Krause Gateway Center

Des Moines, IA

Kum & Go


Designed by renowned architect Renzo Piano, the Krause Gateway Center brings a unique perspective to Des Moines’ western gateway. The construction of the corporate headquarters of Kum & Go was an involved undertaking with a complex landscape design to match.

In addition to a green rooftop that overlooks the acclaimed John and Mary Pappajohn Sculpture Park, the site includes hundreds of trees and other plants that transform the busy intersection into an urban oasis. The slope of the building and position of the landscape’s features  gives the illusion of a forest springing up between buildings in the heart of the city.
