Last December a devastating fire roared through the neighboring buildings adjacent to The Celtic Junction in Saint Paul, MN. As luck would have it the Celtic Junction building suffered only minor damages and took this unfortunate event as a welcoming opportunity to expand! HCM Architects worked with the owners of The Celtic Junction to design a significant renovation and addition to their existing building. The project consists of building out the south building and adding to the lobby to create a new exterior façade and accessible entries, providing two new dance studios with a separate lobby space, more bathrooms and a new custom built office layout for the Center for Irish Music located within the venue. The now empty lot next door allowed them to acquire the vacant land to create a 24 stall parking lot. This highly used and growing establishment was in desperate need of parking, this additional lot will be huge attribute to this thriving community. Construction is finishing up this fall.
