Meet Ross Chapin, Inglenook of Carmel's Architect

Meet Ross, Inglenook’s Architect

We recently had the pleasure of a visit from Inglenook’s renowned architect, Ross Chapin, from Ross Chapin Architects. Throughout the building process, Ross works hand-in-hand with Casey, our builder, to design Inglenook’s custom homes to fit the exact needs of our homeowners. Whether it’s adding custom built-ins for a mud room, installing French doors to the side patio, or simply finishing a basement to create more living space, Ross and Casey tackle projects big and small to tailor Inglenook houses into homes.

If we were to describe Ross in one word it would be thoughtful. Those of you who met him at one of Inglenook’s porch parties would likely agree. While “thoughtful” might not be the first word that comes to mind when looking for your future architect, maybe it should be. We see Ross’s thoughtful nature in his active listening and gentle demeanor. His thoughtfulness is further displayed in the homes he designs. Inglenook’s homes are designed so that active spaces (i.e., living, dining, kitchen) are located in the front of the home overlooking the community greens. The passive spaces (the bedrooms, offices, and bathrooms) are given more appropriate, private locations in the rear of the home and on the second floor. This strategic location of rooms also plays into the ease of living. Ross has thoughtfully placed every room—even down to the best place to put the laundry room—to ensure that daily tasks are made that much easier.

His design is more than a signature; it’s a way of living.
