Spike Brewing | Milwaukee, WI

Spike Brewing Equipment is a nationally-recognized brewing equipment brand. Starting with a dated industrial building, GROTH Design Group updated the facade, created a retail space in the lobby, added a demonstration space and bar, and designed a remodeled, second floor office space.

This project presented unique design challenges, including implementing the Spike Brewing brand and achieving the desired street presence. Code challenges included size and separation of accessory uses, vertical circulation and egress. Further, this project was heavily funded by grants, including facade improvement and signage grants.

MobCraft Beer | Milwaukee, WI

This complete renovation turned a former parking garage into a gateway to the transforming 5th Street streetscape and corridor in Milwaukee’s Walker’s Point neighborhood. 

The project includes a new entry, exterior openings, exterior signage, brewing facility and storage, offices, restrooms and other support spaces such as coolers, and cold storage. The public tasting room space includes a bar, stage, seating areas and restrooms.

Throughout the renovation process, there was a strategy in place to engage street and local community. The building pulls people in from the street and lets its patrons filter out onto the sidewalks and street patios, attracting new life to the neighborhood.

Harbor House | Milwaukee, WI

Restauranteur Joe Bartolotta and philanthropist Michael Cudahy, acquired this aging restaurant and created one of Milwaukee’s finest restaurants located on the lakefront.

The existing long low continuous roof was lifted and divided into three sections. Each section was then repositioned at differing heights to create different views throughout the restaurant. The underside of the roof sections were then painted a light color to lighten the spaces and give an expansive feel.

The existing dining room floor was divided into two levels with the higher side on the south. The lower north side was raised to even the dining room floor and create a flexible space to accommodate large parties when needed.

The exterior patio to the west and the walk on the north side of the building were renovated with new masonry materials to create one of Milwaukee’s only venues that allows views of both Milwaukee’s skyline and Lake Michigan.

Groth Design Group collaborated with an interior design consultant.
