    This six-week project studied the reuse of a silo. Located along a biking and walking pathway called the Monon Trail, the mixed use development will attract the attention of trail users. A unique form carves into the silo, functioning similarly to a shelf. The 34 live/work units, studio, and gallery space lie parallel with the trail allowing recreational activities to occur in conjunction with art creation.

    contrasting appendageThe fluid curves of this artist live/work development directly oppose the rustic silo, which is encompassed by the new structure. The contradicting qualities of the silo help to enrich and complement the modern appendage.

    connecting with the trailThe glass facade showcases the life and work of the artists that dwell within the units. The upper gallery space is also transparent, fostering mystery and interest from the Monon Trail. The intersection of the separate functions of recreation and creativity opens up an opportunity for overlap, the new piece as an extension of the trail.

    R E U S E. Understanding the importance of the existing building and incorporating the new design in a functional way. Rehabilitating the now vacant structure, restoring it to a new level of functional vitality. Adapting how the new ideas fits into the existing context.

    L I N K A G E. Shipping containers connect to the north facade, plugging into the mechanical and electrical systems, which is centrally located within the existing building. Condensing these utilities allows for less modifications in the shipping containers and minimizes waste and energy consumption. A grid of steel columns is used as an additional support system for the units themselves.

    S U S T A I N A B I L I T Y. Giving people the option to live in a responsible community. Personal heating and cooling systems give each inhabitant control and flexibility over their own space. Allowing people to form their own vision of how to be a responsible member of a sustainable community. Instilling a respect and appreciation for the environment through use of outdoor spaces and landscape.

    C O H O U S I N G. People committed to living as a community. Sharing space and facilities to encourage social interaction. Balance between individual and group spaces give people freedom to live the way they desire.

    C O N T E X T. Located in downtown Indianapolis, there is a three-story brick building that is vacant on the site. The canal is located within walking distance and the site is approximately a mile from Monument Circle.

    P L U G

    PLUG was a nine-week competition sponsored by the firm Gresham Smith and Partners. The competition focused on the theme of sustainability through cohousing. Initially, the approach was to look at materials that were mass- produced with little waste, focusing on the shipping container. The 10 x 40 module of a shipping container is sufficient for private living space, which is then supplemented by larger communal spaces for cooking, dining, and gathering. By placing two shipping containers together, a module of 20 x 40 is created, giving more ample space for a family. The site is located in downtown Indianapolis with an existing 3-story brick building on the SW corner.

Balance is achieved between individual and group spaces, giving people freedom to live the way they desire. The rehabilitation gives the once vacant building vitality.
