THE KRESGE FOUNDATION DETROIT OFFICE
The Detroit office for the Kresge Foundation seeks to augment the beauty of a historic Midtown building, while embodying collegiality and sophistication. The solution deploys common elements such as gypsum board partitions, suspended ceilings, and a contemporary wainscot as a counterpoint to existing materials.
Furniture and finishes were selected for their ephemeral or natural properties, and design elements such as “cracks, bevels, and frames” heighten
an awareness of the interior’s contrapuntal nature.
