Of lake living, of evenings spent by the fire, of holidays around the table, of growing families, of downsizing, of a grand home or a simple cabin.

Whatever your wishes, you’ve probably spent years planning, saving and researching. At Charlie & Co. Design, we’re devoted to helping you manifest your dream.

We are a Minneapolis-based, residential design studio focused on creating thoughtful and unique architecture. We design homes devoted to a modern lifestyle while being mindful of history and tradition.

Our passion for architecture, eagerness to listen, and attention to detail are evident in our designs, as well as the way in which we interact with our clients. Whether you imagine a kitchen remodel, a new home, or a large country estate, we bring the same passion for design to every project to help create a unique solution for your home and help you realize your dreams.

Having the home you’ve always wanted begins with talented listeners, passionate designers and a team who takes the time to oversee expectations, budget and outcomes throughout the entire design and construction process. At Charlie & Co. Design, we are grateful for the opportunity to translate your fondest hopes into reality.

About Charlie & Co. Design - it starts with a dream

“Your home is more than just your biggest investment. It’s where your family lives and gathers and celebrates. It’s personal. It’s emotional.”

—Charlie & Co Client


Good design is the synthesis of many different ideas into a thoughtful whole. It’s an iterative process, which leads to a product. It’s not a known product from the beginning and it requires a team of dedicated design professionals who can handle every facet of the planning.

Your experience with Charlie & Co includes an ordered system of steps that are proven to ensure excellent communication and accountability.  From initial information gathering and budget development, to helping select the best partners in your build process and project close out; we are your stalwart partners in ensuring you’ll have a thoughtfully designed home and the shared experience of designing it.

Where we work informs our design brief as much as any other factor. We are adamant about complimenting the surrounding aesthetics, whether that is dictated by nature or neighborhood. We always strive to elevate the setting.

These days technologies support remote access to distant projects. Virtual technologies allow for site visits, selection meetings, resource research, and group discussions that enable our firm to work as a integral part of project development and fruition with minimal “in person” time.
