The operator and design team saw this project as an opportunity to open a dialogue about the building’s history — a Native American Haida house structure — while creating a new home for Pagliacci Pizza. The project team consulted with the Headwater People who provided insights into preserving the history of the building. A 1,300-square-foot addition was thoughtfully designed and constructed along the building’s original lines and incorporates materials like cedar siding that were used by indigenous peoples. Of course, the team also had to ensure the interior was branded appropriately for Pagliacci and outfitted for a busy fast-casual pizza operation.

The judges loved “how unique the entire building and refacing” was for the new design. They said it was “truly a great transformation from one concept to another" and they “got a great bang for the buck.”
