A Home For The Ages.

Most of you know I'm a huge fan of mid-century modern and contemporary architecture. I am enthralled by designs of the early 20th Century, captivated by the work of local designer and builder Avriel Shull, in awe of the breathtaking spaces of I. M. Pei, and left in tears when in the presence of work by van der Rohe.

Yes, we are blessed to have several shining examples of historic and wonderful architecture here in Central Indiana, partiularly if one is willing to drive an hour south of Indianapolis to Columbus, Indiana. (Architectural tours are available in Columbus. HERE is information.) But most of what we know and love is older, more seasoned work.

So it's very exciting when I come across something new. Something fresh. Something local and modern.

This week's Indianapolis Star features an amazing home right here in Central Indiana. I'm inspired. I believe it's an example of early 21st Century architecture and design that will stand the test of time. We may look back in 50 years and remember when. Let's just work to keep it in good hands so that it doesn't become the subject of a story of "How I found The Rehab Project of the Century."

Best wishes to the homeowners. You did really, really good.
