Southcentral Counseling Center

Anchorage, Alaska

All are welcome.

Situated atop a wooded ridge in the heart of Anchorage’s medical district, this counseling center provides outpatient mental health counseling and post-institutional day programs, such as occupational therapy and sheltered workshops.

The design emphasized a non-institutional flavor and consideration of a beautiful site. Energy conserving features included earth sheltering and clerestory day lighting of corridors and meeting rooms.

The unique crescent shaped plan was developed from a concept of four suite offices, each with a view and private access.
