tradewind apartments

The Tradewind Apartments are located in Downtown Ann Arbor, across from the University of Michigan football stadium. This project is a renovation of an existing apartment complex. The goal was to re-invent the building and make it more appealing to the students attending the university.
New balconies were designed with a minimalistic approach to add dimensionality to the face of the building. The blue paint used on the exterior gradually lightens per level to help give the building a taller appearance and visual identity. The entries are all lined on the inside with the color Maize. Go Blue!
