    • ONE 10 STUDIO Architects 2012 AIA INDIANA DISTINGUISHED FIRM AWARD SUBMISSIONA small firm transforming Indianapolis by re-urbanizingneighborhoods, enhancing architecture, and inspiringthrough thoughtful design.
    • “SUCCESSFUL ARCHITECTURE SHOULD TELL A GREATSTORY.” THIS IS THE FOUNDATION OF ONE 10 STUDIO... AND THIS IS OUR STORY. ONE 10 STUDIO is a small firm making a big dif- ference. Through thoughtful design, we have created our own “East-Side Story” to re-urban- ize an Indianapolis community and raise design awareness. We are a focused team fueled by the passions of our staff, clients, and neighbors, committed to the architectural profession and communities in which we live and work.AIA INDIANA | 2012 DISTINGUISHED FIRM AWARD | SUBMISSION | ONE 10 STUDIO ARCHITECTS PAGE 2
    • 01. Re - UrbanizingNEIGHBORHOODS ONE 10 STUDIO resides within one of Indianapolis’ oldest east side communities, Irvington. Irvington is known for its rich architectural history and vibrant community spirit. Jeff Echols, a ONE 10 STUDIO team member, is even a resident here. ONE 10 STUDIO has “lived” there since our inception and has significantly contributed to Indianapolis’ eastside growth and success. Through our work, new housing de- velopments are available, a neighborhood grocery, local brewery, social service agencies, a community center, and our newest design project, a medical facility. The walk- ability of the area is improving, new residents are moving to the area, and eastside Indianapolis is becoming more attractive and a destination, once again. ONE 10 STUDIO activates projects that build a whole com- munity one project at a time in a determined effort to re-urbanize neighborhoods. We are so committed to the idea of whole community development that on most local projects, we contribute a portion of our fee as a testament to our commitment to the community as a neighbor and partner. We also drive future developments through our involve- ment with the Irvington Development Organization. We are engaged through chairing the Irvington Green Initia- tive and hosting a monthly GREEN Hour where residents learn about sustainable practices for their residences and businesses. Of course, we also sponsor some great local civic activities like the Art with a Heart programs, the an- nual Halloween house decorating contest, and most re- cently, the Woody Guthrie, seven day music festival. ONE 10 STUDIO is personally committed to elevating the level of design in Indianapolis while creating a better com- munity. We strive for each project that we take on to make a difference in the lives of our clients and community.AIA INDIANA | 2012 DISTINGUISHED FIRM AWARD | SUBMISSION | ONE 10 STUDIO ARCHITECTS PAGE 3
    • When children arrive, they are recovering from the effects of abuse, neglect, and/or abandonment. Through design, this building has increased the ability to treat children in a modern, therapeutic, and safe environment. It has been called by many a “game changer” for social service facilities in Indianapolis. From the building’s placement to the materials chosen, this facility provides security without the institutional feel. It truly makes a difference in each child’s life as their temporary “home away from home”. 2011 American Institute of Architects Indiana Honor Award 2011 Keep Indianapolis Beautiful Monumental Affair Architeture Honor Award 01.1 | Lutheran Child & Family Services Indianapolis, IndianaAIA INDIANA | 2012 DISTINGUISHED FIRM AWARD | SUBMISSION | ONE 10 STUDIO ARCHITECTS PAGE 4

    • “A very clear plan and site strategy were employed to create a facility for troubled children and teens. The interior spaces were child-friendly without being pandering.The exterior court was a clearly defined ‘yard’ which organized the plan and served asa natural orientation device. A small set of simple materials were beautifully detailed and clearly expressed.”-PAUL MANKINS FAIA, SUBSTANCE ARCHITECTURE, 2011 AIA INDIANA DESIGN AWARDS JURY CHAIR “Architecture is inventive in composition, materiality and detail—inside and out. Theplan organization and clarity is superbly executed. The site plan appears too big until the photos reveal a space that feels just right. Having worked on similar buildings Ireally appreciate the designers restraint in letting organization, light, space, material, detail and color create a much needed welcoming presence.” -STEVE MCDOWELL FAIA, DIRECTOR OF DESIGN, BNIM ARCHITECTURE, 2011 AIA INDIANA DESIGN AWARDS JURYAIA INDIANA | 2012 DISTINGUISHED FIRM AWARD | SUBMISSION | ONE 10 STUDIO ARCHITECTS PAGE 6
    • 01.2 | Pogue’s Run Grocer Indianapolis, Indiana 2012 Mayor’s Sustainability Award, City of Indianapolis Eating healthy and buying local produce sustains a growing com- munity. Because of design projects like Pogue’s Run Grocer, resi- dents now walk within their neighborhoods to purchase locally grown produce that is fresh and healthy. Through architecture, the east side of Indianapolis is growing businesses, residents, and most importantly, communities.AIA INDIANA | 2012 DISTINGUISHED FIRM AWARD | SUBMISSION | ONE 10 STUDIO ARCHITECTS PAGE 7
    • This was more than a design project; it was a community effort where a core group of residents, concerned about the health and welfare of the community, joined to create a viable, afford- able, retail outlet for local food in the city of Indianapolis. To further enhance the greater community’s involvement, the design incorporated equipment and materials for merchandis- ing, refrigeration and food preparation provided and reclaimed locally from donors and other retailers. To strengthen ties with their neighbors, the construction effort utilized many local workers, both skilled and unskilled. Some of which have transitioned to permanent positions at the store. Pogue’s Run Grocer has become a catalyst for feeding the com- munity on several levels.AIA INDIANA | 2012 DISTINGUISHED FIRM AWARD | SUBMISSION | ONE 10 STUDIO ARCHITECTS PAGE 8

In addition to the housing and within the same complex, multi-purpose community space will be created, including event space, community center, and IDO office. All will benefit, including the environment. The green roof will reduce greenhouse gases, and a rain collection cistern will support the community garden within the urban courtyard that is open to all.AIA INDIANA | 2012 DISTINGUISHED FIRM AWARD | SUBMISSION | ONE 10 STUDIO ARCHITECTS PAGE 10
    • 01.4 | Black Acre Brewing Co. Indianapolis, Indiana When five young lawyers decided to take their small brewing business public, they turned to ONE 10 STUDIO to create a Starbucks-like space for craft breweries. The challenge: Start-up money was tight, and they wanted to perform most of the work themselves.AIA INDIANA | 2012 DISTINGUISHED FIRM AWARD | SUBMISSION | ONE 10 STUDIO ARCHITECTS PAGE 11
    • ONE 10 STUDIO helped Black Acre Brewery literally “build” their dreams. We designed the space and managed the construction, including the workforce of the five business partners. Inspired by the art and craft that goes into brewing Black Acre’s beer, ONE 10 STUDIO engaged local artisans, utilized earthy, reclaimed materials and even drafted friends and family into the design and construction of the unique ‘modern pub turned coffee house’ that the Founders desired. Palette wood, beer bottles, barn beams and plumbing piping were just some of the repur- posed materials which saved money and demonstrated the team’s commitment to sustainability. The traditional bar and standing bar nestled between palette- wood-wrapped fermentation and cold rooms give patrons a cozy retreat from the busy street outside. The ever popular brew ket- tles are on display in the large brew house window and the pub- lic space is grounded and visually connected by a hand troweled application of color infused concrete flooring. With a desire to see this small business succeed, we agreed to receive a portion of our payment in beer (a true bartering situa- tion) as we knew cash was tight. It was a win-win situation. This new brewery now is ONE 10’s home brew pub, and all are invited to join our studio team, clients, consultants and neighbors each Friday night for our weekly ONE 10 “social session”.AIA INDIANA | 2012 DISTINGUISHED FIRM AWARD | SUBMISSION | ONE 10 STUDIO ARCHITECTS PAGE 12
    • Clete Kunce, AIA, President of ONE 10 STUDIO has been leading facility development for the Central Indiana Community Foun- dation since 2000. It started with a master plan of the English Foundation building, a 93,000 square foot office building built in 1953 thanks to the generosity of Capt. William E. English to specifically house non-profit organizations. Throughout this de- cade long renovation, the Foundation has upgraded leased of- fice space to charitable organizations for below-market rates. 01.5 | Central Indiana Community Foundation Indianapolis, IndianaAIA INDIANA | 2012 DISTINGUISHED FIRM AWARD | SUBMISSION | ONE 10 STUDIO ARCHITECTS PAGE 13
    • When CICF moved to Hamilton County, ONE 10 STUDIO trans- formed the former Carmel Public Library into an office location for CICF Legacy Fund of Hamilton County. The remainder of the former Library was converted into Classroom space for Ivy Tech Community College, and IUPUI. This re-purposed building is now a hub of non-profit and educational services capturing the spirit of “growing and giving back”. To maximize leasable space in the English Foundation Building, while accommodating its own staff growth, the CICF leadership decided an office location between downtown Indianapolis and Carmel was needed. This one-of-a-kind project utilizes simple NORTH ELEVATION materials in creative ways and once completed, was the envy of all CICF staff. Most recently, ONE 10 STUDIO expanded the base- ment of this building into a light-filled garden conference center to match the energetic and inspirational vibe created through- out the entire building.

    • Former Indianapolis Public School #37 will become an eastside community center better known as “37 Place”, and the neigh- borhood has already deemed it the “Heartbeat of Martindale- Brightwood.” 01.6 | 37 Place Community Center Indianapolis, IndianaAIA INDIANA | 2012 DISTINGUISHED FIRM AWARD | SUBMISSION | ONE 10 STUDIO ARCHITECTS PAGE 15
    • This re-invented school turned community center will open its doors in October of 2012 with four agencies providing services to over 200 children, seniors, and neighbors every day. Taking on the role of true “Citizen-Architect”, ONE 10 STUDIO helped or- ganize two volunteer days to engage the community stake-hold- ers and residents.

ONE 10 STUDIO is proud to be involved as design and construc- tion leaders but felt it important to give more than just our talent to this community effort. We donated 6% of our construction management fee as an in-kind donation to help ensure the proj- ect’s success. This is a large commitment for a small three- person firm, but again our team is truly invested and committed to this community and their strong emotional connection to this old building.

    • 02. EnhancingResidential Architecture Many homes are designed and constructed without an ar- chitect. ONE 10 STUDIO is changing that….one home at a time. ONE 10 STUDIO combines function and aesthetics into a design everyone can feel good about. We are raising the awareness of suburban and urban residential design, exceeding client expectations, and achieving design so- lutions that make homes more efficient, functional, and beautiful; solutions that maximize a homeowners’ invest- ment. ONE 10 STUDIO also transforms clients from complacent supporters to ardent advocates of design. Our clients real- ize that whether they are remodeling, adding on, or build- ing from scratch, we guide the way. Through our engaging process, they are increasing their knowledge about de- sign, and clients who know more about design are better positioned to appreciate its value – HOW GOOD DESIGN TRANSFORMS THEIR EVERYDAY LIVES – their homes, businesses, places of worship, and all aspects of their lives.AIA INDIANA | 2012 DISTINGUISHED FIRM AWARD | SUBMISSION | ONE 10 STUDIO ARCHITECTS PAGE 20
    • Transformation: The act of a marked change, as in appearance or character, usually for better. Living on a lake can be soothing, inspiring, and fun! However, when our commercial real estate developer client purchased a 1980’s house on the lake, he wasn’t able to say any of those things about his house…other than…“it had potential”. 02.1 | Geist Residence Fishers, IndianaAIA INDIANA | 2012 DISTINGUISHED FIRM AWARD | SUBMISSION | ONE 10 STUDIO ARCHITECTS PAGE 21
    • This transformed house now truly engages the site, the lake and all they have to offer. The experience of this new modern home whether inside or outside is the ideal place to enjoy the sunrise, the breezes, the sounds of the lake and the stars at night. The beautiful house is planned around a central organizing cir- culation spine that begins on the exterior approach and termi- nates on the exterior deck, extending beyond by offering spec- tacular lake views. This design element is reminiscent of the boat docks on the lake.AIA INDIANA | 2012 DISTINGUISHED FIRM AWARD | SUBMISSION | ONE 10 STUDIO ARCHITECTS PAGE 22

    • A college house converted to an “American Dream House”. After her daughters completed Indiana University, our client de- molished the existing home to build a new “urban-infill” on this small city lot. She wanted this home to be different from her other homes in Colombia, London, and New York, and engaged our firm to create her “American Dream Home”. 02.2 | Urban Farmhouse Bloomington, IndianaAIA INDIANA | 2012 DISTINGUISHED FIRM AWARD | SUBMISSION | ONE 10 STUDIO ARCHITECTS PAGE 24

    • A desire to house their family in a more secluded and serene en- vironment led our clients to purchase a picturesque rolling site in a northern suburb of Indianapolis. The owners approached us with a romantic notion of a simpler life in a beautiful French country home. 02.3 | French Country Estate Carmel, IndianaAIA INDIANA | 2012 DISTINGUISHED FIRM AWARD | SUBMISSION | ONE 10 STUDIO ARCHITECTS PAGE 27
    • They originally envisioned their home at top of the hill and yet when they engaged ONE 10 STUDIO, a new vision emerged. ONE 10 STUDIO challenged the initial premise and nestled the home into the hill which allowed the creation of a walk-out lower level at the exterior swimming pool and entertainment area. It also al- lows for a covered exterior room at the top of the hill maximizing views and breezes. The thoughtful design creates an intimate entry courtyard which also allows southern sun throughout the day through French doors and offers uninterrupted views to the north and south from the main living spaces. This home is constantly engaged with the entire site and is in harmony with each unique aspect of the peaceful setting. Through the architects interpretation of French rural architec- ture, this stunning home provides a simple and elegant compli- ment to this most beautiful setting.AIA INDIANA | 2012 DISTINGUISHED FIRM AWARD | SUBMISSION | ONE 10 STUDIO ARCHITECTS PAGE 28
    • The challenge was downsizing while still having enough space to entertain. The Ireland condo design incorporated a combina- tion of small yet efficient spaces that together met the needs of this client. They were also inspired by the Jack Nicholson movie, Something’s Gotta Give, and hoped to achieve a look similar to the house in this movie.

    • 03. InspiringThrough DesignDesign has become a buzz word in today’s world. Target,Apple, and HGTV have made design “the cool thing tohave”. Of course, architects have known this secret for along time. As cool as design can be, it’s easy to get caughtin the day to day hassles of running a business.....espe-cially a small business.Henry Ford said, “Coming together is a beginning. Keep-ing together is progress. Working together is success.”ONE 10 STUDIO is a three year old, three person archi-tectural firm. Like most small businesses, we don’t havea bookkeeper or a facilities person. We all pitch in andall are committed to take care of the day to day details inorder to serve the greater good through design.ENSURING AN OPEN AND ENGAGING DESIGN STUDIOCuriosity is king, ideas flow freely, and design solutionsgerminate from high energy design charettes with ourdesigners and owners sitting side by side collaboratingon solutions. Through our process, we demonstrate gooddesign to our clients rather than expecting them to justunderstand it. Design is an exploratory process and thejourney is worth it, but it’s the result we’re after....the dif-ference we’ll make in their lives.AIA INDIANA | 2012 DISTINGUISHED FIRM AWARD | SUBMISSION | ONE 10 STUDIO ARCHITECTS PAGE 31
    • Our open studio provides a collegial environment enhanc- ing communication where the sum of the efforts far ex- ceeds any one individual accomplishment. We leverage the energy of the group, the great ideas of each, and find solutions that will make a difference. Our motto through- out our studio culture is “the best idea wins” and client engagement is crucial to our process. We invite our clients to be a part of the process, which in turn creates lasting friendships. We believe in an open office environment and problem solving has increased with our centralized “stand up meeting table”. Our open environment has resulted in a social, spontaneous, and productive office.AIA INDIANA | 2012 DISTINGUISHED FIRM AWARD | SUBMISSION | ONE 10 STUDIO ARCHITECTS PAGE 32
    • We’ve also travelled to Chicago, Columbus and South Car- olina and have hosted top designers like Marlon Black- well, an AIA national design award winner, in our office. As a result, we’ve also become an award winning firm and were thrilled when our small firm’s project was named the 2011 Monumental Affair top Architecture award winner, beating out the JW Mariott and the new Indianapolis con- vention center. ONE 10 STUDIO also contributes to our professional or- ganization, the American Institute of Architects (AIA), at both the firm and individual level. The AIA enables and activates a community of peers and network of indispens- able resources and ONE 10 STUDIO gives back to the pro- fession through service in design juries and look forward to chairing the AIA Regional Convention including Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana in 2013.AIA INDIANA | 2012 DISTINGUISHED FIRM AWARD | SUBMISSION | ONE 10 STUDIO ARCHITECTS PAGE 33
    • SEEKING SUSTAINABILITY THROUGH ACTIONSArchitects lead a design process that results in more en-ergy efficient buildings and advise their clients on all mat-ters related to sustainability, including materials selectionand the application of appropriate, cost-effective ratingsystems.In addition to leading these sustainability design practic-es into each project, ONE 10 STUDIO actively engages ourcommunity through grassroots programming. When ONE10 STUDIO Associate Jeff Echols became the Chairman ofthe Irvington Green Initiative he knew that his number onegoal would have to be engaging the community.He took the idea of building relationships to a radical levelby partnering with over 40 groups, organizations and busi-nesses to accomplish 3 major goals:• Develop a Teaching Rain Garden• Produce a Spirit and Place Festival event• Launch the monthly ‘Green Hour’ grass roots engagement and networking seriesAs a result, the Irvington Green Initiative made the leapfrom a 2-year-old, once-in-a-while gathering of a few neigh-bors into an award-winning organization that successfullyapplied for grant funding; partnered with City agenciesand local schools and businesses; and leveraged publicand private money into the development of 1,500 squarefoot educational rain garden project, the largest Spirit andPlace Festival event in 2010 and a monthly event thateclipses the success of similar events organized by an in-ternational organization.The Irvington Green Initiative’s Green Hour is a monthlygrassroots gathering designed to promote sustainabilityin homes, businesses and congregations throughout In-dianapolis. As the organizer and host of the Green Hour,ONE 10 STUDIO’s Jeff Echols provides a forum for allthings ‘Green’ by introducing a diverse list of guest speak-ers ranging from scientists to politicians to entrepreneursto policy makers to directors of environmental organiza-tions.AIA INDIANA | 2012 DISTINGUISHED FIRM AWARD | SUBMISSION | ONE 10 STUDIO ARCHITECTS PAGE 34

    • CONNECTING WITH YOUNG PEOPLE We annually host local high school students, inspiring them to enter the design and construction profession. These students sacrifice their spring break to learn about design and construction and investigate whether it is the career choice for them. Clete has been an adjunct profes- sor at the Ball State University College of Architecture and Planning, teaching design studio and the entire firm has traveled to Muncie to act as guest jurors in design studios. During this past summer, we exceeded our own expecta- tions and hired 4 architectural interns, and it was energiz- ing. Young people are eager to engage in projects that positively impact our community, and they bring great ideas and learn along the way. Our emerging architecture professionals increasingly view sustainability not as a spe- cialty but as an integral part of everyday practice, pushing the standard for innovation and performance ever higher. Working together, we made each project better.AIA INDIANA | 2012 DISTINGUISHED FIRM AWARD | SUBMISSION | ONE 10 STUDIO ARCHITECTS PAGE 36
    • Yes…we work hard…which allows us to enjoy our time with each other, our Clients and our friends. ONE 10 STUDIO has cultivated a culture that is more than simply a place of employment. Our firm has a very horizontal hierarchy; everyone is encouraged to participate in all activities of the firm and push it forward. There may be spur-of-the moment design charrettes, or staff stories that turn into an event, such as bowling, Miniature golf or Tuesday cake day! These are celebrations to reward excellent effort and hard work. Our standing weekly “Friday at 4” social gatherings at our neighboring brew pub are times to enjoy with staff, and open to all of our friends and neighbors. These are simple things that create our culture of friendship and a spirit of camaraderie that permeates our STUDIO environ- ment. What does this mean? We have fun; because we love what we do…it’s really that simple…we love what we do!AIA INDIANA | 2012 DISTINGUISHED FIRM AWARD | SUBMISSION | ONE 10 STUDIO ARCHITECTS PAGE 37
    • We thought you might enjoy hearing from our summer in- terns. In their own words, they’ve provided their thoughts on the difference that ONE 10 STUDIO has had on their own lives. We’ve worked hard, played hard, and mentored them as professionals and peers.“A cohesive studio environment at One 10 provided me with multiple opportunities toexpand my knowledge of design charettes, construction management practices, coderegulations, site visits, computer software and a myriad of other skills that I will apply to my future course work and professional projects.” -ANDREW FRIES, 2012 INTERN “Keeping a friendly and inviting atmosphere within the studio space promoted afriendly and progressive design environment. I could not have made such a vast anddramatic improvement in my architectural repertoire without Clete, Patrick and Jeff at ONE 10 STUDIO.” -MARLEE BRABIN, 2012 INTERNAIA INDIANA | 2012 DISTINGUISHED FIRM AWARD | SUBMISSION | ONE 10 STUDIO ARCHITECTS PAGE 38
    • ONE 10 STUDIO celebrated its 2 1/2 year anniversary at Black Acre Brewing Co. We hosted a party at our “home brew pub” and introduced 100 new patrons to this new local business. We continue to give back, helping clients grow their businesses too!AIA INDIANA | 2012 DISTINGUISHED FIRM AWARD | SUBMISSION | ONE 10 STUDIO ARCHITECTS PAGE 39
    • “Successful Architecture should tell a great story”. This is not the end of this ONE 10 STUDIO story…but merely the beginning. ONE 10 STUDIO is a small firm making a big difference.

    • 07 September 2012Re: Letter of Support for One 10 Studio for the AIA Indiana Distinguished Firm AwardDear AIA Indiana Award Committee,I am pleased to offer my support for One 10 Studio as the 2012 AIA Indiana Distinguished Firm. In justover three years this young firm has exhibited a commitment to ‘building well’ in their place. This is afirm of talented individuals who understand the importance of putting purpose before profit in theprocess and product of their work.Their principled approach to design argues for architecture that can happen anywhere and at anyscale. This has been evidenced by several of their designs receiving AIA awards. What I am equallyimpressed by is One 10 Studio’s commitment to being civic leaders in Indianapolis and their ownneighborhood of Irvington…they are true ‘locavores’. By using their talents to advocate for thebroader purposes of architecture through civic activism they are contributing to the improvement oftheir community and the human condition. In effect they are being Citizen Architects and are settingthe gold standard for what an architecture firm can be in the state of Indiana; firms both large andsmall.I hope these comments have been helpful. One 10 Studio has earned my respect and is deserving ofyour distinguished firm award. I offer my highest recommendation of One 10 Studio.Sincerely,Marlon Blackwell, FAIA
    • August 16, 2012To Whom It May Concern:ONE10STUDIO is a great community partner, especially in its support of the local Irvingtoncommunity through the Irvington Development Organization (IDO) and the Irvington GreenInitiative (IGI). Director of Construction Management Jeff Echols is an IDO Board Member andChairman of the IGI, where he hosts the Green Hour effort – of which I have personally been aguest speaker and witnessed firsthand this initiative to inspire, inform, and provide an openforum for discussion on how to be a more sustainable City. ONE10STUDIO also devotes a largeportion of its time and efforts working with local not-for-profits like Indy Food Co-op, CentralIndiana Community Foundation, Lutheran Child and Family Services, and The Hope Source,Inc. The City of Indianapolis and its citizens appreciate ONE10STUDIO’s commitment todesign and construction as well as community involvement. Best regards, Gregory A.
