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.

Cook Cup for Outstanding Restoration for the preservation of Hinkle Fieldhouse

Welcome Center

The new Welcome Center at St. Luke’s was designed to provide a more natural welcome point for guests. An obtrusive, stationary desk was removed and replaced with a movable welcome cart for a “concierge-like” feel. Because the new station is mobile, it can be relocated to any of the entrances to create a touchdown spot for various activities or events.

The main welcome area also includes space to display opportunities for involvement, as well as house courtesy items for members, such as hearing devices and children’s activity bags.

Signage and Wayfinding Package

Rowland Design developed a cohesive signage and wayfinding system to facilitate navigation throughout the building and more clearly identify spaces within.

West Passage

The West Passage project was implemented to solve the disconnect between various areas of the church as outlined in the masterplan. Pathway improvements, including new carpeting, lighting, and signage and wayfinding create better flow and unify the user experience from various entrance points. Large display panels with recessed monitors are dedicated to highlighting church missions and ministries.

Parking / Site Improvements

Improvements to the site and parking grew out of the masterplan. The current parking lot layout was unsafe and disjointed. The new plan purposefully connects the main structure with the youth building, addresses ADA concerns through an accessible lot, and creates an opportunity for concealed drop-off in future phases. 

Toilet Room Renovations

The 1950s restrooms at St. Luke’s were overhauled with a new finishes, fixtures, paint, and tile resulting in a modern aesthetic that compliments the newly designed adjacent West Passage.
