The Twin Cities

The Twin Cities are comprised of Minneapolis and St. Paul, environmentally-friendly sister-cities that are situated in the good state of Minnesota. While both of their urban environments are constantly evolving, the more scenic and natural aspects of the metro area remain unscathed. Boasting over 10,000 lakes, the area has a number of outdoor hotspots located in neighboring Wisconsin and South Dakota. And while the Midwest may not be a very common place to vacation, it is close to our hearts for many reasons. Follow along as we spotlight the natural and urban balance that makes up The Twin Cities.

Introducing THE COMN. This space was started by several creative entrepreneurs and currently hosts six main tenants, spanning from design to photography to fashion. It's a beautiful environment that is very inpiring and fosters important energy for this particular sector of Minneapolis. We're very thankful to friends Melissa Oholendt and Kate Arends for hosting us. Seen here is the main area that contains the Hackwith Design House.

The space is a combination of open layout and contained space, making it versatile for various uses. This meeting room was built custom and helps divide for quiet meetings.
