The landscape master plan for this retirement community establishes a blueprint for the development of two residential neighborhoods consisting of 1,100-independent living units, assisted living with accessory-skilled nursing and an extended care center with short-term rehabilitation. Predominant materials used within the landscape are native plant materials, regional stone and rough sawn timbers which give the campus a flavor and character consistent with the area. Utilizing the “native” theme, the plan creates unique landscape opportunities for each of its neighborhoods which provides variety and interest for the community as a whole. Public areas include the Welcome Garden, Summer Garden, Serenity Garden, Strolling Garden and Reading Garden. The landscape affords residents with attractive views and a sense of place while in the outdoors as well as from the comfort of their residences and community spaces.

“Hitchcock goes out of their way to make sure they’re responsive, helpful, and doing things that aren’t necessarily their responsibility. They’re just all-around quality. Any project that I do going forward they will always, always be included in my RFP, whether it’s city or suburban.”
“Some architects will just say ‘how dare you!’ but Hitchcock encourages changes. Relationships and creativity is what it boils down to—it’s why I like them the best and what sets them apart from others.”
“With Hitchcock, I felt like they really went above and beyond, and they’re extremely responsive. They take more of a leadership role, which is helpful, especially with a complicated project.”
“One of Hitchcock’s strengths is the amount of work they put in when they’re getting to know a community. They show you they really understand the issues your community is considering. They’re very thorough in their approach. It’s clear they’ve done their homework.”
“Communication, creativity, meeting timeliness, meeting institutional expectations; we’re not an easy client. Hitchcock goes out of their way to work with us.”

“Their work comes with a level of empathy with the user to say ‘it’s more than plants. How can this be an uplifting space? How can this invigorate someone?’ That’s different. That’s unique.”
“They work in a very collaborative manner in discussions and presentations. They make sure you fully understand it. If there are any questions at all, they can help you with it.”
“Hitchcock thinks beyond straight lines and 90-degree angles.”
“What keeps coming back to me is their willingness, their ability, and their responsiveness to help manage the situation at hand.”
