NEUMANN MONSON ARCHITECTS

NM Des Moines Studio

111 East Grand’s exposed glue-laminated wood structure and dowel-laminated-timber (DLT) deck shed natural warmth in our new studio in Des Moines. Following their lead, our 4,200-sf interior build-out takes a light touch. Blackened steel panels wrap a deep entry recess from the building’s lobby. A cluster of conference and meeting rooms anchor the studio’s core, with perforated metal on their outside faces contrasting polycarbonate and homosote interiors. Collaborative space opens to the north, street-facing windows. Walk by and say hello! On the south, our kitchen and break area receive ample daylight.
