North Regional Library
Located at the crossroads of the Folwell, McKinley, Jordan, and Hawthorne Neighborhoods in Minneapolis, this library plays an expanded role as an active, urban community center. The renovation maximizes the potential of several outdoor spaces; design that was inspired by community input. Included in the project is a multi-age Reading Garden, a peaceful space to encourage outdoor use and collaborative work. The Children’s Garden invites play and encourages balance through a STEM-inspired installation of physical challenges on engraved granite steppers. We collaborated with local artists from Juxtaposition Arts to provide site-specific paving and fence patterns that align with the library’s interior graphics.
