Scott Hierlinger

Design Director, Managing Principal
Scott Hierlinger

Scott is involved in multiple projects simultaneously and his involvement is no surprise as he has practiced interior design since he was a small child. His years of design have made this Design Director an expert in his field. He brings three major points to his client’s attention at the start of each project: Budget, High Level Goals and What in the end do you want your space to say about your company?  The marketplace trend Scott is most excited about is the joining of hospitality elements with commercial and workplace design which he finds to be a natural direction for the industry making workspaces experienced daily more enjoyable. He exercises this notion by bringing Buddy to work, his White Westie, trusted companion, and Minneapolis mascot.

Scott was inducted to the International Board of Directors as the President for the 2015-2016 year in June 2015.
