Inspired by its location, the Gibson Home was my first modern residence. The home was for Adam and Cathy Gibson. Their need to explore a larger home seemed timely with growing children and Adam’s home business growing.
An empty lot near in the Forest Hills Neighborhood, near Broadripple, offered an opportunity for a home to frame a series of trees beyond, while securing a relationship to the street. More importantly, was the reclaimed stone that our client rescued to be the catalyst for a home they wanted for their future.
The design took advantage of the sites length. The elevation reveals three view corridors at varying depths, with their rooms and personal spaces anchoring the back and the most public in the front. It’s multiple levels meet at a center core that organizes how one moves through the space and programs are divided.
