Wake County faced the need to provide stop gap mental health services in the context of the closing of a nearby State-operated hospital. They saw that challenge as an opportunity to improve an array of County-provided services. architecture+ was engaged by the County as a part of LS3P Architect’s team and charged with the development of the 18.9 acre, 60-bed, WakeBrook Campus. The campus includes a 40,000 square foot Crisis Center that offers crisis care and short-term residential treatment units and a 20,000 square foot Recovery Center that offers substance abuse care with residential treatment units.
architecture+ was responsible for driving the programming, visioning options exploration, and floor plan development through the Design Development Phase. Subsequently, architecture+ has been a resource to the team on a range of security, patient safety, and specialty items and has been providing peer review services.
