Nisqually Tribal Administration Building: Done By A Local Native Architect Firm (WA)

Nisqually Tribal Administration Building: done by a local Native Architect firm (WA)

The 26,000 square foot $10 million facility will incorporate the history and culture of the Tribe. What we love about it:

  • Zoomorphic reference for the roofline and cladding. (Salmon is a cultural symbol and drives the local economic engine.)
  • Interior expression using water & wood.
  • The column structure referencing the local forest.

The Olympian, a local newspaper reports the tribe now operates the Red Wind Casino, recently completed a $7.6 million youth and community center, and has started building a $20 million, 300-bed correctional facility. They also own WHH Nisqually Services construction company, She-Nah-Nam Seafoods and two gas stations.
