This blog serves as a documentation to the design and construction process of a new affordable, modern home in the Fountain Square neighborhood of Indianapolis. From design through construction, this home demonstrates a new potential for the neighborhood, reflecting on both its history and its artistic and cultural identity.
701 Shelby demonstrates that design does not simply have to follow previous parameters but can become a reflection of its time and of its location. This home is designed for the urban dweller: compact in size, energy efficient, affordable, contemporary, and responsible.
