Open in the summer of 2014, the Dena’ina Wellness Center was designed around a new model of care to allow medical providers to work in an open office area, sharing knowledge and resources in patient-focused “care teams.” The facility includes 52,000 SF of medical clinic space and an additional 8,000 SF of public gathering area.
The leaning columns and louvered beams were designed to look like traditional fish drying racks and provide a screen from afternoon sun. The project was certified LEED Silver by the US Green Building Council in 2015.
