Detroit Architecture

How I spent my summer

By | Detroit Architecture, Projects, Studio Happenings | No Comments

After leaving the Detroit area for school, it feels great to be back Downtown and getting to design and build where all the rebuilding and revitalizing is happening. It is a very exciting city to work in as the reputation changes and the city develops.

As a perfect example, I spent the past couple weeks building a model out of basswood and foam core of an old hardware store in the rising trendy neighborhood of Corktown that is being redeveloped into a loft apartment for four tenants. This rebuild used some components from the initial building with a couple major changes to the front and side façade. I had the opportunity to design a couple different façade options along with Kevin and Shane’s guidance and we brainstormed different ways to make it look awesome and how to make them interchangeable. I enjoy getting the chance to work with people who love what they do and thoroughly understand the field of architecture and are so happy to discuss and share their knowledge.


I cannot wait to see what’s next!
