House for Two Artists and their Children

Bloomington, IN

The design of the House for Two Artists and Their Children responds to the Owner’s desire for an open plan house with a modern relaxed aesthetic. The project includes an extensive renovation of an existing mid-twentieth century house as well as a new second floor addition over the existing carport. The new sloped roof forms provide a dynamic dovetailing of the main and upper level living spaces. The main level is an open plan with entry foyer, living room, kitchen/dining room/ outdoor deck, laundry room, powder room, and master bedroom suite. The upper level houses two bedrooms, a studio, and two bathrooms. The lower level has a sound studio, family room, guest suite, and storage/utility room. Large windows throughout the house provide dramatic views and opportunities for ample natural light. The original limestone veneer is retained.
