Blethen, Gage, and Krause

Mankato, MN | Commercial

Overview

The forward-thinking Blethen, Gage, and Krause was open to ideas and willing to share its vision for a new law office space to satisfy the functional needs of the firm while also reflecting their corporate brand.


Opportunity

During the design process, Blethen, Gage, and Krause was going through an internal rebranding, and it was a priority to reflect this in the interior design of the spaces while maintaining the more emblematic law firm aesthetic. One design requirement was to ensure client privacy during daily attorney work.

Solution

In keeping with the traditional character of law firms, ISG implemented dark woods on the floors, custom bookshelves, trims and ceilings. Whites and warm grays were used to brighten areas and to offset the dark woods while bringing a more modern, updated feel to the space. Color accents were used to reflect the new brand and add interest to the space. Privacy was accomplished by separation of public space from attorney space. The need for client privacy also drove the design in the lobby area and conference rooms through the use of acoustical wall panels, and extending walls to the deck and carpeting rooms to mitigate sound transfer.
