meet the creators of scout workshop

Heather and Kim started working together practicing architecture and design in 2007, first at 20 Below Studio, then as part of a larger firm in 2013 (when 20 Below was acquired), and on their own again with Yellow Dog Studio since 2015. Today Yellow Dog Studio is a successful architecture and design firm with a robust body of work (in the Twin Cities & nationally).


The idea for Scout Workshop was hatched in tandem with Yellow Dog Studio in 2015. Heather and Kim wanted to figure out how to remain a small, agile design firm while connecting to a broader community of other creative folks forging their own paths. When they couldn't find that combination anywhere, they decided to create it.

Heather is a self-professed misfit and MN transplant, with original roots in IN.


Kim is arguably more of the hippie, spending years in CA and CO before moving back to her home state of MN.
