Design Inspired by Community

Driven Design Studio is an architecture firm rooted in community and driven by design. We view architecture as a craft of design, development, and construction. There are lots of moving pieces in these processes and we are here to keep them moving forward.

Design Inspired By YOU

Your passion is what fuels our designs. We strive to design spaces that people want to be in and that is also how we define the success of our projects.  We want to collaborate with you to make your community a better place to live, work and play!





Project Spotlight


Coming soon to downtown Battle Creek is an urban market. The market is to feature fresh, locally grown food and deli for all to enjoy.


Cafe Rica moved into 62 East Michigan Avenue in Battle Creek, Michigan in March 2020. The new space significantly increased their existing size and allowed for an open kitchen, unique dining experience and spaces for live music, gathering, and working. The space has quickly become the downtown gathering space.


Craving a hot bowl of your favorite ramen? Head over to Umami Ramen's new location at 215 W Michigan Ave, Battle Creek. While there, sit out on their new patio and try our favorite, dumplings. Yum!

Areas of Expertise


Driven Design Studio has a passion for old buildings. Whether it be a historic home you are looking to renovate or a 10,000 square foot commercial building, we are here to support you through the process. We can assist with the grant process, historic tax credits, building analysis, and feasibility studies.


Well-designed commercial spaces are imperative to the success of any business, be it the workplace, retail store, restaurant, or medical facility. By using our architectural and design skills and abilities, we can assist with accomplishing your goals. Creative design thinking, space planning and precise execution are all critical elements for successful commercial spaces.

Interior Design

Interior design is a powerful and essential part of any commercial project. It affects how we live, work and play. Our licensed designers go beyond selecting colors and furnishings by applying their technical skills and expertise to ensure your indoor spaces are functional, safe and beautiful.


Driven Design Studio offers excellent visualization options for your project. We create high quality, photo realistic depictions to help our clients understand what the finished project will look like and to help reduce in-field confusion and frustration during construction. We can provide snapshots, animations and virtual reality walkthroughs.
