The Weyerhaeuser Center for Health Sciences at the University of Puget Sound is sited at the edge of a grove of mature cedar and fir trees, and defines the edge of a new Commencement Walk. The exterior echoes the university’s Tudor Gothic architecture with its simple gable roof forms, projecting bay windows, and a warm palette of materials including brick, local sandstone and terra cotta. Over 260,000 bricks in several colors were made for the building in nearby Newcastle, WA and mixed on site by the masons to reflect the character of existing buildings. Carved blocks of Wilkeson sandstone clad the west entry tower, marking a special place along Commencement Walk.
