Douglas Island Building Renovations
|Client:||State of Alaska|
The State of Alaska's Douglas Island Building houses the Department of Fish and Game and Department of Corrections and underwent a major renovation. This remodel included several challenges including the reconfiguration of pedestrian circulation to a new entry, drainage, and working with numerous utilities while creating a pleasant public facility. Through the creation of a series of entry courtyards, landscape lighting, canopies, and decorative paving, pedestrians are redirected to the new building entry. Numerous above ground utilities at the new entry required screening and were integrated into the canopy design. A public gathering plaza centers the landscape with site furnishings and landscaping for use by employees and the public.
