Seattle Children’s is recalibrating how it delivers care by establishing outpatient clinics in underserved communities across the Puget Sound region to decentralize care.

Clad in textured brick, the North Clinic shares its design vernacular with the brick facades of the adjacent Providence buildings and central utility plant. Every detail down to the color of the brick was coordinated with Seattle Children’s and Providence in mind, resulting in a building that reflects both organizations and cultures coming together on a shared campus while maintaining Seattle Children’s brand.

The design-build team worked with the masons to put a playful twist on the brick, resulting in skittled brickwork that provides value and visual interest to the project without added costs.
