Cranbrook Fiber and Ceramics’ Graduates Create Linens and Porcelain Trays for Siren Hotel

June 6th, 2018

ASH NYC and Quinn Evans Architects restore the 1926 Wurlitzer Building at the Siren Hotelwhere the bed linens and covers as well as porcelain trays were created by Cranbrook Academy of Art Fiber and Ceramics departments. Constructed in 1926 by architect Robert Finn, the building was once a lighthouse for local musicians — the largest record and instrument store in the entire world, brought to its knees during the crisis. Maintaining and restructuring the historical beauty of the building, ASH NYC and Quinn Architects have preserved the travertine flooring, stucco on the ceiling (a touch of Italian inspiration), and finishes in terracotta. Now, the over 5000 square meters in downtown Detroit makes its debut as a 106 room hotel.
