City of Anaktuvuk Pass

Anaktuvuk Pass is an Inupiat Numamiut community of about 300 located in the central Brooks Range. CCHRC and partners, including the city of AKP, designed and constructed a prototype house in 2008 that demonstrated sustainable, climate-specific, affordable building in rural Alaska.

Anaktuvuk Pass Prototype Home

CCHRC worked with the community of Anaktuvuk Pass in 2009 to design and construct an affordable, energy efficient, healthy home that incorporated indigenous elements like earth-berming and a sod roof. The design drives down construction and energy costs and fits the local climate and culture.
