Rowland Design Receives Top Honors in Three Categories at 2015 Monumental Awards

 

INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana – Rowland Design has been awarded the highest distinction, “Honor”, in three categories at the 2015 Monumental Awards. The firm was recognized in the Architecture and Interior Design categories for its work on 702 N. Capitol, and in the Innovative Reuse category for the Indianapolis Cultural Trail Headquarters and Bikeshare Operations Center.

The projects at 702 N. Capitol, Rowland Design’s office, and the Indianapolis Cultural Trail Headquarters and Bikeshare Operations Center both involved repurposing an existing structure to meet the needs of the new occupant which, in turn, helped promote redevelopment and growth along North Capitol Avenue.

Rowland Design’s Indianapolis headquarters began life as a one-story, nearly windowless office building. It’s location on the Indianapolis Cultural Trail demanded more. As a second floor was added, the building’s orientation changed to focus on and welcome the activity of the trail. Exterior sunshades cut energy consumption, while providing a kinetic experience to trail goers. Inside, all spaces radiate off the hospitality of the two-story lobby core. The ground floor houses conference and library functions, while the second floor is devoted to the design studio.

Across the street, a once uninhabited service station was transformed into a vibrant home base for the Indianapolis Cultural Trail Headquarters and Bikeshare Operations Center. Although the footprint of the building is small, the layout is efficient. Garage doors retract to create a seamless transition to the patio. The multi-function space includes administrative offices, an open work zone, and a conference room, as well as a custom bike maintenance and repair shop.
