Detroit’s most refined historic venue, The Colony Club, is now crowned by three equally sophisticated leasable offices. These once vacant spaces have long been diamonds in the rough, and PTD took inspiration from the existing character-rich exposed brick and gold-leaf murals and infused the spaces with an effortless blend of industrial and traditional elements.

The star of these build-outs are the communal kitchens that occur at each floor. The dedication to craftsmanship and material are a nod to the level of handcraft that existed at the time of the building’s original construction. The design works with the bones of the existing brick and clean white drywall creates a stunning juxtaposition against the texture of the original walls.

An expansive stone and walnut island anchors the kitchen and creates the perfect gathering space. Brass hardware and delicate brass grating face cabinets and a statement fixture creates a focal point for the space. The result is a classic space that boasts all the amenities of a modern office.
