Gachot Studios’ Shinola Hotel in Downtown Detroit

Our friends at Gachot Studios, in collaboration with local firm Kraemer Design Group, have, 11 months since, broken ground on the Shinola Hotel for Downtown Detroit, which will be created within two existing buildings and additional new infill buildings along Woodward Avenue in Downtown Detroit. The hotel makes up 130 rooms and retail volumes at grade. The new infill buildings will connect the existing structures and extend their footprints. When completed the interlocked buildings will be characterized by a variegated material- and color-palette which the designers hope will better match the fabric of the surrounding city. Shinola initially began as a watch company and now produces leather goods, bicycles, and audio equipment. (The retail space of the new hotel will not include a Shinola outpost.)
