DUKE STUDENT HEALTH + WELLNESS

CENTER, DUKE UNIVERSITY

Durham, North Carolina

Design for Duke University’s new Health + Wellness Center shapes an innovative, creative and welcoming facility. The new Center brings together counseling and health services in one building, taking advantage of the potential for collaboration between previously isolated departments. The building’s program spaces are connected by open, multi-level social areas. Integrated features provide for innovative student outreach—an interactive learning wall features updated information and lifestyle programming against a backdrop of natural, locally sourced materials. Rooms are configured for flexibility, allowing for diverse formats such as lectures, seminars, training and informal gatherings. Here students learn about the many aspects of healthy lifestyles and preventative care—meditation, yoga, sports and preventative care. The building’s landscape features a large patio, which provides an outdoor alternative for classes or contemplation.
