Stage of Development
History: Chroma was originally built in 1913 as a storage facility by Rudolph C. Gernt.
Community Engagement: As a creative space, outreach to the design, craft, maker, music and food communities was critical to informing and supporting the project through its development and occupancy. To honor the neighborhood's legacy and passion for the arts, The Platform commissioned Detroit artist Syndey G. James to paint "Girl With The D Earring" on the west facade.
On Design Excellence: The design intention at Chroma is to celebrate the character of its concrete interior while opening up its brick exterior in a way that honors the building’s martini column structure and its notable mural. The interior is designed with a mix of utility and hospitality from the cellar to the 9th floor.
