Detroit LANDMARK TRANSFORMED INTO COLLABORATIVE OFFICES
Detroit’s Federal Reserve Bank sat vacant for a decade before Bedrock Real Estate Services purchased the building. The classic revival style building annex, which was designed by Minoru Yamasaki, presented opportunities and challenges.
ROSSETTI re-imagined the dark corridors of the fourth floor, transforming the space into an urban loft-concept for its design studio.
The office is space planned into a series of open, collaborative workplace scenarios. A lab for design ideas, the office celebrates the bones of the building through natural patinas such as distressed wood, concrete and metal. The office also features several “third place” areas where employees meet and brainstorm.
The transformation of this historic building is an authentic expression of ROSSETTI’s culture. The office hosts more than 1,000 visitors and stages more than two dozen events each year of up to 500 people at a time.
