United Health Group

LOCATION : Minnetonka, MN
ARCHITECT: RSP Architects
COMPLETED : 2012

The landscape for United Health Group’s new office tower on their Corporate Campus had to be integrated within an existing contemporary landscape and the rolling landscape of the North building’s lake and trails. The placement of the building and parking facilities created a series of semi-enclosed civic spaces. The south courtyard consists of large plaza with outdoor seating, a linear water feature and open grass areas, taking full advantage of the southern exposure. The plaza, located over an underground parking structure, leads into a winding walkway with circular mounds and limestone seating blocks. The east courtyard is a private outdoor room for breakout meetings and small gatherings. The dining courtyard is a garden room between cafeterias, providing seating and shade amidst a bosque of birch trees. The resulting sequence of landscapes provides engaging and varied spaces on the ground level and compelling views from the corporate offices above.
