Project: Ligonier Public Library

Kelty Tappy Design, Inc. was commissioned in late 2011 to conduct a feasibility study for the purpose of determining the need for expanding and/or renovating the existing library facility. Several public design charrettes were conducted in January 2012, covering a wide range of issues including urban design, the architecture of the original Carnegie facility and subsequent addition, and consideration of technology infrastructure, interior finishes, and mechanical systems. These conversations, along with information gathered from a variety of local leaders, led to a draft study document delivered to the board in March 2012 for public review and comment. In June 2012, Kelty Tappy Design, Inc. presented the final copy of the Feasibility Study document to the library board along with several illustrated options on possible addition/renovation schemes. Additional updates will be posted as they occur.

McCulloch-Weatherhogg Double House Finished

The McCulloch-Weatherhogg House, home of United Way of Allen County, was built in 1883 for banker Charles McCulloch, son of Hugh McCulloch, secretary of the treasury under Presidents Abraham Lincoln, Andrew Johnson and Chester A. Arthur.  Charles' sons, John Ross McCulloch and Frederick McCulloch, eventually lived on either side of the double house. Later, the Victorian Gothic Revival was the residence of John Ross McCulloch and prominent local architect Charles Weatherhogg. At one time, the building was in such disrepair from fire, water and neglect that it was placed on the Historic Landmarks Foundation of Indiana's 10 Most Endangered Buildings List. It is now on the National Register of Historic Places.  The Historic Landmarks Foundation began restoration of the building and adjacent carriage house in approximately 2003.  After purchasing the building from Historic Landmarks Foundation in late 2005, Fort Wayne businessman Jerry Henry began a comprehensive rehabilitation of the structure for the United Way.  The architect-of-record, Kelty Tappy Design, Inc., designed and supervised the rehabilitation and also developed and filed the paperwork for historic certification with the National Park Service.

The Birthplace at St. Joseph Hospital Renovation Finished

The renovation of the Birthplace at St. Joseph Hospital progressed through a nine-month “gestation” and emerged with a fresh take on life…on new life, that is.  The 13,500 square foot, $1.8 million project successfully implemented numerous operational goals, including an entirely new neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), a new nursery, an expanded patient education facility, a whirlpool for pain management, strategically-located nursing stations, and updated patient rooms complete with today’s conveniences.  This major renovation was accomplished while maintaining full operational capabilities by the teamwork exhibited between the design-build team and the project representatives and nursing staff of St. Joseph Hospital.
