Using the architect’s concept plan, Hitchcock Design Group refined and developed the campus master plan, accounting for building locations, land use, site circulation, landscape and water features, and the thematic design and programming for two courtyards.
Designers developed plans to reinforce the goals of this environmentally conscious client. An existing native hardwood forest is the backdrop for a 15-acre pond that not only serves as the campus’ stormwater detention, but also provides geothermal energy for the facility. The landscape is designed with native, low-maintenance plant material that blends urban and naturalistic edges for maximum visual impact.
An island destination features a fitness trail and a variety of water elements viewable from multiple locations, adding to the picturesque site plan. A Healing Courtyard accommodates a variety of patient therapy programs, while the Seasons Courtyard provides a dynamic outdoor environment for staff to relax and reflect.
