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.

A 1965 European Style cottage located in the unique Williams Creek neighborhood had suffered years of neglect and at one point, the possibility of a complete tear down was discussed. Insert new high‐profile art patrons paired with an uninhibited seasoned designer and the idyllic house is once again a storybook cottage and a welcomed rebirth to surrounding neighbors.

Perfectly suited to the clients, the formal interior layout provides the necessary walls for displaying the well curated art collection. Thoughtful  attention  was given to every detail of this renovation. Finishes, custom furniture and casework were balanced to compliment both the art and the bones of the original house 

A bold design move to paint a library space teal was presented to the couple. First met with hesitation but fully trusting their interior designer, the finished space ensued a wow-factor of sophistication the modern couple loves.

In collaboration with Pulaski County Administration and Indiana Landmarks, Rowland Design worked to create options to save the Landmark Historic Pulaski County Courthouse from demolition. During the process, our design team completed a full building assessment examining the structural, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection along with the interior design and layout of each office.

The project was a collaborative effort including exploratory research of the building along with outreach and responses from administration, and public input meetings. The final building assessment produced information required to develop project budgets and action plans. These plans proposed the stabilization of the building’s exteriors and to create an efficient and thermally comfortable interior office space for county staff.

The final presentation, held during the joint Commissioner and County Council session, proposed that building revitalization presents the most economically feasible solution all while preserving a magnificent structure for generations to come.

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.

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 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.

When PFW opened its doors in 1964, Kettler Hall was the first and only building on the campus. The 52-year-old building required a much-needed renovation to its first-floor lobby and West wing. Admissions, financial offices and student advising are presently housed in the hall.

Current layouts lacked cohesiveness and were underutilized. Focus on ‘student success’ was PFW’s core goal. 15,000 square feet of space was reconfigured to allow greater student access and enhance circulation as well as establish a centralized student waiting area. The new central hub provides a hang-out space where students can collaborate and recharge. Designed as a technology rich space, a wide variety of seating configurations supports the needs of contemporary student life.

Fresh finishes and architectural elements bring energy and interest to the project while referencing PFW’s brand and culture.
