Studio 804 undertook a project on the 400 block of Indiana Street in Lawrence's Pinkney Neighborhood, known for its historic significance. Despite challenges such as the adjacent flood zone and lack of an alley due to an easement, the studio recognized the location's potential. The house's scale and gabled forms were designed to harmonize with the neighborhood. The main level features an open living, kitchen, and dining area, with a bedroom suite opening to a quiet tree canopy behind the house. The second level includes a flexible space with a full bath and a self-sufficient accessory dwelling above the garage, enhancing living flexibility and potentially generating rental income.
Insulite Glass collaborated with Studio 804 to provide glass for the project. The house, expected to achieve LEED Platinum certification, aligns with Lawrence's long-term mission for sustainable development. The City of Lawrence and Studio 804 responded to housing market trends, adapting to a growing population with smaller household sizes and limited property availability. Community engagement revealed a willingness to explore smaller lots, houses, and accessory dwellings to address housing shortages and curb urban sprawl. This project contributes to the city's Horizon 2040 plan, informed by data and community input for sustainable and strategic development.
