Emelie Building
Indianapolis, Indiana

Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, the Emelie Building was saved from demolition and restored by Browning Day Mullins Dierdorf Architects to serve as the company's corporate headquarters from 1987 to 2003. This three-story, red brick and gray limestone building is located in downtown Indianapolis. Built in 1902 as an apartment/flat building with street-level commercial space, the German Renaissance Revival structure has fine decorative detailing including swags, roundels, floral cartouches, strip pilasters and other classical revival motifs, which were restored. The interior areas were completely renovated to complement the historic architectural character. A 16,000-square-foot addition brought the total building to 35,000 square feet. This adaptive reuse was designed according to the Department of Interior - National Park Service's Guidelines for Historic Preservation.
