Rowland Design provided architecture, interior design and experiential graphic support in the completion of the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Indiana’s new headquarters. Starting as a multi-tenant office building and hardware store, the 1433 North Meridian Street building was transformed into more than a home for the nonprofit. The general flexibility and cheerfulness of the space help engage the staff in forwarding their mission. The strong street presence along Meridian Street, a grand, welcoming entryway, a new unifying two-story atrium, large community/gathering space, demonstration kitchen, and open, well-lit office spaces were all designed with community engagement in mind.

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.

Working in partnership with George Ridgeway of the Cook Group, Rowland Design was charged with altering the 1922 wing of the historic former Central Avenue Methodist Church to function as the new Indiana Landmarks headquarters. The challenging project included a new principle entrance requiring the removal of an existing floor. A new elevator was strategically placed to make most of the building’s 22 levels wheelchair accessible.

The client desired a more contemporary office design to demonstrate the coexistence of thoughtfully designed new work within historic structures.  New lighting and HVAC systems were discreetly placed within existing ceiling heights as well as the installation of a sprinkler system and air conditioning in a building that previously had neither.

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.
