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.
