Client: Tonalea Chapter

Location: Tonalea, Arizona

Size: 6,844 SF

The prominent location of the facility on the Tonalea site makes the Tonalea Chapter House the “hub” of the Tonalea community and a focal point for visitors. The exterior design of the facility respects the existing culture and site conditions of the chapter and provides a cohesive design, while also making a statement for the Tonalea community by using modern materials as well as traditional forms. The design incorporates traditional inferences and motifs that reflect the unique identity of the community. The entrance is aligned to the east, to emphasize the Navajo cultural planning model of greeting the eastern sun at daybreak.
