Project Name: MultiCare Good Samaritan Hospital, Puyallup, WA

Architect: Good Sam Design Collaborative

This 350,000 square-foot hospital tower houses 160 inpatient rooms, Surgery, Imaging, Emergency Services and a new dramatic lobby and circulation hub. It is elongated along the east-west axis, with nearly all windows on the long south and north facades. The ‘in and out’ façade creates a modulation of the 300-foot long inpatient corridors, as well as scaling of the large building facades to create a comfortable neighborhood fit. Brick was selected for its warmth and neighborliness, low maintenance and durability, sustainability, and its ease in creating ‘floating’ panelization to allow the building to flex during seismic events.

Project Name: Charles Wright Language and Performing Arts Center

Architect: BCRA

The Charles Wright Language and Performing Arts Center located in University Place, Washington is recognized as the campus “Family Room;” a place for students to learn and socialize both formally and informally. The 34,440 square foot building features a custom-designed mix of blended colors for the brick exterior. Chosen for its timelessness and durability, this masonry was selected to reference the rich melting-pot of diverse disciplines taught at the Academy. A dark charcoal brick, comprising about 20% of the mix, was chosen to unite the masonry with the abundant metal sunshades and struts that accessorize the building.

Project Name: Mt Rainier Paradise Inn

Architect: Fletcher Farr Ayotte

2010 Masonry Institute of Washington Merit Award – Commercial Government

The restoration of the fireplaces at Paradise Inn required that three ninety year old, sixty foot tall fireplaces be taken apart and rebuilt, stone by stone. Each of the stones was serial numbered and tagged to record course location and placement, photographed and entered into a computer model. More than 1,000 photographs were taken during demolition. The following summer the chimney was rebuilt with a concrete structure and the original stones as veneer. One million pounds of stone were removed and a half a million pounds of stone were reinstalled. The igneous stone was sourced on the park grounds approximately three miles from the lodge, during the original construction

Project Name: Sixth & Woodland office building, Lacey, WA

Architect: Anderson Boone Architects, PS

This true class-A office building boasts elegant materials, view balconies, and a timeless character. Flanked by two arterial streets, the building has two prominent and protected entry elements. Brick was chosen for its ageless appearance, durability, and to unify with the adjacent university established in 1895. The masonry is recessed and corbelled to provide relief and shadow to the 80,000 square foot structure. Additional character was achieved through the use of three brick patterns (running bond, soldier, and rowlock) and by utilizing two traditional brick textures and colors (mission Imperial Red and smooth Castle White).
