Coolhouse Labs

CLIENT: East Huron, LLC
YEAR: 2015-Ongoing

As a shared workspace and event space for technology start-up companies, Coolhouse aims to spur the creation of a technology hub in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Coolhouse will be located in the Main Street Downtown historic district consisting of three existing buildings at 202, 206, and 208 Huron Street and will have a total of 25,010 SF when complete.

The Coolhouse workspace will be comprised of reserved, shared, and membership based workstations for multiple companies. Nutshell, Notion, and Coolhouse Labs will be the primary inhabitants along with other start-ups yet to be determined.

A flexible event space is envisioned for the existing garage space on the premises. This space will function both as shared workspace for members as well as for community events such as tech talks. The project budget is estimated at $80 per SF for the total construction cost, with an additional $20 per SF for furniture.
