Chinook Medical Building

In association with Ellerbe Alaska, Inc., Fairbanks, AK


Having been chosen by the local building profession as the best wood framed commercial building in the city for 1985, the 6500 sq. ft. Chinook Medical Clinic can accurately be described as a success. It’s warm exterior colors of cedar tongue and groove siding and copper reveal, along with the bright color scheme at the interior, bring life to an otherwise dull area climate. Working at Ellerbe Alaska Architects as associate designer, the opportunities for innovative design were realized with the arched entry that extends and telescopes into the reception area and are then translated down to the reception desk and work area.
