More focused on pattern, and less on color, spaces were intentionally designed for patterns to meld and enhance visual interest. Design intent was to visualize and carry through an explosion of patterns and texture throughout the 9 floors.
Neumann/Smith renovated 9 floors of Detroit’s 1962 One Woodward building to accommodate the growing demand for space in the city’s technology district.
The fit-out creates flexible floor plates for 15,600 sf on each floor. To accommodate new tenants and rejuvenate the building, the entire core was upgraded. Modernization of tenant floors focused on increasing the visual appeal and functionality to aid in attracting new vibrant businesses to the building.
Complementing the renovations is a first-class, special events and training space on the building’s second floor. A redesign of the entire floor included the enclosure of a large event room with a stage, AV technology and associated staging area to support the space, a pre-function/bar lobby, a catering kitchen, an open lobby and elevator space with high-end finishes, and new bathroom core.
