Asian Health Services Center
The Asian Health Services Center, based in Portland, Oregon, is working to reduce health inequity and improve healthcare quality for all Asians. Serving more than 10,000 people in the Portland Metro area since 1993, the center is building a new administrative headquarters that includes a clinic space, communal kitchen and gathering spaces. NNA Landscape Architecture is providing landscape architecture services for the new 30,000-square-foot building, scheduled to open in 2018. The plant selections are intended to provide year-round enjoyment in the form of flowers, bark, leaf-form, fall color and fragrance. In keeping with the tradition of Chinese and Japanese gardens, we selected mostly Asian species. NNA worked closely with staff, architects and engineers to coordinate the landscape improvements to the site.
