JLG ACQUIRES STUDIO FIVE ARCHITECTS


JLG Architects, a Top 25 Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Journal’s Architecture Firm and the number one architecture firm on the Inc. 5000 list, has acquired the assets of Studio Five Architects, one of the oldest woman-owned architecture firms in Minnesota. “It is JLG’s mix of innovative design excellence, their deep commitment to doing what’s right while staying on budget, and an unbeatable firm culture that makes this acquisition so ideal and ensures that we will continue to elevate our services for decades to come,” said Linda McCracken-Hunt, FAIA, former President of Studio Five Architects and now a Principal Architect at JLG. Founded in 1987 and based in Minneapolis, Studio Five Architects has worked on such high profile projects as the University of Minnesota Health Clinics and Surgery Center and the expansion to Regions Hospital. Studio Five Architects (SFA) was led by Linda McCracken-Hunt, FAIA, who came to the firm after working for over a decade as the University Architect at the University of Minnesota and was the catalyst for expanding SFA’s services to include owner’s representation. Linda has served as the President of the American Institute of Architects Minnesota Chapter, the AIA National Board of Directors, and the University of Minnesota College of Architecture and Landscape Architecture National Advisory Board. Linda and the other SFA staff will join JLG’s staff.
