Originally constructed in 1960 as a warehouse, the Northwest Masonic Lodge purchased, renovated and expanded the building in 1991 in order to provide meeting and office facilities for several Masonic Lodges in this region. As additional Masonic Lodges inquired about meeting in the building, the Temple Operating Board commissioned Rogers Krajnak Architects to reorganize the facility in order to accommodate more Lodge meetings without increasing the area of the building. The renovation includes new meeting spaces, consolidated office space and new individual storage spaces for each Lodge. New lighting, power and upgraded mechanical systems will improve the energy efficiency of the building’s systems. New interior finishes were selected to highlight the fact that this is a “blue lodge” referring to the traditional color of regalia in Lodges derived from English or Irish Freemasonry.
