Hi, I'm Roger Berent

Architect, Designer and founder of Berent Architecture.

I have worked with over 150 clients to use design and architecture to help them live a rich life. That could mean renovating an existing building, creating a site plan approval package, developing a high quality rendering, identifying a great site, navigating the planning and building department, or renovating your corporate offices.




I will not hand you off to a junior partner or intern after our first couple of meetings. I limit the number of clients I work with at any one time so you always know you will work with me exclusively. 

I don't believe in jumping right into the design phase. Instead, I focus on understanding all of the project parameters including the clients needs and wants. That is why I use my Needs and Options Review service. Get this right first, and then the rest of the project flows from there.

I give away my Residential Project Planning Pack. I aim to make it informative so you can make better decisions.

I know you have a lot of choices in who you work with, so I know I have to earn your trust. If you're curious, here is a little bit about me.

I am a registered architect. I am a proud graduate of De La Salle Collegiate and I hold two degrees from the University of Michigan. I am the happily married father of four great kids. I am an avid Detroit and Michigan sports fan and most weekends can be found at my children's travel basketball, volleyball, or soccer games. I love music and you will normally catch me listening to Sirius XMU, Alt Nation, or The Spectrum. I also happen to be left handed, so there's that.

I started Roger J. Berent Architects in 2007. Over 10 years later, I am still cranking away and enjoying every minute of it. 

Along the way, I was also able, in conjunction with Kyle Hulewat, to develop and receive two utility patents for a no-tool, friction fit furniture system we call Ecolok. You can see example of it under the furniture tab above.

I don't get caught up in the pretentious architecture stuff. I pride myself on being flexible and avialable. I love utilizing technology and keeping things streamlined and simple for everyone involved. I work tirelessly to meet your goals. 


We hired Roger to capture our vison for our dream home and couldn’t be happier with the results. Roger was a true professional during the entire project from his initial concepts through the build of the home. He didn’t just hand over design drawings and disappear, he stayed with the project through it’s entirety which makes it a much smoother process. We appreciate the job he did and would definitely use him again if we ever build again.

Roger is not only a very creative and talented architect; he is also personable and attentive when discussing projects and ideas. Within five minutes of a consultation with Roger, he gets an interesting grin. At that point, you know he “sees it”. His designs are cutting edge, sustainable, and affordable; he often achieves this difficult balance by using the project’s superstructure as the focal architectural element. Roger makes the space worthy of lengthy conversations.

Thanks to Roger’s vision, we have achieved the contemporary look and feel we desired for our vacation home. We originally hired an architect to pull together our ideas and still be within the lot size limitations. They engineered the drawings, and unfortunately, left us with an empty shell and no ideas or options for the interior layout of the house.

Once we found Roger, the process was exciting and fun. He was timely, accessible, and put us at ease immediately. He listened to our rough thoughts and came back with ideas with the enthusiasm as if he were building his own home. We would not hesitate to call Roger again with any questions or future projects we have in mind.

We hired Roger to plan the redesign of an existing 5,000 square foot facility for a corporate headquarters building. He listened to our parameters, goals and needs and translated those into a facility perfectly suited to our purposes. He was especially innovative in the design of a conference room, the interior lighting and storage areas. In fact, his original drawings were almost exactly the same as the finished product. He also facilitated general contractor visits and stuck with the project right through completion.

We highly recommend Roger for his professionalism and skills and the ease of working with him.
— Steve H. - Bloomfield Township
Our experience with Roger was and still is great as we continue to work with him. After interviewing several firms we went to Roger for the simple reason that he got it. He understood our style, ideas and created an incredible, unique design for our home.
We have recommended Roger several times to family, friends and business associates and all have had great results.
— Theresa and Mark F. - Rochester Hills
I thought Roger was very helpful and professional. He advised both myself and the builder throughout the project. He really puts thought into the clients personal message in each design assignment. I enjoyed working with Roger to complete my loft project . Due to his efforts the end result was amazing and I have received hundreds of compliments on his work!
