Designing the Built Environment: Kahler Slater
(posted: Mar 01, 2011)
Kahler Slater is a firm of integrated creative problem solvers. The firm works with clients who want better experiences and environments for themselves and the people they serve. Begun as an architecture firm 102 years ago with the design of a single dress shop on National Avenue, the firm’s local presence grew over the decades as its work began to shape the Milwaukee skyline. This included notable buildings such as the Allen Bradley (now Rockwell Automation) campus and clock tower and the Milwaukee Art Museum and its Calatrava addition, for which the firm served as architect of record.
Today, Kahler Slater has offices in Milwaukee, Madison, and Singapore, and works nationally and internationally delivering “experience design,” which is the integrated delivery of design. It encompasses all realms of the human experience, including the place in which an experience occurs. The long-term success and reputation of Kahler Slater is a reflection of this integrated approach.
Kahler Slater recently received national Best Place to Work honors from the Great Place to Work® Institute and the Society for Human Resource Management for the seventh straight year, one of only two firms to be recognized every year since the award’s inception.
