The Bartlett Reflection Center at DePauw University, Greencastle, designed by CSO Architects, Inc.
The Bartlett Center for Reflection is a quiet, contemplative place in the DePauw University Nature Park, where faculty, staff and students can retreat for personal reflection. The 2,413-square-foot structure was designed for sustainability and to minimize its impact on the environment. It has achieved Gold level LEED Certification.
The Second Presbyterian Church, Indianapolis, is a classic gothic-style building that has been an Indianapolis landmark since 1949. BSA LifeStructures designed a new main entry for the church, renovated classrooms and meeting spaces, and added a music area, youth area and gathering space. The design draws upon the historic architecture, including the exterior of the addition, which is clad in limestone, clay tile and lead-coated and copper detailing, all consistent with the church’s original design.
The Indianapolis International Airport’s Midfield Terminal Operations/Emergency Center is a high-tech, high-security environment located just south of the air traffic control tower. It is designed to be compatible with the terminal, yet to have its own identity from architectural features such as the glass and pre-cast panels on the exterior and a cantilevered roof that mimics airplane wings.
