Leaders in Innovative Grocery
and Retail Store Design

Cushing Terrell’s multi-disciplinary team in Minneapolis, MN, specializes in the design of grocery and retail stores that are specialized, branded, and sustainable. Great stores deliver local flavor, multi-sensory experiences, and authenticity — and we help bring these to the forefront.

Our team partners closely with grocery purveyors — Albertsons, ACME Markets, H-E-B, Southeastern Grocers, Hy-Vee, and Whole Foods Market to name a few — to create sustainable yet cost-effective designs that consider the latest in refrigeration technology, customer flow, lighting, kitchen organization, customer seating, grab-and-go options, interactive cooking demonstrations, curbside pick-up, and more.

We have a design methodology with a track record of the most important kind: delighted customers and ecstatic store management. Our retail client roster spans giants like Walmart, Costco, Amazon, and Minneapolis’ own, Target; but also grocers (see above), restaurants, tire centers, wine shops, breweries, and even boutique stores in national parks.

The collaborative retail designs we create are underscored by seamless interconnectivity of online and brick-and-mortar shopping, cutting-edge in-store technology, and a delicate balance between authentic local flair and corporate branding. We regularly contribute to the revision of clients’ branding and design guidelines, creating programmatic elements carried into all future locations.

Thank you for tapping into all your past Hy-Vee knowledge and asking questions along the way for new areas. We really appreciate the upfront coordination. Great work!

Designing a Home That’s 100% You

No cookie-cutter home designs here. Our Minneapolis residential design team creates an experience that is creative and personal, yet expressive and interactive. It’s our mission to inspire and make real our clients’ dreams while grounding them in reality with designs that are high-performing, long-lasting, and beautiful.

Our favorite homes reflect an owner’s personality, blend in with and harness the natural elements around them, and are built with the future — of both the planet and cost of maintenance – in mind. Every custom home design begins and ends with detailed conversation.

We aim to make the collaborative design of your future home an absolute joy. And we’d love to talk to you about what you have in mind.

We Love the Twin Cities!

Located in the historic Barrel House building overlooking the Mississippi River, we are home to a fun-loving group of architects, design professionals, electrical engineers, mechanical engineers, and marketing professionals. We are a tight-knit group who enjoy all things food-related, sharing silly GIFs to capture our mood, and charretting our way to warmth during the cold Minnesota winters.

While we are a hardworking bunch, we still find time to gather for office potlucks, happy hours, and lunchtime outings. You’ll find us engaged in our community through organizations such as Urban Land Institute, Minneapolis Downtown Council, and local chambers and real estate associations. Please stop in and say hello; hospitality is in our DNA and we would love to get to know you!
