The goal of this project was to refresh the dated chapel on the Minnesota Masonic Homes campus. AP removed all finishes in the 1950’s building, as well as re-roofed and re-tuckpointed the entire structure. We updated the building’s mechanical and AV systems. As well as added a wheelchair lift so that the lower level can be accessed by all individuals. Finally, we added a new custom-made 10’ stained glass window, which is the visual centerpiece of the new worship space. This chapel honors old-world craftsmanship and is a building full of exquisite details.
One of the driving forces, and biggest challenges, was mitigating decades of water damage. AP began cleaning surfaces and removing layers of brick to assess structural components that would ensure the building would stand for another century.
The stained glass was added to the chapel as a breathtaking building component and was custom-made for this space.
