NorthWind Architects, LLC is a Juneau based partnership pursuing excellence in architecture, planning, project coordination, and construction administration. With three principal architects, NorthWind has a rich history of public and private design experience throughout Alaska and Oregon. We provide quality architectural design and design services on all projects. We value close working relationships with clients and are committed to delivering projects on time and on budget.
NorthWind is an intimate collaborative studio. All levels of professional service are handled by a principal architect. This creates a connection with clients and users that is immediate and direct. From this, the firm has developed a philosophy of cooperative design. Good design solutions do not come effortlessly from one person working in isolation. Rather, good design comes through a collaborative process including clients, building occupants, and long-term caretakers.
The NorthWind practice is a living part of the communities in which we work. We actively participate in shaping our environment and how we all live together now and in the future. Our motivation is to serve the public's best interest. This reaches the essence of Architecture in a much deeper and enriching way than any singular building or project. Our storefront location in downtown Juneau offers an open and available community studio where anyone is welcome to wander in, browse our library and ask questions about design.
Alaska is a truly amazing place to live, though it can be a difficult place to build. The surrounding mountains and glaciers are simultaneously awe inspiring and humbling. This is the mindset we carry to the studio each day: inspired to do good work and motivated by the challenge of shaping our communities to enhance life in the north.
