Our Company

Wright Street Design Group is an award winning, design oriented, architecture and construction firm primarily focusing on residential design. Our work has been featured in Better Homes and Gardens, Detroit Home, Professional Remodeler, Custom Home, Fine Home Building, and Professional Builder magazines. Our projects range in size and variety - from a single coffee table - to a kitchen or bath - to an addition, remodeling or renovation - to a new home and more.

When working with a client the most important step for us is to listen carefully. It’s our role, we believe, to act as our client’s instrument; the translator of their goals. We do not prescribe or impose, rather we solve each client’s particular design program while closely involving them in the process. Close collaboration with our clients allows us to better understand their desires, tastes, and priorities. By better knowing our clients, we’re able to produce better design solutions. Every project we undertake is a unique and enduring response to a specific place and a specific set of needs of our client.

As architects we are committed to providing residential solutions that offer a perfect balance of aesthetics, budget and technical expertise - from utilizing the natural features of a site for minimal disturbance, maximum solar gain and visual impact - to incorporating the optimal structural system - to combining up to date energy conserving practices with the most efficient heating and cooling options - to specifying and detailing the most appropriate materials for longevity, durability and sustainability.

Our Background

Stanley Monroe is founder, owner and principal designer of Wright Street Design Group. Stan has led design teams for a range of institutional, religious, commercial, and residential projects through out his career. Accomplished in all phases of architectural services, his project experience has included health care facilities, recreational facilities, commercial, retail and multi-family and single family residential, but it was residential design that truly piqued his interest.

His love of residential architecture led him to found Wright Street Design Group in 1986 in order to focus on residential design. Stan’s initial experiences in his practice still left him wanting. Builders did not consistently offer quality results and often took liberties with design intent. Separating the design and construction process as traditionally done did not produce the best results for his clients. For this reason he began building the homes he designed for his clients in 1988.

He is a registered architect in the states of Michigan and Texas, and a licensed builder in the state of Michigan. He earned a Bachelor of Science in Architecture (1974) and a Master of Architecture degree (1977 from the University of Michigan College of Architecture and Urban Planning. He is a Member of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry, International Code Council and of the US Green Building Council.
