Patrick Thompson Design Clio Surfaces

1st Place – Patrick Thompson Design

Bright white walls and black ceilings emphasize the beauty of Minnesota’s Clio Surfaces showroom materials. Anchoring the showroom is a service counter that appears to float above its delicate, recessed base, while slabs of stone are displayed gallery-style in custom black steel frames. The pièce de résistance may very well be the white oak-framed, bookmatched statuario marble slabs that are a striking focal point and remind customers that a beautiful piece of stone is a work of art.

Judge’s Insights

“I love the rug, the wall art (not shown in this photo), and the industrial ceiling (in Clio Surfaces’ showroom).”

— Judge Dana Gibson

1st Place – Patrick Thompson Design

In the mid-1920s, Detroit’s Metropolitan building was home to multiple jewelry manufacturers and retailers. The Monarch Club is now the gem atop this newly renovated architectural crown. The bar has the feel of a private club, minus the exclusivity. Breathtaking views of the city are framed by rich painted millwork, luxe velvet banquettes, and buttery leather chairs. Guests can relax on deep leather couches or cozy up to one of the outdoor firepits.

The goal for this white box build-out (Lorient Capital in Birmingham) was to create a hip, open concept office designed for future expansion. Five private offices with glass fronts and sliding glass barn doors offer privacy without being visually shut out from the rest of the office. The focal point of this workspace is the show kitchen, finished with gloss-white custom cabinetry, a large island with quartz counters, and walnut shelves. Decorative light fixtures help bring the scale down around defined seating areas.

1st Place – Patrick Thompson Design

The designers’ intent for this 1929 Art Deco skyscraper (the David Stott Building in Detroit) was to complement the lobby’s architectural features. Pink Tennessee marble walls, brass details, and ornate elevators provided a wealth of form and materials to reference. The height of the lobby is accentuated by paneled walls, topped by crown molding that matches the historic profile, while modern light fixtures take cues from the brass grilles and surrounds. A marble reception desk incorporates a brass inlay and features a custom light fixture above.

Design inspirations for this new veterinary hospital (The Orion Animal Care Center in Lake Orion) were drawn from classic Southern carriage houses and stables. Construction materials were carefully selected to provide sustainable, recycled, and responsible long-life products. Reclaimed brick was harvested from abandoned residences. Natural light is prominent throughout the structure, with clerestory windows running along both sides of the main roof ridge. The facility features a refined beauty throughout.

Judge’s Insights

A mindful project (The Orion Animal Care Center) with lovely consideration for the context of the surrounding homes, and specifying sustainable materials.

Comprised of three separate buildings in Detroit, DuCharme Place Apartments green roofs are interconnected by a series of pedestrian bridges, allowing the residents to fully utilize the unique spaces. The main green roof has areas for relaxing, grilling, and entertaining. The secondary lawn space provides space for resident recreation and activities. The third portion of green roof encompasses a fitness plaza. Mass plantings and varied material heights give residents a level of privacy from common areas without hindering views to the outdoors.
