Next up in the emerging Detroit Design District at Cass and Canfield in Midtown, Patrick Thompson Design
will relocate its design studio from the Detroit Creative Corridor Center
to the Auburn Building.
The five-person commercial and residential interior design firm had been working out of the DC3, but as the firm continues to grow they need more space of their own. Their new home in the Auburn is 900 square feet, and the build out is almost complete.
"We really want to have a presence in the neighborhood in Detroit," says owner Patrick Thompson. "A lot of our work is Detroit-based. It seemed a really good fit with the other businesses in that area." While the storefront isn't actually a store
but a working studio, Thompson says, "People are welcome to stop by, meet the team and see our work. There won't be items for sale but people can see our creative process."
Patrick Thompson Design started in a spare bedroom in 2009 before moving into the basement, then into the DC3 a year and a half ago. Currently the firm is overseeing the renovation of the Kresge Court inside the DIA
, which will be called the Cultural Living Room
, and a renovation of TechTown
's whole first floor, in addition to several residential projects in the city and suburbs.
The Patrick Thompson Design studio is targeted to open May 7.
