MNTC Rochester - Women

MNTC Rochester - Women

Rochester, MN

Size: 31,000 sf
Cost: $6,000,000
Completed: November 2017 


Station 19 partnered with Minnesota Teen Challenge-Rochester to design a women’s dormitory and community space that would meet their expanding facility needs while providing the security and resources that their residents and staff rely upon. For their site, they selected 3 acres of land that was purchased from the grounds of the neighboring Sisters of St Francis-Assisi.

The design of this new building reflects the values of MNTC, promoting wholeness, health, and recovery for women seeking freedom from chemical dependency. Constructed in a location that would make the most of the surrounding grounds, the building was a new 31,000 sq. ft. one-story, wood-framed, 74-bed facility with 3,800 sq. ft. partial basements and mezzanines for storm shelters, storage and mechanical. A 100-seat chapel, dining room with a catered kitchen, fitness and art rooms, and administrative and counseling staff offices were all included in the plan and are built strategically into the design of the structure. Residential wings include shared lounges, classrooms, laundry facilities, prayer rooms, medication dispensing rooms, and supervising staff offices. The project also included the design of over 1/3 of a mile of landscaped walking paths, several patios, a lawn area for structured and informal use, and a play area for visiting children.
