JAPONSKI BOATHOUSE SCEMATIC DESIGN
Welsh Whiteley Architects developed the schematic design for this unique World War II boathouse building, based on our condition survey performed and a hazardous materials survey performed by others.
Welsh Whiteley Architects prepared a condition assessment, programming, schematic design and cost estimate for adaptive reuse of this World War II era boathouse. The building was originally used to service Navy and Army shore boats, then served the Bureau of Indian Affairs as a boat repair facility and for vocational education by the Mt. Edgecumbe School. The Sitka Maritime Heritage Society has leased this property and plans to use the building as a working boathouse and interpretive museum.
