Birmingham, MI – March 24, 2020 – Each year, Metro Detroit’s design community celebrates winners of the Annual Detroit Home Design Awards honoring professionals of award-winning home design. The 16th annual event was presented by DOBI Real Estate on Tuesday, March 24th, 2020 at The Fillmore Detroit and honored MainStreet Design Build with two awards, both for the same project: 2nd place award for Exterior Use of Color (Paint, Doors, Shutters, etc.) and 3rd place award for Contemporary Architecture (up to 4,000 square feet).
This year, instead of the traditional ceremony, the Detroit Home Design Awards were hosted on a live stream presentation.
An independent panel was selected from outside Michigan. Judges were drawn from national media (print and television), respected academic institutions, and private practice, and included nationally recognized names from design and architecture. These judges reviewed hundreds of entries and chose winners from multiple categories including Details, Exteriors, Interiors, Commercial Design, and Home Design.
MainStreet Design Build was among those category winners for Exterior Use of Color. View second-place award: https://detroitdesignmag.com/detroit-design-awards/2020-detroit-home-design-awards-presentation/.

“Our challenge with this project was modifying the front façade of a 1951 Royal Oak Colonial into a mid-century modern,” said MainStreet’s VP and Certified Kitchen Designer Christine Ramaekers. “We started by staining the original limestone a translucent greige and painting the brick to coordinate. Then, we replaced the old box bay with symmetrical casement windows, added black trim details, and modified the entire front porch to create a focal point.”
“We are happy to be included among the many designers who were recognized for their design ingenuity,” says added MainStreet’s President Steven Ramaekers. “We take great pride in our work and certainly appreciate the recognition.”

Just a note to commend you on a job well done. We now have our dream kitchen! Your crew was great to work with. They were professional, trustworthy and hard working.
Thank you to the entire team for making our home ‘fit’ us! From the first consultation, you understood this wasn’t about trying to make a small house huge. We needed it to suit our lives better, and that is what you gave us.
MainStreet was honest and upfront about the cost of our addition. There were no surprises – they did not low ball up front to add on at the end. The quality and professionalism of the entire team was outstanding. You truly get what you pay for with MainStreet.
We love our kitchen, and MainStreet made that happen! With the help of Steve, Christine and their talented staff, we were able to add a lot more creativity and attractiveness to the design of our kitchen.
Our experience was very positive, we found MainStreet to be very professional, and considerate of our ideas. The job finished very close to the time estimated, which can be rare in that business!
MainStreet’s quality of work was excellent and its employees were very knowledgeable, courteous, and professional.
We love where we live – but we needed to add more space for our growing family. We were impressed with Steve’s design suggestions for better use of space and enhancements to our plans. They really do focus on quality and integrity in every aspect of their work.
They did an excellent job of design. Some very creative design features. They did a great job.
We love our new Kitchen and Mudroom. We appreciate the effort, commitment and quality provided by the entire team at Main Street. Thank you! Kyle and Main Street Team were a pleasure to work with through the build process. The timeline including trades was on target. Co-Construct was an effective way to manage communication and any changes that were delivered throughout the project. The design and deliverables were as expected.
I can’t think of a way that they fell short. I was satisfied with the assistance that I received with regards to picking out the various pieces.
