Curwood Place Project
The Curwood Place Project is a renovation of an existing mixed-use building in the Historic Curwood Park in Owosso, Michigan. The building will have apartments for short term leases on the second level and will also provide its future tenants with a private gym in the basement of the building. The apartments were designed to establish a feeling of comfort for those who are making Owosso their home for a short period of time. The first floor is designed to be a community hub composed of extra classrooms for the neighboring Shiawassee Arts Center, a gift shop for the art center, a tea/coffee room, and a restaurant. The design of the tea/coffee room and restaurant invoke the idea of art coming to life through color. Through this design, a strong connection is made between all programs on the first floor.
