Good Design Works

DORSKY + YUE INTERNATIONAL (DYI) is a full service architectural practice in planning and design of mixed-use commercial, retail, residential and hospitality development.  The firm renders design services to owners and developers in translating visions into community and economic assets.  We strive to exceed expectations of our clients and deliver products that meet established objectives in blending success with community enrichment by creating functional, memorable places.

DYI is an international planning, architectural and interior design firm with a service oriented culture and a reputation built on its ability to add value in cost-conscious innovative designs, produce quality documents and deliver responsive service to its clients throughout all phases of real estate development.

Five decades at the forefront of planning and design

Founded in Cleveland, Ohio in 1959 and opened its South Florida office in 1970, DYI grew by diversifying in project type, clientele, geography and staff talents.  Today, Dorsky + Yue International serves its domestic and international clients seamlessly from the two offices.

The root of the firm in residential design started in HUD projects driven by functional and economic construction approaches.  Its portfolio has since diversified into various domestic and international markets in community master planning, single family homes, townhouses, rental apartments, condominiums, senior living and hospitality projects in both suburban low-rise communities and dense high-rise urban environment.

The firm’s practice in commercial and mixed-use developments also encompass a full spectrum of products that includes neighborhood shopping centers, big box retail, lifestyle centers, suburban outlets and multilevel urban malls.  Our LEED-accredited professionals continue to be innovative leaders in emerging trends and technologies with a commitment to environmental sensitivity and sustainable design,

Our clients are represented by community and industry leaders in real estate development, discriminating clients who demand excellence.  They seek vision, expertise and commitment in quality of design.  They expect innovation, fresh thinking, and a business understanding of their markets. We excel in translating their visions into meaningful and innovative solutions — designs that work!
