North Minneapolis, MN
Station 19 partnered with Sanctuary Covenant Church in North Minneapolis to identify a building site and design a worship center that would both reflect and refresh the local community. Located in the heart of North Minneapolis, the church wanted its new building to honor local landscape and culture while shining as a center for hope and life for the surrounding community.
For their location, Station 19 and Sanctuary Church selected an underutilized site with condemned & empty buildings. One of the buildings on the lot was salvaged — a heavy block warehouse building — to become the spacious, bright lobby for their new worship center. It references the area’s industrial roots with exposed ceilings and beams.
The new church building serves as a transition between a residential neighborhood & West Broadway’s commercial corridor and captures Sanctuary Covenant’s heart for North Minneapolis.
