Mt. Vernon grad wins $1,000 competition

INDIANAPOLIS — Greenfield native Emery Hunt was recently announced as a winner of the IN_FILL Design Competition 2017, a contest to explore affordable, well-designed and contextual contemporary single-family homes on infill lots across Indiana’s walk-able core communities, according to a press release.

Infill development is the process of designing residential buildings on vacant lots in an urban landscape, according to Infill Indiana’s website.

Hunt won the Indianapolis portion of the competition; there were winners in the Evansville, Anderson and overall grand prize categories as well. Hunt is a graduate of Mt. Vernon High School and earned his master’s of architecture from Ball State University in 2015. He is employed by CSO Architects of Indianapolis.

Jurors said Hunt’s design was chosen as the winner for its affordability and its enhancement of the surrounding neighborhood aesthetic at 1950 Cornell Avenue, according to a press release.
