Minimalist Modern: Integration of architecture & landscape – Oct 6th – 2018

We are looking forward to our next home-tour event for 2018, coming up on Oct 6th. Sadly, this will be the last one for 2018, but stay tuned for more events in 2019.

This upcoming event will be hosted by Fernwood Botanical Garden + Buchanan Preservation Society, both are located in nearby Buchanan Michigan. If you haven’t been to this part of the world – we recommend the visit: the gardens are lovely [we adore the Patrick Dougherty Living sculpture]; and Buchanan is a picture perfect piece of Americana with two current National Register Historic Districts.

Soho House + Grey Goose Pool Party

We had a wonderful time partnering with Soho House Chicago and with our party sponsor Grey Goose hosting a summer soiree with Soho House Members. Everyone got to enjoy a private tour of the home and then sat down to a BBQ feast served family style on the back lawn. In between tours and feasting there were plenty of Grey Goose – Vodka cocktails served. Guest enjoyed their cocktails with some croquet of the lawn, swimming + lounging by the pool, meanwhile we soaked in and admired the serious display of period appropriate attire [caftans + turbans], we love even more that some brought, and made, wardrobe changes. If only every Saturday in summer had a soiree like this, we will just keep dreaming and in the meantime will share some of our favorite photos from the event.

SATURDAY, AUGUST 18, 2018

1 – 5 p.m. Central (local) time; 2 – 6 p.m. Eastern time
Sites in Long Beach and Michigan City

Sponsored by Indiana Modern, an affinity group of Indiana Landmarks.

Please note: The Lake Michigan Mod Tour is for Indiana Landmarks members only.Not a member? Join or renew at indianalandmarks.org/membership.

Lake Michigan Mod offers you the opportunity to tour modern landmarks in Long Beach and Michigan City on August 18, 2018. The tour, which is open only to members of Indiana Modern and Indiana Landmarks, begins 1 p.m. Central Time (2 p.m. Eastern Time), at the 1937 Coolspring School near Michigan City, designed by architect John Lloyd Wright. Son of the legendary Frank Lloyd Wright, John was a distinguished architect in his own right—and the inventor of Lincoln Logs—who lived in nearby Long Beach for more than 20 years.

Next you’ll visit the 1931 Long Beach Town Hall, also designed by John Lloyd Wright. Once threatened with demolition and on our 10 Most Endangered Landmarks list, the International-style Town Hall instead was enlarged with an architecturally compatible addition. Stay tuned because we hope to add a private home in Long Beach, perhaps another Wright design.

From 3-5 p.m. Central Time (4-6 p.m. Eastern Time), you can tour and enjoy refreshments at the Frost House in Michigan City as the guest of owners Bob Coscarelli and Karen Valentine. The couple bought the Mondrian-like house from descendants of Dr. Robert and Amelia Frost who built the house in 1964. Famed furniture designer Paul McCobb assisted manufacturer Alside Homes with the interior design elements. Coscarelli and Valentine’s purchase included most of the original Knoll furnishings. The house was featured in Dwell, WELT and Indianapolis Monthly magazines following the couple’s restoration. They’ll lead tours followed by cocktails around the newly installed pool.
