  • 2. 1420 Broadway Detroit, Mi 48226 KraemerDesignGroup 313.965.3399 phone 313.965.3555 facsimile www.thekraemeredge.com Google Birmingham, MI Concentrating on advertising sales for the “Big Three,” the design of the office took on an appropriate automotive theme. With 18’ tall, black and white graphics of classic automobiles, and exposed duct work to mimic the underside of an automobile, the space has become a truly unique addition to the Google family of offices. In addition to the office space, Google has created the Now cafe. This 2,00 square foot retail space provides free wireless Internet, large LCD TV screens, and plenty of coffee to support the surrounding community.

  • 3. 1420 Broadway Detroit, Mi 48226 KraemerDesignGroup 313.965.3399 phone 313.965.3555 facsimile www.thekraemeredge.com The Lofts of Merchants Row Detroit, Michigan The Lofts of Merchants Row is an adaptive reuse project that creates a 178,000 square foot complex which combines five nationally registered historic buildings and one new “ground-up” building into a new mixed-use development. The two city block of buildings were once used for retail and warehouse space for several of Detroit’s most popular department stores will now blend “Loft Style” residential living and commercial retail environments. With the addition of a ten story parking structure, the entire Merchants Row development becomes an asset to the surrounding Campus Martius area. By retaining and embracing the historic nature of the existing buildings, the development was able to utilize Historic Tax Credits, Brownfield Tax Credits and Obsolete Building Tax Credits to aid in the financing of the project.

The units range in size from 650 square feet Studios to 2,600 square feet two story-Three Bedroom units with roof top decks. Featured in: CAM Magazine, October 2005 page 2 of 2
  • 5. 1420 Broadway Detroit, Mi 48226 KraemerDesignGroup 313.965.3399 phone 313.965.3555 facsimile www.thekraemeredge.com Private Loft Detroit, Michigan The “regeneration” of the penthouse of this historic building into a private residential loft was a joint effort in detailed design expertise and construction ingenuity. Starting with a bare palette and a large, voluminous space, the client wanted functional living space that allowed for work as well as entertaining, but with a sophisticated and contemporary feel that was juxtaposed against the original features of the building. The solution was to keep minimal space for the two bedrooms and leave the majority of the loft as living space. Photographed by Christopher Lark 1 of 2
  • 6. 1420 Broadway Detroit, Mi 48226 KraemerDesignGroup 313.965.3399 phone 313.965.3555 facsimile www.thekraemeredge.com Private Loft Detroit, Michigan From the time a guest gets off the elevator and sees the cherry veneer clad curved wall, marble floor and 22 foot ceiling, walks down the hallway with the built in book shelves, and into the living room with the wood floor and 12 foot windows, custom fireplace unit and custom entertainment center, it is obvious that the client was serious about his desire to have beautiful, simple materials accompany the clean, crisp living space and have all of that complement the existing assets of the space itself. The original brick walls, windows and the skylights were updated to complete the renovation of the building itself. This loft is one fine example of how new and old are intertwined to create a masterful outcome that fills the desire to have a contemporary space in an historic building.

  • 7. 1420 Broadway Detroit, Mi 48226 KraemerDesignGroup 313.965.3399 phone 313.965.3555 facsimile www.thekraemeredge.com Hilton Garden Inn Detroit, Michigan The newest ground-up hotel in Detroit is located in Harmonie Park; close to the new home of the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park and the Detroit Lions at Ford Field. This ten story, limited service hotel has 198 rooms, a full bar and restaurant, meeting rooms, indoor pool and a 2-story glass atrium rotunda. This will be a signature project in Detroit because it has been almost 10 years since any new hotel facilities have been built. Not only is it the first new hotel in Detroit in years, it is also the first project in Southeastern Michigan to use an innovative new structural brick curtain wall system. This new system allows for the elimination of shelf angles at each floor which carry the typical brick facade, as the entire weight of the facade is transferred through the brick directly to the reinforced mat foundation. Omitting the shelf angles amounts to a substantial savings over typical brick facade construction. While this cost saving system has been used successfully on projects out of state, Kraemer Design Group was the first to bring this technology to the Detroit area.

  • 8. 1420 Broadway Detroit, Mi 48226 KraemerDesignGroup 313.965.3399 phone 313.965.3555 facsimile www.thekraemeredge.com Clear!Blue, Inc. Birmingham, Michigan The second office KDG created for Clear!Blue is steps away from their original location that was outgrown in December 2001. This space is significantly larger, 6,000 square feet, and is located on a prominent corner in downtown Birmingham. The space will now hold up to 24 staff and includes a large reception area, open workspace area, two conference rooms, and a project room. The large presentation conference room is curved and has translucent fish-scale panels with sliding doors that allow light to filter through and out to the main work area. An employee break area features a freestanding bar with stools and lounge chairs in front of a wall finished with an erasable marker surface. The area is illuminated with track lighting and a barrel vault skylight. The overall space is a contrast of beautifully finished floors, lighting and furnishings with raw, exposed loft ceiling and existing brick walls.

The conceptual plan has an entry and conference room that “wows” the client when they enter the office, with large swinging conference room doors with wheels and projection surface. Attached to the outside of the conference room curved wall is a small private work area/phone booth, and community table. A main street at one side of the space leads through the open design studio with workstations, lounge area and a foosball arena. At the end of the main street are private offices and a computer room.

  • 10. 1420 Broadway Detroit, Mi 48226 KraemerDesignGroup 313.965.3399 phone 313.965.3555 facsimile www.thekraemeredge.com NTH Detroit Detroit, Michigan NTH Consultants sought Kraemer Design Group’s assistance in becoming Ford Field’s first commercial tenant, consolidating over 40 employees into 13,000 square feet of open office space. KDG was charged with blending NTH’s corporate identity into the former J. L. Hudson warehouse architecture. Existing concrete columns were painted and left exposed, highlighted at the ceiling with a metal trim ring and contemporary track lighting. Custom millwork at the reception and waiting area outside the conference rooms also expressed the circular theme. Conference rooms were located to take advantage of the end zone vantage point.

  • 11. 1420 Broadway Detroit, Mi 48226 KraemerDesignGroup 313.965.3399 phone 313.965.3555 facsimile www.thekraemeredge.com Delta Vision Okemos, Michigan The second 2,500 square foot optometry shop for a Lansing eye doctor located in a fast growing, upscale community. The design of this space is targeted at a younger and affluent clientele, with a contemporary and innovative use of common materials. The fixtures, millwork and seating are built-in with a neutral color fiberboard. The color and excitement is emphasized in the carpet pattern and the paint. The use of contemporary manufacturer’s displays also give the space a high-tech look. Featured in: CAM Magazine, September 2001 Awarded: The Doc Award of Excellence, 2001
  • 12. 1420 Broadway Detroit, Mi 48226 KraemerDesignGroup 313.965.3399 phone 313.965.3555 facsimile www.thekraemeredge.com Turner Construction Company Detroit, Michigan The renovation of the 2nd floor of the historic Buhl Building for the Detroit headquarters of the Turner Construction Company offered great opportunities as well as challenges for Kraemer Design Group. KDG was engaged to design a modern, functional 12,000 square foot office that would be representational of Turner’s leading role in the field. KDG’s space planning and interior design skills were challenged in creating a space that encompassed four departments, yet was clear and easy to understand by visiting specialists. In response to the diverse program, the plan was subdivided through a series of nodes to help orient visitors within the space. The new office was also an opportunity to showcase the abilities of Turner Construction as they undertook the build out of the space themselves. The complex forms of the nodes as well as the exposed structural and framing members denote the quality and care taken in the construction. KDG sought to provide a space that not only compliments, but enhances, the identity of Turner Construction Company. Featured in: CAM Magazine, August 2000
  • 13. 1420 Broadway Detroit, Mi 48226 KraemerDesignGroup 313.965.3399 phone 313.965.3555 facsimile www.thekraemeredge.com Davis & Kuhnke, PC - Law Office Ann Arbor, Michigan A progressive 1,800 square foot adaptive reuse of an existing 120 year old house into a high profile attorney’s office in the historic downtown business district of the City of Ann Arbor. This project entailed the addition of ramps, stairs, and canopies on the building exterior in order to render the space fully accessible. These modern interventions recall the forms and materiality of traditional farmhouse vernacular while making a bold statement. The interior of the building was completely redesigned with extensive custom millwork and furnishings, unique finishes, and spectacular lighting to provide an exciting and comfortable work environment.
