Thompson Detroit

Design Achievement – The Thompson Detroit is thoughtfully programmed for an elevated luxury market. Centrally located within Midtown Detroit, the hotel is designed as a destination in a neighborhood that attracts influential locals and sophisticated travelers. The design is driven by Detroit’s resilience and industrial roots contrasted with the timeless design and style of the Thompson brand. The result is a transformative addition to the architectural landscape of Midtown Detroit. The approach is to tap into, and amplify, the building’s contemporary lines with warmth and softness, complimenting the masculine with the feminine, resulting in a Thompson version of understated modern luxury.
