Anchorage Earthquake: Wow that was a BIG one!
To our valued clients, sub-contractors, contractors, and friends, we hope you are all okay and that your homes and offices have weathered Friday’s earthquake with minimal impact and damage. Our KPB family is all safe and our office suffered minor damage that will not affect operations. Our building is awaiting its structural inspection, so all employees are working remotely until the building is deemed safe for occupants. Please reach out via email until we are back on site.
We ask that everyone please continue to take care of yourselves and your loved ones and that includes healing our “earthquake hangovers”.
It’s a thing, read about methods to help here!
We are proud to announce that KPB was the recipient of two AIA Alaska Design Awards for Excellence in Architecture at this year’s conference! ANTHC Patient Housing received the Merit Award while 3600 Spenard Mixed Use received the Citation Award.
Congratulations to the other award recipients; McCool Carlson Green, Jensen Yorba Lott, and Architects Alaska.

ANTHC Patient Housing
Jury Comments: “This building embodies a high quality of home away from home. Extended stays are embraced as a solution for healing - very important for those from remote areas. The outdoors are brought in, and big, diverse spaces feel intimate, providing an innovative approach to medical treatment and family support.”
3600 Spenard Mixed Use
Jury Comments: “Small but efficient residences with private balconies, commendable address of work force and affordable housing. Clean and simple interiors, simple detailing. Bike storage, sculptured rain gardens, solar charging stations, ground source heat, renewables, and a high performance envelope along with being attractive makes this project successful.”
