Firm DescriptionUrbanWorks Architecture is an award-winning design firm in downtown Minneapolis that specializes in complex, urban infill projects. Established in 2005, the practice has grown to include diverse building types – mixed-use development, low-income housing, office headquarters, asset repositioning, educational facilities, historic rehabilitation, and more.
Every place has a story, and we see our job as translating that story into the built environment. Complete consideration of a project’s context – physical, social, political, financial, cultural, historical, and market forces – helps to shape design and turn constraints into opportunities.
Our unique perspective has inspired innovation across typologies, resulting in new building models that demonstrate both program and economic success. It is our firm belief that we can make the world a better place through architecture – to Design for Impact.
