USDA Forest Service Sitka Administrative Office

This new, combined Administrative Office is home to the Tongass National Forest and the Sitka Ranger District joint offices. We renovated an existing warehouse into office space, and renovated an existing shop building for storage needs. The exterior of the two structures are designed to fit the context and character of historic Sitka, as well as the Forest Service’s Built Environment Image Guide. Building on the concept of using the Forest Service resources, biomass is the primary heat source for this administrative building.
