Stroh Architecture, Inc. of Prescott recently received a state award for the firm’s work on preservation of Window Rock’s historic Navajo Nation Council Chamber.
During the June Arizona Preservation Foundation awards ceremony, the firm received the Governor’s James W. Garrison Heritage Award in recognition of efforts to restore and preserve the historic building.
About two years ago, the Navajo Nation Council called for renovation of the Council Chamber, which was built in the early 1920s to serve as a meeting place for the Navajo government, according to a news release from the 23rd Navajo Nation Council, Office of the Speaker.
The renovations included replacement of the entire floor, roofing, and rearrangement of seating for the council members and general public.
Stroh Architecture did the architectural planning and design for the renovations, and Keyah Construction oversaw the construction work.
