Beth Sholom Lifecare Community

HG Design Studio was retained by the owner to complete a comprehensive analysis of the whole campus of this village of long term care, assisted living, memory support, and independent living apartments.  We studied pedestrian flow, landscape amenities, and lighting for all the buildings, with an intensive focus on particular areas of the site.  We considered locations for memorial plantings, focal elements, site amenities, and a raised garden for wheelchairs.  HG Design Studio also created a detailed set of plans for Penn Park featuring a planting design, pergola, paving patterns, seatwall, fence, arbor, wetland deck, and a separate area for interactive gardening in which the residents can tend to vegetables, herbs, and flowers.  The overall master planning contains hardscape, landscape, lighting and irrigation plans, and enhanced planting plans for the main entrance.
