In the design of this low-lying house in Indianapolis, New York-based studio Deborah Berke Partners channeled its perception of modernism as it was understood during the 50s and 60s. Dubbed the 'North Penn House,' the building is structured as a familial residence. The architectural firm plays around with slender form, as well as "an overhanging roof and sliding glass doors."
The low-lying house design directly plays into the surrounding landscape — "a secluded wooded setting at the top of a hill, which leads down at the back to a meadow." By creating an utterly minimalist, single-story structure, the architects at Deborah Berke Partners were able to seamlessly integrate their project without taking away from the naturalist site.
