This project was designed to bring Bristol Bay Native Corporation and its subsidiaries together under one roof.
The site was selected for its abundance of birch trees, many of which were carefully preserved and incorporated into the landscape plan. Large boulders outside flow into the atrium area and connect the land to the building, with the red granite exterior symbolizing the tundra of the region.
The large two-story atrium acts as the gathering space, the living room for its users, and large expanses of glass invite the community to experience the building and the culture through art displays located in the atrium.
The board room takes in the magnificent view of the Chugach Mountains. It was important to the shareholders that the building be modern and elegant, but not extravagant. The result is a project that incorporates the values of the shareholders and celebrates the Bristol Bay region and their cultural roots.
