The Huddle team strolls on 4th Ave in Downtown Anchorage.

Our History

Huddle AK was founded in October 2014 at the kitchen counter of Holly Spoth-Torres. 

At the time, Holly was the Park Superintendent for Anchorage’s Parks & Recreation Department. In that role, Holly led a team that successfully shifted public opinion by gaining support and capital funding for parks and trails. The department implemented tens of millions of dollars of community-supported improvements throughout Anchorage. But her dream was bigger: Holly wanted to launch a company to share her knowledge and experience with more communities, around Alaska and beyond. 

Huddle AK is a landscape architecture, planning, and public engagement consulting firm that uses the concept of a team huddle to emphasize the value of collaboration, leadership, and communication to successfully achieve goals. At Huddle, we work with clients to improve the vibrancy and health of their communities. 

Throughout our careers we have been in the shoes of our clients – working inside of agencies. Now we use that experience alongside agencies to make decisions and recommendations. 

Huddle’s reputation is first-class – we conduct our work with husltle, empathy, loyalty and humility. We are deeply loyal to clients and to each other and aggressively work to achieve goals.


Dena’ina homeland

We live and work on Dena’ina land. We recognize the past and present stewardship of this land by the Dena’ina people, and we honor the culture and language of the Dena’ina people in our community.

This land acknowledgement is part our ongoing effort to recognize and understand the histories and current experiences of Indigenous peoples whose land we occupy.

Our Office
