Owners of Peninsula Ear, Nose & Throat Clinic assigned K+A the task of designing a building for their practice that had a residential feel to it. K+A’s solution was a two-story 3,144 sf. clinic including 4 exams, a laboratory, 3 offices, break room, and a 2 car garage for the owners. Located between a public park and senior center the building exterior is weathered wood stained cedar lap siding above a stone wainscot that harkens to its coastal proximity of the Kenai River mouth.
Interior spaces incorporate rich mahogany wood finishes with abundant natural lighting. A salt water aquarium feature separates the reception area from a children’s play area. Glimpses of the Kenai and Alaskan Mountain ranges are provided from critically placed fenestration. Roof lines reflect the area’s mountains and adjacent Kenai River bluff line.
