Portland State University Center For Student Health & Counseling

Portland, OR
12,000 sf

A major renovation and expansion of the existing clinic providing mental & physical health, dental, counseling and testing services targeted to PSU Students. Working with the Director, Program Managers and the Architect, CZ|DS participated in programming and design of the 12,000 sf expanded facility, providing additional office, meeting, testing and counseling space. New program offerings were jointly developed — a Health Promotion program developed to empower people to make informed decisions about their health, complete with a ‘Mind-Spa’ providing a quiet space for students to learn to relax and rejuvenate. Special design attention was given to areas supporting students: flexible, multi-use areas with improved wayfinding. A calming updated color palette contributed to the overall sense of health and well-being.
