At the age of sixteen, Gabriel Keller lived abroad in Antwerp, Belgium, where he immersed himself in European culture, food, and football. After graduating with highest honors, Gabe headed east to Cornell University, one of the oldest architecture schools in the country. After spending three years in Ithaca and studying classical architecture and design in Rome, he was lured by the siren song of Soho. Gabriel spent three memorable years in New York designing an array of extraordinary restaurants, hotels, nightclubs and other environments for Serge Becker, the Paris-born, Swiss-Vietnamese impresario and designer of Bowery Bar, Area, M.K. and other haute hot spots. They also collaborated on sleek New York lofts and breathtaking Hamptons beach houses.
Recognizing his true passion for residential design, Gabriel returned home to Minneapolis. At Domain Architecture & Design, he found a kindred spirit in colleague Lars Peterssen, and the duo designed award-winning traditional and contemporary homes, lofts, and cabins for clients in the Twin Cities and around the country. Driven by a desire to refine his own architectural style, Gabriel cofounded Peterssen/Keller Architecture in 2009. His scope is national -- with homes under design in New York to California -- and his work has been extensively featured in numerous national and international publications.
Today, Gabriel's life has come full circle -- just the way he designed it. With a solid footing in the local community and a thriving family, Gabriel sees Peterssen/Keller's location in Minneapolis as the perfect platform for their developing portfolio of bespoke homes located around the country.
