Every detail at 400 Parent serves a useful purpose. The function is the form and it is in this relationship that the beauty of 400 Parent lies: the runs of steel piping, the geometric commercial grade aluminum windows, the dark seams that set off the individual wood panels of the front facade. Repetitious attention to design detail of this sort combines to make for an architecturally significant development.
Designed by McIntosh Poris Associates, these 8 lofts are cool and comfortable. A residence here is one that works well for a relaxing, low-key evening or a large (potentially very large) gathering of friends.
[Douglas] McIntosh and [Michael] Poris have been hailed as "peopIe who spark us... people Detroit desperately needs right now" by Detroit Hour Magazine. The firm's work has received four American Institute of Architects Awards of Honor, a Masonry Institute of Michigan Award, National Trust for Historic Preservation Awards, the Michigan Governor's Arts Award and has been published extensively, in the U.S. and abroad.
