Puffin Inn Hotel

Anchorage, Alaska

Offering something different.

Challenge: help a locally-owned, independent establishment reinvent itself to better compete with the increasing number of faceless franchise hotels proliferating in the area.

Response: the reimagined Puffin Inn features a prominent public entrance that embraced the urban character of its location. Large lobby windows allowed passing motorists and pedestrians visual access to the warm, bright, inviting space.
