’s location and act as an extension of United Way’s branding. Office spaces highlight a neutral hues aesthetic that is punctuated with bursts of colorful accent walls further enhancing the vibrant and spirited surroundings.

Introducing natural daylighting into the space was a significant design consideration. An open concept plan was generated where workspaces rather than enclosed offices line the perimeter of the suite keeping windows free from obstruction. Encompassing the reception area are a mixture of flexible meeting rooms, conference rooms and enclaves.

Rowland Design’s Indianapolis headquarters building began its life as an unassuming one-story nearly windowless forgotten office building.  It’s prime location directly adjacent to the city’s Cultural Trail demanded much more from the existing real estate.

A complete second floor of studio space was added allowing expansive views towards downtown.  The building’s entrance orientation was re-focused parallel with trail activity and energy.  Fundamentally designed for efficiency and to enhance our design process, all spaces radiate from the two-story atrium hospitality lobby core.  The first-floor houses conferencing and a library while the new second story is devoted to the design studio and business support staff.

Driven by functionality, both the interior and exterior consciously reference the construction materials used, contrasting the underlying structure with refined finishes.  Exterior sunshades located above large glazing panels sustainably cut energy consumption while presenting a layer of depth to the façade and providing ever changing shade patterns during the day.  Notable interior features include an in house engineered and fabricated movable wall panel system allowing a variety of conference room configurations.

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.
