Kraemer Design Group is excited to serve as the Architect of Record and Historic Consultant for the first-ever Shinola Hotel, located at 1400 Woodward in downtown Detroit. The scope of this project involves the rehabilitation of two historic buildings and the design of three newly constructed buildings. Located on the corner of Woodward and Grand River, the building was constructed in 1915 and expanded in 1925. Formerly known as the Armstrong Building, the Rayl Building and the Meyer Jewelry Building, this century-old building is Detroit’s best example of art nouveau Sullivanesque-style architecture. Two parcels north at 1416 Woodward is the Singer Building, the other historic building that will rehabilitated as part of this project. It was built in 1936 and is known for being home to the Singer Sewing Machine Company. Its primary façade is clad with limestone, and it has an understated neo-classical design. Two of the three new construction buildings will be on Woodward, with one standing eight and a half stories tall and the other five stories tall. The third new construction building will be located along Farmer Street and will offer additional restaurants, retail, and event spaces for the hotel. The five combined buildings will contain approximately 130 hotel guest rooms, and the Shinola Hotel is scheduled to be completed in late 2018.
