Dena’ina Wellness Center
|Client:||Kenaitze Indian Tribe|
|Components:||Landscape Design, Site Design, Sustainable Design|
Corvus Design provided site and landscape design services for the development of a new health and wellness center for the Kenaitze Indian Tribe. The project goals were to develop a wellness center that encourages healthy living and provides a setting that is culturally relevant. The site design incorporated aspects of therapeutic spaces that provide a connection to natural environments and a relaxing and comfortable environment for the building’s users. An important focus for the project was the development of a culturally rich landscape that provides opportunities for traditional uses, and was grounded within the landscapes of the area. In addition to cultural opportunities, we provided site design services for the location of the building, development of efficient and logical pedestrian and vehicular routes, and trying to maximize open space and the retention of vegetation.
