50 years of design
Award-winning and noted Bloomfield Hills architect Lou DesRosiers is celebrating the 50th anniversary of his architecture firm, DesRosiers Architects, 36330 Woodward Avenue, Suite 100, which he opened in 1972. DeRosiers, who has designed many homes in Birmingham, Bloomfield and southeast Michigan, among other locales around the country – winning 200 awards along the way – believes he was destined to be an architect – following in the footsteps of his grandfather and father, who was noted for building the stone chapel at St. Hugo of the Hills. His first project, his own 6,400 square foot residence for his wife JoJo in Bloomfield Hills, was built in 1972 after he graduated with his degree from Lawrence Technical Institute. From classic to traditional homes to the most modern, DesRosiers and his staff say they envision residences around the homeowners’ individual needs, desires and lifestyles while incorporating the most up-to-date technologies and finest materials. “Our homes are created to enhance and highlight their natural surroundings, seamlessly blending the indoors and outdoors,” he describes. “The philosophy of our firm is to design structures that are refined, awe-inspiring and timeless.”
