This iconic French Second Empire structure was saved from demolition by Indiana Landmarks in 2016, in collaboration with a grassroots campaign dubbed the “Blockheads”.
The historic building c. 1882 was converted into 15 apartment units by local developer Architectural Renovators and stands as a testament to the community’s ability to form a strong collective voice to support historic building preservation. Our team created an urban streetscape design that provides building users with safe and convenient access to the upper and lower apartment unit entries, while maintaining a sense of historical authenticity. A private courtyard is located snuggly between adjacent buildings. Intricate details from the original brick chimneys are replicated in the brick details of the courtyard.
