Heritage University Expansion

Location Toppenish, Washington
Design Principal Tom Kundig
Principal Kirsten R. Murray

Located in rural Toppenish, Washington, Heritage University is a growing and transforming campus. Olson Kundig first worked with the university to envision how their campus could expand in the future through 2025. The outcome was a master plan that created a better sense of home for students, creating clustered pods of buildings instead of the former disjointed and spread out campus.

In 2014 three new buildings were completed as part of the first design phase. The new facilities include a 13,500-square-foot classroom and art building that features a fully equipped ceramics studio, a 4,200-square-foot student services and information technology building, and an 11,500-square-foot dining commons building. Each new building is strategically set on the campus quad, activating the public-green space and encouraging interaction between students and nature. The architecture of the new buildings is inspired by and highlights both the Native American heritage of the Yakima Valley and also the growing Latino culture. Another phase of building is currently underway.
