S'Klallam Youth Center

Coates Design Seattle Architects as Architects

Designed for the S’Klallam Native American tribe, this building serves as a special place for the youth to spend time together learning about traditions, playing games, and working on school projects. The main recreation area is strategically located at one end of the building so that its glass façade can literally open up to the outdoor area, effectively doubling the amount of usable space. This visual and spatial openness blurs the line between inside and outside and helps visitors maintain a sensation of being connected to the outdoors at all times. The building’s form is a simple pitched roof with dramatic overhangs.
