Community. Connection. Belonging.


Each community has unique needs and attributes.

When designing for our clients’ community spaces, GROTH Design Group Community Studio team takes into consideration these unique characteristics to build cohesive environments that add value for the community.

Our team engages with stakeholders to gain a full understanding of their goals. We collaboratively build consensus, to ensure that design solutions are fully understood and embraced.

We create public amenities that activate spaces and provide opportunities for individuals to gather, socialize and celebrate. Engaging community spaces facilitate inclusive connectivity and are foundational for thriving environments.

Cedar Creek Park Bandshell

A former retail space was purchased and GROTH Design Group was asked to partner once again with the Senior Activity Center to transform a vacant building into a vital community asset. The new center, Uptown Social, serves as a main activity hub for the community.
The bandshell design was inspired by the various historical elements throughout the town, such as the classic stone buildings and the steel train bridge.
The Wisconsin Museum of Quilts & Fiber Arts is located on a designated historic farmstead site approximately one mile east of historic downtown Cedarburg.
The project involves a reconfiguration of the arts center’s performance & classroom spaces. An addition provides much needed storage.
GROTH Design Group worked with Pathfinders to remodel their existing 15,000 SF building and create new exterior points of entry.
GROTH Design Group was engaged to assist in the plan and design of a new 20,000 SF facility to house the offices of the DPR.
