From designing the state’s first open schools to its renowned museums to the most innovative healthcare facilities, HGA’s impact on the lives of people in Minnesota since our founding has been, and continues to be, palpable. What first started in the basement of co-founder Curt Green’s home has grown to become an over 300-person HGA headquarters with all architectural and engineering disciplines, as well as a host of unique specialists.
A Top Workplace
Our design reputation, social culture, workplace perks, and endless opportunities to make a positive community impact, all added up to us being named as a 'Top Workplace' by Star Tribune and Minnesota's leading architecture firm. Learn more about this honor.
A Historic Home
Located in the warehouse district of Minneapolis, the North Loop, and across from Target Field, our home at the Ford Center is a historic warehouse that once operated as a Ford Model T assembly plant. The design team converted the original 1st-floor showroom into a gallery with conference rooms, commons area, espresso bar, and lunch lounge. A former industrial elevator shaft now features a central stairway that connects the office floors, where open work stations and “co-lab” teaming stations encourage cross-disciplinary collaboration.
Our efforts in the community include providing design services with our annual Community Workshop for nonprofits and other low- and pro-bono design projects, as well as participating in a holiday Adopt-a-Family program and Hearts and Hammers. We also support national charitable campaigns with our colleagues across the country like United Giving and Wear Pink and Red days, and the Movember challenge, all for health research.
