Our Story

As kids, Peter and Patton Doyle built worlds in their imagination. From cities to scenery, monorails to marble runs, their grandparents' basement was filled with miniature models made from bricks, blocks, and all manner of odds and ends.

No longer constrained to the top of a card table, the Doyle brothers have brought their imaginations to life. Aided by their mother (the puzzler), their father (the woodworker), and a remarkable group of creative and brilliant team members, the Doyle brothers offer you a chance to discover places beyond your imagination.

As we continue to refine our skills and strive to give you more impactful adventures, we invite you to step into our workshop and unlock the world of Team Decode.

10% to Charity

We donate 10% of profits each year to worthy causes in Southeast Michigan. Since we opened in 2016, we've donated over $10,000! This year we donated proceeds to the Pioneer Band Camp Scholarship. Both Patton and Peter are graduates of the Pioneer band program, and this new scholarship program will fund free band camp for several students each year!

In years past, we've been pleased to support Big Brothers Big Sisters of Washtenaw County, InsideOut Literary Arts, the Association of Businesses of Color, the Huron River Watershed Council, SafeHouse Center, and Corner Health.

We're also proud to donate complimentary tickets to raffles and fundraisers throughout the year. If you're seeking a donation for your event, send us an email at Team@DecodeDetroit.com.

Our buildings are more than 100% solar powered by panels on the roof! You can see their current output here and here.
