Studio Apartment

Studio Apartment is an interior renovation of a 570 SF unit overlooking Lafayette Park.

A long-neglected studio apartment on the 16th floor of Gunnar Birkerts first—and only—residential building was fully renovated with new finishes and a remodeled kitchen/bath. While the view overlooking Detroit remains unchanged, the studio is now a place worthy of retreat and retrospection.

Location: Lafayette Park, Detroit, Michigan
Site characteristics: Existing studio unit in 28-story apartment building.
Size: 570 SF
Construction cost: withheld
