Text description provided by the architects. One of the largest global coatings manufacturers with nearly 10,000 employees worldwide, Valspar Corporation has its roots in Minnesota Paints, a small company started in the 1800s. Valspar outgrew its former factory buildings—with their block-long mural that acts as a local landmark—and decided to move further into downtown Minneapolis to two floors of the Ameriprise Building.

Reinvigorated by its new 131,000 square-foot headquarters, the 200-year-old company moved from a maze of small, dark offices to an open environment that takes advantage of natural light. The design references the mural from their old headquarters and showcases the power of color tempered by a neutral material palette.
