ecoREHAB of Muncie; Gharkey Street House, Spring 2011
Involvement: Design-build Studio (402) led by Jonathan Spodek, focused on major demolition and re-framing of existing abandoned house.
– Within the studio, we were then given the opportunity to focus on a rebuilding portion of the project as small teams (front or back porches). My involvement as part of the Front Porch Team developed a solution reflecting the historical character of the house while utilizing reclaimed material throughout. All specific design solutions and building centered around materials that could be found at “Solid State” Muncie’s local reclaimed material depot from the areas dilapidated and demolished homes.
