Midland is a charming suburban community comprising single-family detached homes in Midland, Ind. This well-thought-out plan offers a comfortable and versatile living space bathed in natural light to live larger than the square footage suggests.

The client sought fresh, innovative designs for this new collection of homes, emphasizing open floor layouts, seamless indoor-outdoor living, and vibrant front yard spaces. Given that the homes in Midland are alley-loaded, it was crucial to ensure that the designs encouraged active front living and provided ample outdoor areas. This was achieved by incorporating sizable front porches and convenient side lanai spaces, effectively maximizing the homes’ potential within their compact footprints.

The community of Midland boasts a host of amenities within a short distance, including a spacious grand lawn, scenic walking trails, and a prominent amenity structure designed for concerts, farmers markets, and various outdoor events. Additionally, select homes offer picturesque views of a neighborhood water feature. Midland’s prime location places it near the vibrant Maret District, the scenic Monon Loop Trail, the Grand Park Sports Complex, and the bustling Grand Junction Plaza—highlights of living in Midland, Ind.

From the Judges
The single use of material on the exterior creates a simple elevation, with an unexpected twist in the Juliet balcony on the bedroom. The outdoor space is very unified and lives well.
