Office Remodel & Addition
KDV, a financial services and accounting firm, located in St. Cloud and the Twin Cities, turned to GLTArchitects for assistance in solving their space issues. The result is an addition that nearly doubles the size of the existing facility and a reorganization/remodel of the current space. The new configuration results in better circulation and incorporates a lease space that allows for future expansion. The goal, successfully accomplished, was to integrate the new construction with the existing and to present a refreshed physical image that was consistent with KDV’s corporate image.
A concern in the design was how to bring natural light to the central spaces of a relatively square 24,000 S.F. single-story building. The strategic placement of borrowed lights, workstations, and central skylights achieved the goal of a light, airy, and pleasant workspace.
