In January 2016, 1701 Bespoke — a custom menswear brand — opened a bricks-and-mortar location in Midtown Detroit. The challenge was to create a warm, inviting location in what used to be a tired, third-floor apartment. The industrial elements of the worn wood floor, exposed wood, and metal beams were highlighted, while deep paint colors, rich textiles and rugs, and classic marble and brass details added a layer of sophistication reflective of the brand. The result is a space that’s relaxed and comfortable, yet tailored and elegant.

The Kruizenga Art Museum aspires to become a landmark on Holland’s Hope College campus. The 15,000-square-foot museum and first-class learning venue, named in honor of Dr. Richard and Margaret Kruizenga of Holland, Mich. — Hope College graduates who wanted their leadership gift to be something unusual — is a statement building that, from a bird’s-eye view, is reminiscent of an artist’s palette. Positioned in the center of the campus, the Modernist structure creates a dialog with its surroundings and provides a counterpoint to the existing backdrop of red-brick, traditional collegiate architecture.

This 250,000-square-foot office building on Tower Drive in Troy was developed in 1986; its interior was unappealing to the corporate clientele its new owner was targeting. A warm, innovative, and sophisticated design direction was established, maximizing its attractiveness to prospective tenants. The details and color palette are refined, using multiple textures. Transforming the building’s public spaces provided the owner and leasing brokers with an attractive space to market. In the end, the entire building was leased and then sold to the tenant resulting in a win-win for the owners.


Judge’s Insights

"The Davis & Davis lobby, in a building designed in the 1980s, has gone through a great transformation with its new details and color palette. It’s very elegant, warm, and modern. The rocks and greenery are welcoming.”

Due to the renovation of this light industrial building, new front offices and a conference room can now support One Care’s larger distribution operation in the warehouse space. The conference room affords privacy thanks to a band of film that obscures oblique views through the glass, and most of the building’s offices have easterly morning light that streams in through floor-toceiling glass walls.
