In 2020, Workshop/APD is strengthening our long-standing commitment to Minneapolis and the Great Lakes region with the expansion of our St. Louis Park office. Since it was established in 2015, the Minneapolis office has supported a wide range of Workshop/APD projects in collaboration with our team in New York City, and is now uniquely equipped to manage all aspects of Workshop/APD residential, development and hospitality work throughout North America.
Under the guidance of Associate and Senior Project Manager Zachary Helmers – a 15-year Workshop/APD veteran – the expanded multidisciplinary office brings our firm’s collaborative, vertically integrated approach to Minneapolis, with the ability to create and execute modern luxury design and architecture of every type and scale. From remarkable ground-up residences and residential developments to groundbreaking restaurants and hotels, the team is poised to deliver exceptional, industry-leading services across the architecture, planning, design and custom product fields. Workshop/APD Minneapolis also works hand-in-hand with the architects, interior designers and product experts based in our New York City headquarters.
For five years, the office has been instrumental to the strategic and exponential growth of Workshop/APD across North America, serving as a crucial client interface for work in the Midwest and on the West Coast. According to founding principal Andrew Kotchen, Zachary and his team have the local perspective and global insight needed to bring Workshop/APD’s site-specific, contemporary approach to the area.”
We look forward to further expanding our local project portfolio and are excited by the tremendous potential that exists within the Twin Cities and the Great Lakes region.
