Providing better care for the veterans of the Pacific Northwest by creating an atmosphere of respect and dignity

In the past 15 years, veteran suicide rates have been on the rise, making veteran mental health a national concern. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) in Seattle, Washington, had a vision—to create a space that focused on elevating and delivering care to the men and women who have served our country. From this vision came the Mental Health & Research building.

To make this important project come to life, the VA hired us for architecture, interior design, and mechanical and electrical engineering services. Our project design reflects the needs of veterans as well as the VA’s strong commitment to resiliency, energy stewardship, and healthy spaces through sustainable design strategies. In addition to patient rooms and laboratories, the building features a peaceful indoor rock garden, group counseling spaces, a landscaped plaza, and other quiet places.

In 2019, the Mental Health & Research Building opened for business. In addition to providing valuable mental health and addiction services to a previously unserved community, the facility contains research labs where scientists and medical professionals can learn more about how to better treat mental health problems.
