DLA Piper Minneapolis

Minneapolis, Minnesota

West Coast–based, international law firm DLA Piper commissioned Gensler to design and facilitate a fast-tracked relocation of the firm’s Minneapolis practice to the signature IDS Center. The design embraces the building’s large structural sheer walls that were detailed carefully and wrapped in sophisticated wood panels to help connect the exterior and interior spaces and highlight the buildings architectural framework. Circulation areas possess a gallery-like feel and exhibit the firm’s extensive art collection, while materials such as marble, wood and decorative carpets help exude luxury and warmth throughout the space.
