When ArmadaGlobal was looking for new office space to address the growth of our company we knew we wanted our new facility to reflect the personality and culture of our company as a dynamic, contemporary, market leading organization. A standard “run of the mill” office build-out simply would not work. We were looking for a space that would set us apart from our competitors and position us to recruit the absolutely best talent to staff our growing business. But we needed someone to help bring our vision to reality. We looked to Lena Munther at Munther Design to create a space that was beautifully unique, dynamic and reflective of our company culture and business and that could handle our rapid growth while remaining functional.. Plus we still had to work within a budget. Costs still mattered.
Munther Design listened attentively to our vision and needs and suggested a very creative and practical space design solution. They handled all our needs during the initial 12,000 sq ft build-out, including preparation of Architectural drawings, specifications, furniture & art selections and purchases and provided oversight of our entire construction project.
Munther Design also provided ArmadaGlobal with comprehensive relocation services needed to move our staff and equipment. Then when our business out grew our new space, we again turned to Munther Design two years after the initial build-out to design our additional 8,000 sq ft extension of our existing space.
Beyond design, Lena and her team even served as ArmadaGlobal’s representatives during the two separate build-outs, working closely with Merritt Construction Services to insure that every design phase was being implemented as we envisioned.
Our staff loves coming to work every day and our space contributed to ArmadaGlobal being voted “A Best Places to Work” winner in the mid-market companies’ category by Baltimore Business Journal in 2014 after being a finalist in 2012. Visitors to our office regularly comment on the unique and special atmosphere we have created at ArmadaGlobal. We directly credit Lena and her team for not only bringing our vision into reality but for giving us much more than we ever envisioned for our new corporate offices. This is a space that we will enjoy for a long time to come. I cannot recommend Lena and Munther Designs enough. She and her team are a joy to work with.

Winner of NAIOP Award 2008 MD – Best Interiors in a Mid-rise Building
"We have worked with Lena Munther-Anderson for the past 5 years and have found her dedication to the job, work ethic, creativity and overall professionalism to be far above anyone we have ever worked with in the design field. We worked hand in hand with Lena in the design for our 75,000 square foot building in Columbia, MD.
Lena's attention to detail and unique ideas gave us a very distinctive and character rich building for others to marvel.Lena's background and past experience in Europe gives her a decided advantage over typical interior designers. The style she recommended truly fit our company personality almost as if she were one of our long time employees. We recommend Lena for any interior design need and greatly look forward to working with her on our next project."

VETERINARY ORTHOPEDIC SPORTS MEDICINE GROUP
Honorable Award by Veterinary Economics –
Best Veterinary Facilities in the U.S., 2009
"We enthusiastically recommend Munther Design without any reservation or hesitation. We came to Munther Design because of her work with FX Studios in Hunt Valley, MD, as we were looking for help in doing three things:
Munther Design not only fulfilled all three of these goals but surpassed all of our expectations. The end result transformed an industrial shell into a space that boldly tells our story and which we are proud to show off whenever we can! The process, which is too often not considered in selecting a design team, was an absolute pleasure. Not only was the process professional and without surprises – it was fun."
Drs. Sherman & Debra Canapp, Owners, 2008, Annapolis Junction, MD
"It's not easy to have an idea in one's mind and then find an individual who can bring it to life. Lena is very gifted and has the uncanny ability to truly understand what your dream is and then bring it to reality - but only bigger and better than anticipated."
"She does it resourcefully and with your budget clearly in mind -which is perhaps the most important aspect one should consider with respect to design work. She has done absolutely sensational work for me and has helped us receive an immense number of compliments which have contributed to our company's incredible success. We couldn't be happier with Lena which is why we have used her multiple times."
