As a young child in third grade, Michael Brosche could be found drawing houses and landscapes with his multi-color ink pen. By ninth grade, he was in his father’s shop, building 1/4” scaled models of homes he designed, complete with lighting, sliding glass doors, and pools that held water.
After graduating from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, Michael partnered to open his first design company at the age of 26. In 1984, he went on to open MICHAEL BROSCHE ASSOCIATES, enjoying 25 years of success with his passion for design before closing the company in 2009 in order to enjoy his life in retirement.
During the 25 years of operation, the designs of MICHAEL BROSCHE ASSOCIATES were frequently showcased in national and regional magazines, gracing the cover many times, as well as receiving 11 prestigious Guilda Awards for design excellence. These projects were as diverse as the clients, as well as their locations, which were throughout the United States, the Caribbean, and as far away as Nigeria.
Although Michael designed many restaurants in Maine and Florida, his company was known for its custom residential designs. These residential projects ranged from simple lofts to residential compounds of over 30,000 square feet. One such compound is located on its own private island in the Turks and Caicos Islands. The diversity of Michael’s talent ranges from Transitional to Contemporary. These designs showcased clean crisp lines with refined elegance.
Michael’s attention to detail was his strong point in design, creating elements that stand out on their own, making a space exciting prior to installing furniture, art, and accessories. One of his trademarks was to install the final furnishings and art without the client present, allowing for that final surprise. Greeting his clients at their newly completed home with champagne, intimate lighting, and soft music, it was Michael’s greatest reward to see the tears of joy in his clients’ eyes.
Under “Portfolio” on this site, you will find a small sampling of Michael’s designs during his career.
Since retirement, Michael keeps busy with travel, painting, photography, and writing. He is currently editing his first two novels. His photography can be enjoyed on Facebook, while his art hangs on the walls of family and friends. His stainless steel sculptures are in private collections.
Michael, his husband, Ron, and their four dogs spend their time on the Caribbean island of Sint Maarten, as well as their properties on the coasts of Maine and Portugal.
