Noted Portland architect John Calvin Stevens, in business with his son, John Howard Stevens, designed the campus to meet Nichols' requirements.

Residential buildings all had wings coming off a central structure. In the center were quarters for staff as well as dressing room/bath facilities for patients.

The wings were crucial, however, providing patient sleeping that could be open to the air on two sides.
