Cornerstone Design Inc was founded in 1989 to provide a full range of architectural services to commercial and industrial clients. Projects have included both new construction and renovations, and the firm's experience also includes residential and institutional work.

Since 1972, the founder, Richard L. Henes AIA, has been employed with some of Ann Arbor's leading architectural and engineering firms, as well as the City of Ann Arbor Planning Department and O'Neal Construction, Inc. He started Cornerstone in response to a perceived need for a “construction- smart” architect.

United Bank & Trust opened its new Dexter, MI branch in 2001. CDI provided full services from shepherding the project through the approvals process, to building and site design, and through construction

In 1995, Cornerstone added an additional principal, David Esau AIA, who has unique expertise in accessible and universal design, and who has worked with one of the country’s top designers.

In these days, when architectural practice is so much more than design and drafting, this range of experience and resources allows Cornerstone Design to provide its clients with unmatched abilities to:

  • Obtain required government approvals;
  • Design to your budget;
  • Provide for the safety and comfort of your employees and customers, through our extensive knowledge of applicable codes and regulations;
  • Work efficiently with engineers and contractors to make the best use of your site, and to provide cost-effective solutions for electrical and mechanical needs;
  • Prepare bid documents with the information contractors really need; and
  • Work with contractors to keep construction changes (and subsequent cost increases) to a minimum.

All of this technical expertise is combined with the ability to provide quality design, at the level appropriate for your project. We are always aware of your goals for the project, and work hard to achieve them at the lowest possible overall cost. That is why we say we provide Creative, Responsive Architectural Services.

The effectiveness of Cornerstone's approach can be seen from our high proportion of repeat clients. They come back because Cornerstone Design provides them with fast personal service and quality design, at a reasonable price. They know we'll give every project, large or small, the kind of attention it deserves--the kind of attention you deserve.
