Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Shelter Architecture is a 2019 award winner for architects in Minnesota
For a holistic and environmentally sensitive design firm to meet your architecture needs, we recommend using Shelter Architecture!
Shelter Architecture has received dozens of reviews on four verified sites with an average rating of 4.77 stars, earning them an incredible Rating Score™ of 95.74 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for ranking among the top 10 architects in all of Minnesota!
Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:
“We have done several projects with Shelter, and have had them do designs for us for future projects, too. They built us a beautiful carriage house, a Hollywood-level dressing room, an office built for two, and updates in our bedroom, to name a few. They are wonderful! We are toying with having them build us a cabin! They are professional and warm, great listeners, and always find ways to surprise and delight their customers. Our projects with them have won awards, and our carriage house, which is a replica of the original Victorian one, accidentally passed the city historical reviewers as the original structure! So, don’t hesitate, they can do anything, and [they] love a good challenge! -Gretchen T.
Not Your Average Architects
We wanted to learn a little more about this award-winning business and its impressive online reputation, so we took a few minutes to talk with Kurt Gough, the marketing manager at Shelter Architecture.
The first question we had for Kurt was what sets Shelter Architecture apart from their competition in Minnesota. Here’s his response:
“We work both in commercial and residential. On the residential side it’s a personality fit more often than not. There are a lot of good advisors in town, of which most are friends of ours. We were founded as a sustainable design company with residential work. On the commercial side we’re unique in that we have [anything from] full service brand support to interior design to full ground up building. We have a full experience on how that brand works with their building.”
We also wanted to know what their mission is at Shelter Architecture and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s what Kurt had to say:
“We create accessible and enjoyable design experiences that help people live and work better!”
Building Success Through Asking
When asked about the Shelter Architecture’s secret to a strong online reputation, Kurt said:
“We just ask! We send an email and ask in person.”
Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Shelter Architecture has gotten their name out there through regional print ads for residential work and art programs, networking, and face-to-face meetings.
There are so many business owners who would love to build the kind of online reputation that Shelter Architecture has. Here’s Kurt’s expert advice for them:
“A strong sense of self awareness about what makes you unique is key. You also need to know what markets you want to tailor your efforts to.”
Congratulations to the team at Shelter Architecture for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Kurt, for taking the time to speak with us! Visit their website here!
