Holiday Inn Express    
Fairbanks, Alaska

The 4-story 114 room hotel is based on a floor plan developed by Holiday Inn, but the exterior has been designed anew to create a rustic look starting with the heavy timber framed porte-cochere, then continuing to the stone facade that steps up the walls and up to the extended eaves of the roof supported on large wood braces.  Arched roof features soften the otherwise rectilinear geometry.   The building features an indoor pool and large dining lounge area.
