Ford House Visitors Center
Grosse Pointe Shores, Michigan
Designer: Luci Creative
The Ford House Visitor Center welcomes visitors to the iconic Ford family’s estate and home. The visitor center introduces families, school groups, and tourists to Eleanor and Edsel Ford’s life and legacy. Visitors are invited into the Ford’s private life through a living room-inspired lobby. They experience the unguarded side of the loving couple through a media collage of home video clips and a digital Ford family scrap book. A changing exhibit space provides the Center with the ability to host temporary and traveling exhibits. The space can accommodate large-scale artifacts, including automobiles.
Ravenswood Studio worked closely with the Ford House, SmithGroup, Frank Rewold and Son Inc., Luci Creative, Richard Lewis Media Group, and Creative Technology to create an environment that reflected and pays homage to the almost 100 year old historic house. Custom cabinetry and cases protect original Ford family photographs and personal items, as well as mansion artifacts.
