Michael H. Pattullo, AIA

President | Shoreline Architecture & Design

Petoskey, Michigan

Michael H. Pattullo, AIA, president at Shoreline Architecture & Design Inc., has an affinity for the problem-solving portion of a project where building programs or design solutions meet specific parameters and are brought up to the point of construction documents.

“I enjoy that part of the broader picture and working out the design solutions and the basics of design with regard to proportion and massing. I feel like it is the part we can have the most impact,” Pattullo said. “What separates good architecture from bad is the ability to solve that problem successfully and design a building with appropriate things that visually and functionally make sense.”

Pattullo has served as President at the high-end, full-service architectural design firm in Petoskey since 2007 and has been practicing architecture since the 1990s. Prior to moving to Petoskey in 1998, Pattullo worked as a Financial Analyst and Project Manager for the Ford Motor Land Development Company and earned a Masters of Architecture and a Master of Business Administration from the University of Michigan.
