Will, together with his daughter Shane, designed the store in partnership with Birmingham-based McIntosh Poris Associates, the  lead architect of the store, and Micco Construction in Pontiac and Architectural Salvage Warehouse Detroit completed the build out.

The painstaking attention to detail in its design was met with a commitment to maintaining some of the original look of the space, and an effort to utilize locally sourced building materials.

“The design was inspired by the original elements of the building – tile, terrazzo floor, exposing the ceiling,” says Shane.
