A GIANT New Space

Posted by Pascha Apter on Jun 7, 2017 10:29:25 AM

May marked a GIANT milestone for Giant Voices.

Since the day I launched Giant Voices, I’ve dreamed about moving my team into an expansive new space. Don’t get me wrong, our Canal Park space was charming and historical, but also full of challenges. Our team has grown extensively in the past year, and Lisa and I knew our current space was not going to work for much longer.


We began the process to remodel the Canal Park space but quickly realized that would only be a temporary fix. We were bursting at the seams! We had designers sharing desk space. We had a single conference room to offer clients. There was no space to expand. No room to grow. Even a beautiful, reworked space wouldn’t do the trick.

It was incredibly important to us to stay in the heart of Duluth. Our local roots are strong and we wanted to remain centrally located. We considered multiple local spaces but fell in love with the former Ace Hardware space on Superior Street.


A Space to Grow

Lisa and I are so proud that our vision has come to life. In many ways, it’s even better than we expected - and if you know how ambitious we are, that’s really saying something. We could not have done this without the expertise of Wagner Zaun Architecture, McGough Construction and many sub-contractors. Their work transformed the 6,600-square-foot space into a beautiful, modern - and dare I say sexy - collaborative workspace.

We already love being downtown Duluth. We love being a part of our city’s thriving business district and joining so many fantastic local businesses. It’s a different kind of busy and we’re fitting right in. We’ll miss the proximity to Lake Superior, the Lakewalk and our friends and neighbors in Canal Park, but downtown suits us just fine.

Here are some of my favorite elements of our new office:

  • Multiple Conference Rooms
    We are so excited to host client meetings in our new conference rooms. We can feel the ideas, creativity and strategy bubbling already.

  • Collaborative Meeting Spaces
    Sometimes, casual meeting spaces are necessary to think differently about a project.

  • Beautiful, Handmade Wooden Tables by Lars Woodwerks
    We can’t thank Lars enough for his exquisite, handcrafted works of art. They’re beautiful, functional showpieces that make our space truly unique.

  • Fitness Center
    Productivity starts with taking care of yourself - and some of the best ideas pop up during a workout. Our new fitness center will allow our Giants convenient access to solve problems while building strength.

  • Modern Workspaces for Our Giants
    Is there anything better than starting fresh? Our Giants are adding their creative touches to make the spaces their own.

  • A Fabulous Mural by Local Artist Brian Olson 
    I’d be remiss if I neglected to share this stunning mural by Brian Olson. Bright colors, Duluth’s beautiful skyline, and our powerful core values. I can see it from my office, and it inspires me every day.
