Maintaining the cultural values of the Puyallup Tribe was critical in the development of the new Puyallup Tribe Restorative Correctional Facility.

The 15,000-square-foot, 23-bed adult correctional facility is the first phase of a holistic justice and restorative program campus. The creative design and landscape embraces the urban tribe’s cultural values while meeting federal standards for crime prevention through environmental design.

The 29-square-mile reservation is one of the most urban reservations in the United States. This striking masonry design reflects the generous and welcoming attitude of the tribe.
