Rowland Design’s new Indianapolis headquarters began life as a one story, nearly windowless office building. It’s location on the newly developed Indianapolis Cultural Trail demanded much more.

Rowland Design Before and After

 

As a second floor was added, the building’s orientation was changed to focus on and welcome the activity of the trail.  Fundamentally designed for efficiency and to enhance our design process, 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 and business support staff.

Exterior Before and After

Driven by functionality, both the interior and exterior celebrate the construction materials used as underlying structure and refined finishes.  Sunshades on the exterior of the building cut energy consumption while they add depth to the façade and provide a kinetic experience to users of the trail.  A paneled wall in one conference room glides away to become the enclosure of another.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Rowland Design Relocating to 702 North Capitol Avenue

INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana – Rowland Design will be relocating to 702 North Capitol Avenue, effective November 30.  Building upon a rich 45-year history in Indianapolis the design firm will remain downtown, moving from its current Lockerbie Square location to a newly renovated space along the Indianapolis Cultural Trail.

Rowland Design is partnering with local developer Loftus Robinson to rehabilitate the property which includes a complete overhaul of the interior, reinforcement of exterior walls and the addition of a second story. The 11,200 square foot space is designed toward sustainable initiatives and will pursue LEED Silver Certification. “After working with Rowland on several other projects, we knew this partnership was the right fit for the redevelopment of this building.  A shared vision for what this structure, and really the surrounding area, could become ultimately guided our plans for the space,” said Drew Loftus of Loftus Robinson. 702 North Capitol will be Rowland Design’s third investment in downtown Indianapolis.

“We were able to tailor the entire space to better meet our needs. Our goal was to create an extremely collaborative environment through an open concept studio and a range of flexible meeting spaces,” says Sarah Schwartzkopf, President of Rowland Design. “The city of Indianapolis is part of who we are and remaining downtown was especially important to us. We’re energized by the potential of this up and coming area and very excited about our new location within the city.”

Specializing in architecture, interior design and graphic design, Rowland Design’s new office will showcase the integration of these three disciplines.

Cultural Trail Opens in Indianapolis

The Indianapolis Cultural Trail officially opens with a ribbon-cutting event today, May 10.  A legacy of philanthropists Gene and Marilyn Glick, this urban bike and pedestrian path connects the five downtown cultural districts, in addition to serving as the downtown hub for the central Indiana greenway system.

Along the trail, at 702 N. Capitol Avenue, is the new office of Rowland Design.  The building will receive a complete overhaul and second story addition before the design firm moves in this fall.  The entrance of the new building will be relocated from its east face on North Capitol Avenue south to face the Cultural Trail.

Rowland Design was also involved in the development of a pocket park on the south/west corner of Virginia Avenue and Merrill Street, abutting the Cultural Trail.

Two years ago, the Merrill Street Townhomes Homeowners Association and Canfield Row Homeowners Association partnered to purchase this vacant lot which was originally slated to become a parking lot with a curb, disrupting the Cultural Trail design.  The group determined that the area would be enhanced by a green space; one that all who live, work and visit Fletcher Place and Holy Rosary Neighborhood would benefit by.

Last August, Rowland Design, in partnership with Merrill Street Townhomes Homeowners Association and Canfield Row Homeowners Association, submitted a design concept to Keep Indianapolis Beautiful for the IPL Project Greenspace “Pocket Park” grant program.  In November, the team was one of six awarded a grant to develop a pocket park project in 2013.

In preparation for the opening of the Cultural Trail, the team organized a planting day that was supported by volunteers from Calvin Fletcher’s Coffee, Bluebeard and Mozzo Apartments.  A large part of the park was installed on May 4.

Join the celebration on Saturday, May 11, and “Get Down On It” to enjoy more than 75 different programs and activities planned along the Trail.

This past Friday Indianapolis lost a woman who in many ways added a whole lot of sparkle to this lovely city. Philanthropist Marilyn Glick passed away from cancer at age 90. Although I have never met Marilyn or her husband Eugene it is impossible to drive around Indianapolis and not see the impact that the couple has made.

 

On Saturday Jax and I enjoyed a wonderful early morning walk on the Indianapolis Cultural Trail, a legacy of Marilyn and Eugene.  The air crisp and the ground dewy, I couldn’t help but to stop mid stroll for a moment and reflect. I hope to live a life of generosity and make a positive impact on my community the way the Glick’s have done. Downtown Indianapolis truly is a more beautiful and livable place due to their sincere charity.

Ralph Stickman once said, “What makes greatness is starting something that lives on after you.” With that thought, in my eyes, Marilyn Glick will forever be a great lady!
