Detroit Foundation Hotel in Michigan by McIntosh Poris Associates

Wednesday, March 21st, 2018

Article source: McIntosh Poris Associates

McIntosh Poris Associates worked with Aparium Hotel Group to repurpose the former Detroit Fire Department Headquarters and adjacent building, previously known as the Pontchartrain Wine Cellars, into the Detroit Foundation Hotel. Together, the two historically registered buildings will accommodate 100 hotel rooms, office/conference spaces, Detroit-focused retail, and a fitness center. The boutique hotel features a ground-level restaurant/lounge and a roof-top banquet space housed in a new addition. The $28-million project embraces a “Detroit State of Mind” to welcome both visitors and locals with an authentic sense of place.

As part of his encyclopedic collection of American industry and ingenuity, Henry Ford transported this machine shop from New England to this site within the Liberty Craftworks at Greenfield Village, where it houses the museum’s glass gallery. JCDA’s renewal of the building articulates the site, connecting the gallery entrance to the hot shop by rotating the vestibule to face it.

Arcus Center For Social Justice Leadership at Kalamazoo College in Michigan by Studio Gang Architects

Friday, April 14th, 2017

Historically, convening for social justice has taken place in informal settings—a church basement, a living room, or even around a kitchen table.

The Arcus Center for Social Justice Leadership brings these discussions up from the basement and squarely into public consciousness.

801 West Lafayette Blvd. Parking Garage in Detroit, Michigan by Albert Kahn and Associates

Saturday, July 30th, 2016

Article source: LarsonO’Brien

Banker Wire recently collaborated with architects in Detroit to deliver a custom metal mesh solution for the renovation and historical preservation of a more than 90-year-old parking garage in the heart of the city.

Originally built in 1924, the parking garage at 801 West Lafayette Blvd. was one of two buildings on the Detroit News complex – the other being the home of the namesake newspaper. The garage was constructed for Detroit News employees and delivery vehicles. In 2014, Bedrock Management bought both buildings to serve Bedrock employees and other corporate tenants. Renovations began immediately with the preservation of their historic design elements top-of-mind.

G.G. Brown Building Addition – University of Michigan in Ann Arbor by Banker Wire

Saturday, July 16th, 2016

Article source: Banker Wire

The design architect of a new building addition and renovation project at the University of Michigan says the firm “pushed the envelope” with the help of Banker Wire.

Banker Wire metal mesh was specified for the railing infill of a new pedestrian bridge, which provides access to the new Center of Excellence in Nano Mechanical Science and Engineering building – an addition to the George Granger Brown (G.G. Brown) Memorial Laboratories building on North Campus in Ann Arbor.

Spanning more than 50 feet, the bridge had a significant impact on the overall design, and as a result needed to mimic the new building’s predominant design feature – a giant LED wall showing abstract samples of active lab work.

A consistent palette of materials includes solid-wood floors, crisp white walls, original molding refinished in black, and neutral-toned furniture.

Article source: C Concept Design

The new Kruizenga Art Museum (KAM) at Hope College in Holland, Michigan, has been described as a “breath of fresh air”. The uniqueness of the 15,000 gsf Museum building is largely due to its unorthodox, saw-toothed granite exterior.
