Project Description

The Exchange Bar & Grill did a major renovation of their building in Northville, MI. They are invested into the “fifth elevation” of their building, their rooftop, to enhance the customers experience. This includes a rooftop bar and patio as well as an extensive green roof. This space has been a major success and we highly recommend stopping by the next time you are in the neighborhood.

Inhabitect, LLC was hired by the General Contractor on this project because we specialize in designing, building and growing unique living spaces, both on rooftops and on the ground. We are thrilled to have played a role in the install of  extensive green roof and pedestal pavers.
