Ann Arbor’s Archiopolis Architects aims for energy efficient designs

Before green building became the new black, Ann Arbor-based Archiopolis Architects specialized in environmentally friendly designs.

"We’ve been doing this kind of work for a long time," says Bob Tinker, president of Archiopolis Architects. "We just didn't have a proper label for it."

The firm has done green architecture for some of Metro Detroit’s greenest companies, such as sustainable build outs at Avalon Bakery in Detroit's Cass Corridor and Mind, Body & Spirits restaurant in Rochester. Mind Body & Spirits is going for LEED certification and may be the greenest brewpub in Michigan.

The 3-year-old firm has three employees. It also has an internship program... which is where the company’s third employee came from.
