Force of Nature

DesRosiers Architects, an award-winning architectural firm located in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan has specialized in custom residential, institutional, and commercial design for five decades, working with clients to tailor solutions that fit their personality, lifestyle, and brand. Founded and led by third-generation architect, Louis DesRosiers, AIA, president, the firm has built upon a rich legacy in traditional and contemporary design, supported by a team of registered architects, technical draftspersons, and designers.

Its residential architecture portfolio is one that reflects a pursuit to create a physical statement through a harmony of art and structure, inviting the natural beauty of the surrounding landscape into the home, whether dynamic mountain range or compelling freshwater shoreline. While diverse in style and scale, each project reflects a balance of functional performance, creative solutions, and artistic detailing, in which spaces are defined by sculptural staircases, stepped ceilings, rich materiality, and stunning views to the outdoors.

For DesRosiers, architecture is an inspired and creative vocation that has been a part of his family for generations, and as the firm commemorates its 50th anniversary in operation, he shares his story in film, revealing the inspiration behind the work, the passion that continue to drive the firm today, and a love of architecture that endures.
