Arvonne Fraser Library

Minneapolis, MN

AIA Merit Award & Finance and Commerce Top Projects Winner

Project Description

The Arvonne Fraser Library is a part of the Hennepin County Library System. Originally designed as a credit union by architect Ralph Rapson, it became an underutilized and nearly obsolete building due to building envelope issues. A new roof and roof drains were installed to correct years of water infiltration. A 600sf section of the main floor was removed to add daylight and visually connect the lower level. New skylights and glass partitions added transparency across the building’s interior.

Project Highlights:

  • Historically significant building
  • Building envelope modification
  • B3 sustainability
