This one is an absolute favorite of mine. The Clark E. Mallery Residence or “the yawning house.” Built by Indianapolis residential architect, Louis H. Gibson in 1889. This is another rare and unusual example of Shingle Style in Indiana. Gibson included an image of this house in his book "Beautiful Houses” in 1895 with no floor plan or location (image 2). It wasn’t until working with Peat's images that I could identify the location of this house in the Historic Herron-Morton District in Indianapolis. Sadly, this one was demolished not long after Peat took this image (c.1962) for a parking lot for the business behind it, but the floor plans do exist if someone wants to recreate this stunner! (image 3). It should also be mentioned that staring at this house too long will remind you of the Luck Dragon from the NeverEnding Story if you were into that sort of thing. #indianalandmarks#historicpreservation#oldhouselove#historichouse#houseportrait#herronmortonplace#oldhouse#historicarchitecture#archi_ologie#shinglestyle#indianapolis#LouisHGibson#neatpeat
The last image I posted inspired this short Holiday/Christmas video clip of a client's home decorated for Christmas. Sally helped our client create a warm cozy traditional design and decor throughout the newly constructed shingle style home. More images of the home can be found via the link in our Profile.

Brooklyn: I’ve always been crazy about the Shingle Style, so it’s no surprise this is one of my favorites in Clinton Hill. I think it’s because it’s our unique American Home. Shingles are expressive; with every curve, cross gable, bay window, partially wrapped porch, it’s like they’re telling you exactly what lies on the inside. They’re like jazz in wood and glass, and four dimensions.
We are working on some shingle pattern detailing for our Weston project. This is a dormer at Naumkeag out in the Berkshires. Designed by Stanford White. We visited a few years ago. I remember thinking the exterior of the house was far more interesting than the interior.
