The Mat-Su Health Foundation (MSHF) is a new office designed for a non-profit organization whose mission is to improve the health and wellness of the people living in the community. The spaces are meant to build community and bring people together in new ways by creating areas for providers to collocate and provide space for public outreach programs. The facility is approximately 46,000 SF and consists of two, 2-story office buildings connected by a central core area and a grand staircase to promote walking between the floors.
The interior and exterior finish pallet takes its cues from the surrounding environment and echoes the natural colors found in the community throughout the year. Sustainably harvested Accoya wood siding provides a contextual connection to other community buildings while energy efficient systems create a space that is safe, welcoming, and accommodating.
