Leading architecture firm sees growth with prominent local design studio
Indianapolis, IN – David Rausch Studio, central Indiana’s distinguished boutique architecture and design team, has announced it will be joining Luminaut, a vibrant architecture and design firm — nationally recognized for their expertise in hospitality, senior living, and Greek housing — with offices in Cincinnati and Indianapolis. This brings together two creative forces with a shared vision to create spaces that illuminate and inspire.
“This is an inspiring new chapter for myself and my team,” said David Rausch, “to join Luminaut at this time of growth will bolster our abilities to serve our clients and foster professional development for our team. With the resources now available to us, we’re poised to cultivate new connections and enhance our services in existing and long-standing relationships.”
“Part of our commitment to excellence for our clients is fostering the growth of our staff. Our recent acquisition of David Rausch Studio allows us to expand our Indianapolis office with their extensive experience in hospitality and civic environments,” said Matt Erdman, Luminaut CEO. “We’re excited to bring on board this talented group of highly knowledgeable architects and designers.”
Luminaut, based in Cincinnati, has seen sustained growth since the 2021 acquisition of Rowland Design, launching the firm’s Indianapolis presence. In the past 18 months, they have increased their technical staff by 40% and added leadership firm-wide, which has allowed them to identify and target new markets, implement new technologies, and streamline operations.
With the incorporation of David Rausch Studio in their Indianapolis office, Luminaut is positioned to expand its services, take on larger scale projects, and better serve clients with a broad network of industry experts and specialists.
Luminaut is a place where talent is nurtured and ideas are born, where spaces are transformed to illuminate and inspire. A culture built for collaboration and celebration—to generate good energy and great work.
