We’re working with the Spokane Indian Housing Authority (SIHA) to plan sustainable site improvements on their campus and to connect their site to an adjacent elder housing complex, and the nearby Spokane Tribe of Indians Longhouse and Tribal Elder Center. Our planning work focuses on connecting SIHA to the community and enabling the SIHA campus to serve as an off-the-grid disaster resilience hub for the larger community. We’re working to address disaster resilience, circulation, and stormwater challenges across the campus. Many SIHA and Spokane tribal members live adjacent to the site in the nearby Spokane Tribe of Indians Longhouse and the Tribal Elder Center. They will directly benefit from the new gathering, teaching, and gardening spaces we are designing.
