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.

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.

In partnership with Ratio Architects, Rowland Design provided interior finish and furniture design for the phased renovation of the Butler University’s historic Hinkle Fieldhouse.  The essential goal of the project was to provide student athletes, staff and guests with modern amenities while maintaining the appeal of the existing period building.

Aesthetics for an important space named the Wildman Room were inspired by a 1928 yearbook, The Drift, which was the year the Fieldhouse was completed.  Notable features of the space include rich wood paneling, an Art-Deco bar along with a hand painted 1920’s style mural depicting life and times at the university.  A host of additional spaces throughout the building were also reconfigured and designed.

The goal of this collaborative project is to enhance student learning and engagement at the library.  The long wall along the window that once held 68 isolated, stationary study carrels incorporates design components reflective of the study habits and methods of today’s student. Research has shown that spaces that encourage collaboration and active participation increase the likelihood that learners will retain and be able to apply information later.

By using green and renewable materials and by drawing on natural themes in its design, the Learning Spaces project also is an expression of the campus commitment to the environment and sustainable practices.
