Mayer/Reed Design Approved for Doernbecher Children’s Hospital Addition


Led by ZGF Architects and Andersen Construction, with landscape architecture by Mayer/Reed, The City of Portland Design Commission unanimously approved plans for an addition to Oregon Health & Science University’s Doernbecher Children’s Hospital at the Marquam Hill campus. The project includes a new 11-story building with roof garden, a public plaza, upgrades to the current drop-off and parking areas and an access trail providing a much-needed connection between SW US Veteran’s Hospital Road and SW Lower Canyon Drive.

The design commission commended the team’s approach to the challenging, sloped site and applauded the thoughtful touches that embed the new addition into the existing campus and landscape. “I can’t think of a more skillful, subtle way to do it than the way you have,” stated Commission Chair Brian McCarter. “It fits like a glove.”
