About DSGW

DSGW is a values driven architecture and interior design firm.

We know a skilled project manager can make a living just about anywhere. At DSGW, located in historic downtown Duluth, you can take your skills and also make a life. On the shores of Lake Superior, our city of 86,000 is big enough to support a thriving arts and music scene, but small enough to be about ten minutes from your next stop. Where are you going? That depends on what’s riding your roof rack or in your trunk: mountain bikes, skis, paddleboard, snowshoes, crampons, trail running shoes, guitar or drum kit, book of poetry — those all work here.
