ABOUT

Central Park Apartments provides residents a unique opportunity to live in a spacious Mid-Century Modern community in the historic Lafayette Park neighborhood of Downtown Detroit. Designed by Giffels and Rossetti with restoration under the auspices of Hamilton Anderson Associates, this newly restored community provides an authentic urban living experience. With expansive windows in the main living space, residents are visually connected to the outdoors: a courtyard view, terraced landscape or Lafayette Park.

These outdoor spaces are an extension of each unit and offer a place for community amenities (swimming pool, dog park and large lawn). Inside each unit, the original natural hardwood floors compliment the clean white kitchen cabinets, modern appliances, bright back splash and modern fittings throughout. The updated bathroom uses Mid-Century Modern influences with geometric tiles and a new vanity.

A short walk or bike ride to the Central Business District, Dequindre Cut, Eastern Market, Riverfront and all major employment centers in the Greater Downtown Area provides a balanced live-work-play experience for Central Park residents.

Mid-century modern is a term that describes a particular design sensibility generally associated with the period from 1940 through 1970, with its apex in 1950s post-ward American suburbs. Architecturally, the style is associated with flat or low pitched roofs, expansive walls of glass, open floor plans and clean unadorned details.

Physical and visual connections to outdoor space and an attention to space-making landscape design (with both plants and hardscape) yielded a new appreciation for the outdoors as an extension of the home. Furniture of the period borrowed from both organic and geometric forms using a mix of natural and man-made materials. The materials palette of mid-century modern furnishings and finishes experimented with traditional materials as well as materials introduced during the war (plastics, composites, laminates, fiberglass).

The mid-century modern color palette looks to natural materials for inspiration – ground, masonry and sky. Designers then contrast these natural colors with synthetic pigments for dynamic effect. Finally, mid-century modern palettes layer transparent, open surfaces to create volume.

Michigan has a particularly rich heritage of design in this period, with epicenters at Cranbrook (Eliel and Eero Saarinen, Florence Knoll, Charles and Ray Eames), Ann Arbor (numerous mid-century modern homes), Western Michigan (Herman Miller Furniture), and Midland (Alden B Dow homes and churches). In Detroit, notable buildings include Eero Saarinen’s General Motors Technical Center, Minoru Yamasaki’s One Woodward Avenue, and Lafayette Park, Mies Van der Rohe’s iconic collection of townhomes, towers, and neighborhood amenities (park, retail and school), which is a National Historic Landmark.
