Our Venue History
Studio D2D has three grand and historic Event Venues for you to choose from! The City View and Loft Venues at 401 Hall St in Grand Rapids, Michigan, were constructed in 1908 by Terrell’s Equipment Company as “Plant 2” for the Metal Office Furniture Company (later Steelcase). These beautiful venues feature exposed brick walls, immense wooden beams, and large windows that fill the spaces with natural light.
The Harris Building at 111 Division Ave S, Grand Rapids, Michigan, was built in 1892 on the site of the former Grand Rapids Union Brewery. The first-floor was dedicated to retail space, while the second and third floors were known as Eureka Lodge No. 2 by members of a secret fraternal organization called the Knights of Pythias. The second floor features a large domed ballroom with 18-foot ceilings, and the third floor has skylight-illuminated hallways. The entire building is a testament to history with its brick walls and craftsman style woodwork.
The three venues have been thoughtfully designed to accomodate large events, including up to 300 guests for reception only, or 225 for ceremony and reception together. We have done our best to keep the historic integrity of each location while creating highly functioning event spaces. Our venues have a rich history that has expanded with time to encompass your memories and special events. We are thankful to have a part in that history; we are excited to share this experience with you as well!
