St. Patrick’s Residence
Hitchcock Design Group redeveloped the unused rooftop area at St. Patrick’s Residence, transforming it into an inviting, well-designed space for residents, families and staff to enjoy. The redesigned rooftop garden space provides more shade, plantings and other features to encourage use by residents and staff so that they can receive the benefits of the therapeutic garden. Through collaboration with the project’s contractor, the desired design goals were achieved while maximizing the client’s budget which has afforded the facility’s residents with a much more comfortable and calming outdoor space. The garden features a shade structure, a water feature, handrails for physical therapy, pots for gardening by the residents, moveable furniture, and colorful plants for multi-seasonal interest.

“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.”
“Hitchcock thinks beyond straight lines and 90-degree angles.”
“Communication, creativity, meeting timeliness, meeting institutional expectations; we’re not an easy client. Hitchcock goes out of their way to work with us.”
“What keeps coming back to me is their willingness, their ability, and their responsiveness to help manage the situation at hand.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“They’ve earned our trust. They listen to us and come back with solutions that really meet our needs. They let you start to dream …”
“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.”

“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.”
