Fame, an experiential retail marketing agency, retained NELSON to assist in the design of its 5,400 SF floorplate in a historic building in downtown Minneapolis. In a collaborative effort, the NELSON Team worked directly with Fame executives on a classic aesthetic that not only captured the client’s end goals but also stayed within budget guidelines. For this reason, various elements of the project were a result of the owner’s personal preferences mixed with budget friendly options.
Housing roughly 25 employees, the space consists of a reception area, two conference rooms, an open office work area where everyone, including the owner, sit together, and a bar/entertaining area. Each area was designed for one specific purpose rather than for multiuse. Intricate details mixed with existing elements, such as Terrazzo flooring, add character while complimenting the building’s history. The square footage helped create a sense of intimacy throughout.
