Bon Secours - various projects

From Left to Right:

St. Francis Cancer Institute - the Cancer Institute features a healing garden that is integrated into the design of the building.  A wall of glass windows allows patients to enjoy the signature stone wall and water feature surrounded by colorful, lush plantings during long hours of treatment.  HG chose the warm stone to complement the building and designed the wall as a backdrop for the fountain that also screens a nearby road.

St. Francis Child Care Center - HG designed a toddler lot at the Child Care Center at St. Francis that features open-ended play structures like rocks for climbing, a river, and safari animals to stimulate young minds for creative play.

St. Francis Medical Center - In lieu of a sea of asphalt as the first thing greeting hospital guests, the team at HG created a site plan that features a tree lined boulevard with pedestrian-scale lighting, and a series of smaller parking lots on either side, making the walk from the car the first in a series of soothing, calming measures designed to welcome guests.  At the entry a large central fountain and vine covered pergolas soften the face of the hospital building.  At the back of the hospital a sunken chapel garden is one of the signature features of the hospital.

St. Marys Guest House - The Evelyn D. Reinhart Guest House at St. Mary's Hospital was designed to be a home away from home for families of patients.  HG's concepts for the garden space featured areas for private reflection as well as an area for gatherings of large family groups.  The landscape walls enclose visitors like an embrace, shielding them from the public areas in addition to providing a feeling of privacy for families supporting loved ones in the nearby hospital.
