Atomic Crash Party Comes to Fruition

Get your swanky duds on.

First Atomic Crash Party crashes Jami’s pad. Jami restored this mid century modern gem beautifully. Starting with vigorous persecution of vinyl siding, culminating with the adornment of period furnishings and impeccable style.

This restoration benefited from original architect residing next-door. Occasionally, advice and encouragement were offered direct from the source.

Architect in question is a personal favorite in Indianapolis’ Mid Century Modern scene, Mr. J. Parke Randall. Parke designed 13 homes in and around Indy from 1950 – 1975. He’s still rocking a passion for design and is digging the resurgence in appreciation for modern residential architecture.

Here’s the clincher. Wait for it. Parke Randall will be crossing the street and joining us for the first ever Atomic Crash Party. He tells a fascinating story recounting a conversation he had with Charles Eames about building steel framed homes. A must hear.
