Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences constructed a new 35,000 square foot building to support the addition of new programs and provide much-needed student study space. The interior wall construction used a unique technique allowing us to reconfigure rooms with our changing needs of a young and growing institution. The techniques we used to design the layout as well as the furniture and equipment revolved around a user centric and collaborative design thinking methodology, pulling input from staff, faculty, and students. We also relied greatly on the ‘Together-Alone’ model of space design that allows students to freely move between quiet alone space to collaborative group areas. This session will discuss our design thinking methodology, how we made decisions, and a review of the outcomes and lessons learned.
