McDonald's Restaurant

Ann Arbor, MI

General public opposition to a fast food restaurant in the heart of downtown Ann Arbor required a unique solution. Traditional building materials arranged in an intricate composition and a tastefully designed stained glass window displaying the corporate golden arches work to achieve this goal. The restaurant became a warm and friendly  addition to the community, gaining respect for a commercial structure in a historic setting.

Bill Hobbs:

"We didn't have visions of grandeur at all. We didn't have a clue we would grow to be as big as we've grown. We were just a small town architect, slugging it out with all the competition. But back during that day we were very active in the community. John [Hinkley] was active in Manchester and he eventually became mayor of Manchester; and Richard [Black] served on the Ann Arbor Planning Commission; and I served on the Ann Arbor Chamber of Commerce and the Ann Arbor Youth Commission. We were just spreading our wings."
