Lakeside Campus for Healing and Hope

Navos Behavioral Healthcare Center for Children, Youth and Families

Burien, WA

Integrating Services and Place

The campus brings together programs provided by Navos and its legacy organizations within a pastoral setting on the shores of Lake Burien. The master plan is centered on the child, interweaving buildings and landscape to support a constant connection with nature and enrich the Center’s ‘Engagement Model of Care.’

Pioneering Model for Care

With a welcoming, camp-like atmosphere designed to reduce stigma, the campus offers an array of programs that address the complex needs of young children, school-aged youth, young adults and families. This is a safe, therapeutic environment tailored to provide children and youth with the treatment and support they need to heal.

Connection to Nature

New buildings are interspersed with native plant communities to create a layered, permeable transition from lakeside to upland forest. Sustainable design is integrated throughout the campus, from supporting wetland biodiversity at stream banks to energy efficient systems at all buildings.
