French & Michigan is a multidisciplinary studio, workshop, and gallery devoted to strengthening collaboration between art and design through the development of a visual and built environment.
F&M Studio provides residential, commercial, and landscape design-build services. Projects are a result of extensive research, collaboration, planning, and development of each client’s unique design challenges. Client needs include new buildings, renovations, fabrications, and landscape.
F&M Workshop is an endeavor to rethink design and build concepts through the physical act of making. Working within a repurposed 1940’s auto repair shop, designers and makers share an environment where ideas are explored through dialogue and iterative process to create objects reflective of function, quality, and craft.
F&M Gallery represents the creative endeavors of French & Michigan as well as cultivating and furthering the careers of artists through resources, exhibitions, and publications. Gallery programs and events engage with the community and advocate for the benefit of supporting artists and their work.
Prioritizing community outreach, French & Michigan works with numerous nonprofits and student groups. Most recently, F&M launched the architecture residency program Maxwell House for graduate students in partnership with local arts patron Mike Casey.
