McMonigal Architects partners with NorthEast Investment Cooperative

March 13th, 2017

by Phil Hofstad, Associate AIA

You’ve all heard of food co-ops, but what about buying into a whole neighborhood?  That’s exactly what the NorthEast Investment Cooperative (NEIC) in Minneapolis is doing.  By donating a portion of its services, McMonigal Architects partners with NEIC on proposed renovations to commercial properties.  We work with NEIC and potential tenants to develop economical solutions that aim to sustainably reuse and bring new life to tired and vacated old buildings.  Extensive field measuring and investigation, detailed code analysis, and creative design solutions for the building facades are part of the process.

Freedom Farm Schoolhouse – Thank You Celebration

August 5th, 2016

by Kyle Thrapp, Assoc. AIA

After we were able to attend the celebration event on Sunday and tour the building, McMonigal Architects is excited to share that construction at the Freedom Farm Schoolhouse is nearly complete!  Located in Waverly Minnesota, Freedom Farm is a therapeutic horse riding center for those “whose lives, minds, and bodies are not as free.”  Adjacent to the Farm sits the Lake Ida Schoolhouse, a one room schoolhouse used for teaching children from 1860 through 1972.  McMonigal Architects donated its design services to renovate and expand the schoolhouse to provide space for classroom, conference, and counseling programs.  The addition is compatible with the schoolhouse, and the small link connection minimized alterations to the original historic brick structure.
