1+1+ Architects is a licensed architecture studio in Detroit, Michigan. 1+1+ scales down by working with local businesses, developers, and nonprofits, and scales up by engaging in systemic issues shaping our built environment today, including housing, adaptive reuse, and climate change.
Treating tangible materials and intangible forces as part of the same matter, 1+1+ draws from research to realize built and speculative works. From exploring collage arrangements to part-to-whole relationships, our work embraces difference to achieve common goals.
Our designs and spaces generate unexpected and pleasurable experiences, while anticipating future change to care for the social, cultural, and financial longevity of our clients and their communities. 1+1+ has worked with many small businesses, institutions, and nonprofit organizations including Coriander Kitchen & Farm, 555 Arts, Recycle Here!, Sozai, Barton Malow, and the Henry Ford Hospital System.
