Construction is coming along very, very quickly. We took a tour of the whole building, and visited the 'mock up' guest room. Scroll through the photos !
Very exciting to see exterior metal panels starting to go up, and very quickly! The concept developed of the "Birch Forest" is carried throughout the exterior of the building and is expressed by these light-colored vertical panels that are 12 feet in height. The silhouette pattern of light colored panels and dark colored windows appear to be random. However, behind these exterior walls are 200+ mostly identical guest rooms that do not compromise efficient modular layouts required for this project program.
Thanks to Jae Shin.

We just moved to a brand new office on 500 L Street. We're still settling in and love the new open office work environment. We think the best part is the 'sit-to-stand' desks, where staff will change posture based on their needs. Also, you can't beat the panorama view to Cook Inlet. Keep posted for updates.
On April 10, 2014, Alaska's first Cabela's store opened near the corner of C Street and O'Malley road. Thanks to the work of KPB Architects, the building is not just a sporting goods store, but a celebration of the Alaskan wilderness.

"When a community comes together, a vision is realized"
While designing the future of Anchorage, we had a vision to bring our community together to help over 20,000 Anchorage children living in poverty.
Throughout 2013, KPB Architects was dedicated to creating pupil+paper, an event to raise funds for The Children's Lunchbox as well as sponsoring high school scholarships for higher education. The Children's Lunchbox provides food directly to elementary students, so that children living in poverty have nutritious food to eat.
Thank you to our friends and business partners for supporting our vision and making a difference for children in need.
Because of us all coming together, $40,000 was raised for The Children's Lunchbox.
