HMN Architects Philosophy

For 30+ years, HMN Architects has provided our clients with quality, practical architectural designs in the healthcare, justice, and education markets, and we are passionate about what we do. We work with every client to create the most functional design to meet their needs. Our goal is always to develop the right solution to help achieve their unique goals.

Our team at HMN Architects helps guide our clients through the design process to create a plan that works. Through each stage of the project, from architectural site planning to interior design, we help our clients reach their goals while sustaining their values and better positioning them for future growth.

Partnerships for Success

Whether a project calls for a completely new architectural design or a functional redesign of an existing facility, our work is always unique. Instead of offering prepackaged designs, HMN Architects partners with key stakeholders to fully understand our clients specific needs and to provide customized design solutions. This allows for a design that reflects each client’s exclusive sensibilities, while exceeding their goals.

Healthcare Architecture

HMN has been providing healthcare architectural services since 1989. With an eye on the future, our designers and planners understand these high-performing spaces should be functional, flexible and enduring. We pay close attention to not just the aesthetics of our designs, but how they are utilized. Our designs draw on lessons learned from working with exceptional healthcare organizations and an understanding of current research and evidence-based design, allowing us to create spaces that are both inviting and technically advanced.

Justice Architecture

HMN Architects has a long track record of providing justice architectural design services, and that means experience you can rely on. Together, our justice team has over 37 years of justice knowledge combined. We have designed more than 22 justice facilities, and have a very clear understanding of the unique challenges these projects present. A cost-effective approach is just as much of a necessity as managing county budgets, handling low staffing requirements, and ensuring protection from design-related liabilities. Conserving all your resources, whether financial, human or environmental, is a hallmark of our practice.

Higher Education Architecture

At HMN, we know that the right design can completely transform a school’s capabilities. From large universities to the smallest elementary schools, our team is experienced in creating learning environments that motivate and encourage creativity in students today and are flexible enough to meet the needs for tomorrow.
