The Scott Petinga Group Offices โ€“ Minneapolis

The Scott Petinga Group Offices โ€“ Minneapolis

Shea has designed the new offices of Theย Scott Petinga Group located in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

After being diagnosed with cancer over a decade ago, entrepreneur Scott Petinga set out to build an empire, creating a handful of small companies specializing in everything from communications to real-estate development. The empire quickly exploded, necessitating a new office space and location centered around Akquracy, a data-fueled communications agency. Petinga tapped Shea to design the third floor of a historic warehouse building in the North Loop neighborhood of Minneapolis, merging the spaceโ€™s storied past with his companyโ€™s modern sensibilities.

An opposite-of-ordinary environment to inspire creativity and foster strategic communication was the goal, with a space that felt more like a boutique hotel lobby than a typical office space. The project was an exercise in dichotomy throughout its duration. Shea created a design that highlighted the original character features of the building and really brought together opposing forces. It mixed pieces owned by Petinga with new furnishings and brought in high-tech digital equipment against a backdrop of reclaimed-wood floor and timbered columns. The space also needed to serve dual functions: a space where Petingaโ€™s companies could interact while maintaining their own identities and team spaces.

The Shea-crafted solution was a central common area with a fully-equipped kitchen and several soft-seating nooks for breakout meetings, with adjacent rooms for individual workstations salvaged from Petingaโ€™s old space. Quirky egg-shaped chairs and an igloo-inspired seating area give inventive and unexpected places for brainstorming, and exposed beams and restored arched windows maintain the buildingโ€™s original character. The clean palette is punched up by bright details: graphic murals featuring Superman, astronauts, and the city of Minneapolis accent the walls, while skateboard tiles backspash the restrooms. Itโ€™s an ideal setting to let creativity flourish.
