Northwest Specialty Clinics at RiverBend

General Information

Northwest Specialty Clinics at RiverBend

The vision for Northwest Specialty Clinics was realized through the creation of a state-of-the-art diagnostic facility that features a calming, positive environment. The building was inspired by ancient Eastern philosophy, which maintains that health is a result of balancing the five forms of energy.

This balance is symbolized by five elements of the natural environment and their related transformations, and is interpreted through the integration of the five physical elements - fire, earth, metal, water, and wood - which are incorporated in the architecture.

This holistic view of health, life, and the environment is reinforced in the purposeful integration of natural light, views, a connection with nature and its calming effects.
