Church Street Commons
New Harmony, Indiana

Located in historic New Harmony, Indiana, site of two early nineteenth century utopian experiments, Church Street Commons is a small infill development consisting of six single-family residences.

New Urbanist in plan, all houses face the three perimeter streets and back up to a central alley for service and vehicular access.

Designed in a "Neo-Harmonist" vernacular, the houses consist of simple gabled components using a material palette of indigenous brick and wood siding. Stain colors are borrowed from noteworthy local precedents.

Sustainable principles are utilized throughout. The south facing individual courtyards reinforce the connection to this town of beautiful spaces and gardens.
