The Welch Road Translational Research Campus reflects the new vision for the Stanford University School of Medicine to transform the Welch Road properties from a parcel-zoned, suburban land-use to a more integrated, pedestrian-focused campus. The campus is composed of two buildings: The Jill and John Freidenrich Translational Research Center (pictured here) and the CJ Huang Asian Liver Center and Academic Medical Office Building.

Practitioners occupying the new Freidenrich Center were previously housed in multiple locations on the Stanford Medical Center Campus, which hindered interdisciplinary collaboration. Bringing them together under one roof will help researchers discover useful therapies for patients.

The 30,690 sf Freidenrich Center provides space for 250 staff members involved in clinical research and houses three organizations: the Clinical Trials Research Units; the Cancer Clinical Trials Office; and Spectrum, the Center for Clinical and Translational Education and Research.

The design of the center interprets Stanford’s campus vernacular in a contemporary way with a series of connected outdoor spaces; materials such as stone, terra cotta, glass, and wood; and deep arcades and roof eaves. The generous landscape sets this building apart from its immediate neighbors.

The main entry walk from the street is framed by a terra cotta panel wall and stone-covered arcade, which leads to a quiet entry courtyard. A second-floor terrace overlooks this courtyard, and outdoor stairs connect all levels of the building from this central space.

Clinic spaces on the ground floor enjoy views into screened and planted view courtyards. Common outdoor areas serve as useful spaces and quiet retreats while reinforcing Stanford’s tradition of elegant landscape design.
