This new 2-story facility for the Alaska Dance Theatre Company consists of five dance studios, a large commons area and administrative spaces. The building is built from wood, with a play between metal siding, wood siding and strategically placed windows that bring natural light deep into spaces. Window openings and proportions, material changes and color provide playful contrasts as one moves around the building. The building interior is open, with high ceilings and exposed structure. The spaces are very flexible, allowing Alaska Dance Theatre to use their space in a variety of ways. The entry and lobby are also open and inviting.
