LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE

PORTFOLIO


“Our work is rooted in a deep understanding of the unique context of each project. We are passionate about design and believe that effective design adds tremendous value and has the power to substantively change the world. Our team engages in thoughtful collaboration to create beautiful places that advance our clients’ goals, improve environmental quality and inspire a sense of community.” LEONARDO ALVAREZ, FASLA, AIA, LEED ® AP DESIGN PRINCIPAL AND DISCIPLINE LEADER


APPROACH / At Perkins+Will, engaging landscapes and urban spaces form the foundation for healthy, vibrant communities and sustainable infrastructure.

Perkins + Will’s Landscape Architecture practice is deeply ingrained across a broad range of project types and scales, from intimate healing gardens to large-scale districts. We believe that the character and texture of the landscape profoundly influences both built structures and quality of life. Well-designed, engaging landscapes and urban spaces form the foundation for healthy, vibrant communities and sustainable infrastructure. Enriched by Perkins + Will’s expertise across multiple disciplines, our landscape architects and urban planners work with our architects and designers to create activated, memorable, and timeless places. Across geographic regions and diverse clientele, four core values drive and define our work:

SUSTAINABLE DESIGN Guided by a sense of place and sensitivity towards the landscape, we actively incorporate innovative and time-tested sustainability strategies in every aspect of our practice.

DESIGN EXCELLENCE Praised as “intriguing and accessible” and “not only aspirational, but implementable,” our awardwinning projects advance the standards for quality beyond the building.

INTERDISCIPLINARY COLLABORATION Our studio model means that we can establish the vision, identify the means, and develop the designs and frameworks for any scale project, whether as team lead or embedded partner.

SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY We believe well-designed, engaging landscapes and urban spaces form the foundation for healthy, vibrant communities.


CORE THEMES / While our practice incorporates the full spectrum of Landscape Architecture capabilities, the following are a few of the core themes that run throughout our work and shape our reputation in the field.

PUBLIC REALM + CONNECTIONS Reimagining public spaces as a means to jumpstart economic growth, boost quality of life, and set the stage for civic engagement.

MIXED-USE + COMMUNITY Inspired by the distinct natural and physical elements of place to propose iconic design solutions that link people, place, and environment.

RESEARCH + EDUCATION Rethinking traditionally isolated facilities as walkable districts that foster creative collision and interdisciplinary exchange—the key ingredients for innovation.

HEALTH + RESTORATION Crafting restorative, living landscapes with tangible health benefits for patients, visitors, and staff.

Designing a signature public meeting ground that creates new connections between Atlanta’s urban neighborhoods. Built on a loop of reclaimed railroad tracks, the Atlanta BeltLine is a 22mile multi-modal corridor consisting of transit, a linear greenway, and multiuse trails. This groundbreaking public infrastructure effort connects 45 historic neighborhoods around the city’s urban core, catalyzing economic development as it circles the city. Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. hired our team as the lead designer and manager for their Corridor Design, which provides a strategic framework to realize a functional, cohesive, and elegant urban design over time. The Corridor Design highlights the character of the diverse landscapes through which the Atlanta BeltLine travels, creating an episodic experience in harmony with the urban fabric of the city. At the same time, it reinforces continuity and identity for the entire project by establishing a family of infrastructure elements, like bridges, walls, and railings, as well as strategies to incorporate public art and signage.

Breaking down barriers between “town and gown� to create a collaborative space for research and discovery. Innovation Square is an award-winning urban redevelopment project that transforms 12 underutilized blocks in Gainesville, Florida into a walkable urban research district that capitalizes on the entrepreneurial energy of the University of Florida. For decades, an aging hospital and its surface parking lots created a gulf between the University and the revitalized downtown area. Working with the University, the Gainesville Community Redevelopment Agency, Shands Healthcare, the City of Gainesville, private development groups, and diverse stakeholders, Perkins+Will created a long term Development Plan that projects future building programs with a flexible urban framework. At the heart of Innovation Square, a pedestrian-friendly greenway connects the community, promotes creative collision and sustainability. This walkable, high-density district is already attracting researchers, students, and start-ups with lively spaces to live, work, play and collaborate.

ONE MIAMI RIVERWALK* MIAMI, FLORIDA

Creating a signature public space where the Miami River meets Biscayne Bay

When it was completed in 2005, One Miami was the first new luxury residential project to be built in Downtown Miami in more than two decades. It has played a pivotal role in turning downtown into a true 24-hour district of the city. With its exceptional bayfront site where the Miami River meets Biscayne Bay the One Miami links the City’s Baywalk with the Miami Riverwalk. The Riverwalk was developed in partnership with the City of Miami and includes a variety of plazas, water features, and native tropical landscaping. The baywalk promenade features six commissioned site-specific works of art by prominent Latin American artists. The design leads the public through a series of art plazas and courts including the Waterwall Plaza and the Plaza of Light.

ANDREW YOUNG PLAZA* ATLANTA, GEORGIA

A public plaza designed to honor and pay tribute to the life, historic contributions, and legacy of Andrew Young.

This design was the winning entry for the international design competition held by Central Atlanta Progress to provide a platform to commemorate Andrew Young’s legacy and contributions on the local, regional, national, and international level. At the focal point of the Plaza stands a towering bronze obelisk representing Andrew Young’s remarkable presence and is the source of life and movement within the plaza. The circular bronze floor plate details Andrew Young’s illustrious career through five embedded logos which represent his theological, social, political, and cultural contributions. The surrounding footprints on the bronze plate represent the contributions of people involved in the civil rights movement and suggest a continuing journey. Water within the plaza is used to symbolize the non-violent resistance that Young promoted throughout his life. The only obstacle in the flow of water is the granite wall - the barrier of racial segregation and efforts to impede the progress of African Americans and oppressed people toward achieving equality. The gentle flow of water over the wall depicts the ultimate triumph of non-violence over hatred. The concentric rings - with footprints and interactive lights - echo a momentum toward justice and equality set in motion by Andrew Young’s lifetime of good works.

Commissioned by The Performing Arts Center of Greater Miami, this plaza serves as a spectacular public space within a tight urban setting. Articulated with rings of plantings, water, and unique paving patterns representing Miami’s multiple cultures, the plaza connects the Opera House and the Concert Hall across Biscayne Boulevard. The fountain, conceived through a collaboration with artist Anna Murch, creates a magical outdoor performance space on special event days. The public spaces and landscape architecture are completed in collaboration with Balmori Associates. The historic “Sears Tower” will be preserved and its base will be adapted for use as a small restaurant. As a highly visible anchor to the public plaza, the tower continues to serve as a city landmark.

TOPKAPI ISTANBUL, TURKEY

This “Fold Community” concept creates spaces to flourish at every stage of life, from childhood to retirement. Topkapi is a visionary mixed-use redevelopment of an industrial site near historic Istanbul. With 4,000+ housing units, this project responds to the rising demand for integrated urban living at the heart of a growing metropolis. Inspired by the client’s signature “fold elements”—or strategicallysited public spaces—the master plan proposes a large-scale “fold community.” Across the entire site, shared outdoor spaces and public plazas enhance and connect the daily lives of residents, visitors, and workers in the community. The Master Plan interprets life as a path marked by universal stages, from childhood to retirement, and then folds this path into a physical design for the site. The unique interests and needs of each stage of life drive the design. More social, activated spaces are balanced by relaxing, contemplative scenes. As the city grows, forwardlooking projects like Topkapi will play an important role in shaping the character of civic and community life. The Topkapi Fold Community will create spaces for people at every stage of life to interact and flourish.

PUERTO RICO CAPITOL DISTRICT MASTER PLAN SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO


This master plan organizes the Capitol District for the first time, setting the stage for the nation’s most important cultural and political events. The Vision Plan will guide the transformation of the Puerto Rico Capitol District into a mixed-use government district with a successful tourism component. Like the 1901 McMillan Plan that created the National Mall, the Vision Plan will ensure that the historic Capitolio and its District will be a popular destination and a source of pride of generations of Puerto Ricans to come.

Existing Public Realm

This plan reorganizes the public realm along the two main axes of the Capitolio building. A new pedestrian mall, which extends from the Capitolio steps to the San Juan Bay creates much-needed open space for formal and informal gatherings. The Paseo de Covadonga, a parallel street below Ponce de LĂŠon Avenue, is returned to its original function of a Paseo, or a pedestrian promenade, to strengthen the east-west axis within the District. The Vision Plan and Design Standards will establish a cohesive, connected district that optimizes land resources and historic assets while linking the District to other major initiatives in San Juan.

PANAMA ENTERTAINMENT DISTRICT PANAMA CITY, PANAMA

Five interconnected mixed-use districts on the Panama Canal and a wide “ribbon park” weave cultural activity and greenspace into the city. Located at the southern gateway to the Panama Canal, this 310 acre site is an underutilized area at the southern edge of the densely populated Panama City. Our master plan creates a mixed-use entertainment district of retail, hotel, residential, and cultural elements anchored by the Frank Gehry Museum of Biodiversity. In addition, the project would complete the Cinta Costera, a developing waterfront parkway that connects downtown Panama City with the Via Panamericana. The master plan proposes a development framework of five interconnected districts. However, the focal point of the plan is a 200 meter-wide waterfront greenway. This green “ribbon park” would provide significant public open space to residents and visitors, along with opportunities to weave in cultural attractions. Meanwhile, a pedestrian spine connects the proposed convention center to the waterfront greenway, creating a dynamic retail corridor of shops and restaurants, against the backdrop of historic preservation.

The design focuses around three key frameworks of Transformation, Discovery, and Health that create an overlay of unique experiences throughout the gardens. These frameworks begin to form stories that guide our design and appeal to different audiences. From children to researchers, from educators to chefs, from gardeners to artists, the garden offers a story that will resonate with people of all different backgrounds and interests. The garden strives to set precedents in sustainability via spaces like the proposed Education Pavilion that is being designed around the Living Building Challenge and the Water Filtration Garden that will clean gray water through a series of beautiful water gardens. With high ambition and expectation, Louisville’s Waterfront Botanical Gardens is being designed as a catalyst for the continued revitalization of Louisville.

As the district begins to embrace the Plaza as their own backyard, it will grow into a centerpiece for Market East and a world-class park for Indianapolis. The new City-County Building Plaza is designed for the next generation of urban living in Indianapolis. As the heart of Market East, an emerging district that is welcoming new residential developments, a transit center, and corporate headquarters to Downtown, the Plaza plays a critical role in bringing together a unique mix of users. As a signature public space in the city, the new CCB Plaza symbolizes the modern, sustainable, engaged public lifestyle that is evolving into a distinct new downtown culture.

SUSTAINABLE SYSTEMS

SEASONAL ACTIVITIES

The future Plaza is composed of threeparts, forming a triptych that reflects the threepart composition of the building and defines space for a variety of experiences. In The Playscape, The Commons, and The Pavilion, art and sport, activity and relaxation, work and play can coexist within a flexible framework. The modern geometry of the Plaza responds to the form of the building’s midcentury architecture, bringing back clean lines as the organizational framework. This form supports the plaza’s function, with major circulation patterns aligned with the building’s geometry. Rather than funneling over 4,000 visitors a day to the building entrance, the Plaza design prioritizes the user experience of the park itself, with circulation routes that encourage the public to stay, play and participate in the scene.

ATLANTA, GEORGIA


A new civic plaza creates an open-air living room where there once stood an unwelcoming driveway and parking deck. Perkins+Will’s new Atlanta office presented the opportunity to transform an existing building in the heart of Midtown by both reusing the building’s worthy assets and correcting its signature faults. Recently certified LEED Platinum with the highest score ever recorded in the Northern Hemisphere, the success of the project suggests that reuse and renovation can be central to the concept of sustainability. While earning accolades for excellence in building design, one of the project’s most profound features is its renewed connection to the street. The entrance to the original 1980s building featured a circular driveway connecting to a street-level parking bay — a car-centric orientation more typical of suburban office parks. The site redesign encloses and repurposes that parking level as a spectacular new 10,000 square foot space for the Museum of Design Atlanta and replaces the driveway with a new civic plaza. This outdoor space invites the public to occupy a comfortable, tree-shaded plaza and provides access to the Museum, Library, and Perkins+Will’s new office. Additional gathering space is provided on the fifth floor roof terrace, where healing herb gardens set the stage for city views.

VISION PLAN

HUTCHINSON ISLAND WATERFRONT SAVANNAH, GEORGIA

Crafting a modern vision for Hutchinson Island that will change Savannah’s skyline and complement its persona.

These three riverfront parcels comprise the rare opportunity of a largely undeveloped property across from arguably America’s most beautiful city. Perkins+Will is proposing a vision plan for a moderately dense, mixed-use Hutchinson Island that is organized into four guiding themes: that it must be economically viable, that it must be civic-minded, that it must be environmentally sustainable, and that it must be beautiful. Though each theme can encompass a wide range of mixed uses, the prevailing framework helps to establish a unique and lasting identity for Hutchinson Island, one that complements or finds inspiration in the iconic city across the river. The result is a bold, overarching story for the island where there exists now only a scattered collection of ideas. As we approach Hutchinson Island with an eye towards leaving a lasting legacy, our goal is to create a combination of uses that add up to more than a fleeting memory, or a weekend visit, but a place that unfolds as a destination that must be experienced over time.

Redefining the typical South American resort into an ecologically significant and socially vibrant development. With a significant natural preserve, and numerous limitations on development, the Hines development on Mococa Beach was an exercise in creative master planning. Working closely with the architects, a plan was developed that allowed for unobstructed ocean views for all residents, while providing a wide range of amenities for guests. Long, continuous boardwalks connect housing blocks to both pristine, natural preserves and white sand beaches. Combined with a plethora of amenities, such as sculptural playgrounds, sports courts, and open lawn areas, the development offers a spectrum of activities for guests to engage. Pockets of usable green space breakup a substantial parking requirement, maintaining the development’s natural feel and ecology sensitivity. A chic waterfront pool, club, and native garden are sited on the properties high point, providing unmatched views of the Brazillian coast.

SITE DESIGN

SAILTOWER JEDDAH, KSA

Situated along the Corniche in Jeddah, marks the transition between the desert landscape and the Red Sea, and extends the growth of waterfront development advancing north from the old city center. Inspired by its prominent location directly on the Red Sea, this project explores the concept of the ‘architectural sail’ as a multifunctional architectonic element that responds to the essential influences of program, site and climate to create a unique expression of texture and light. The project, situated along the Corniche in Jeddah, marks the transition between the desert landscape and the Red Sea, and extends the growth of waterfront development advancing north from the old city center. The recent growth of Jeddah as a resort destination for both Saudis as well as foreigners has raised the matter of how to create successful hospitality environments that address both climatic and cultural issues. The brief calls for a 60,000sm mixture of luxury hotel functions, serviced apartments and condominiums, with below grade parking for 600 cars. Major program elements are organized as a continuous ribbon from below grade to penthouse, becoming more private as they rise. Correspondingly, balcony size increases with height to create ‘outdoor rooms’ at the upper residential levels.

CORPORATE CAMPUS

DARDEN RESTAURANT GROUP ORLANDO, FLORIDA

The demanding and majestic Florida wetlands dictate the character of this sweeping corporate campus.

Darden’s new headquarters consolidates all corporate offices under one roof for the first time in 40 years. Just as the company is thoroughly grounded in Orlando’s cultural landscape, their corporate campus called for a program that both preserves and responds to the surrounding wetlands. Throughout the site, architectural plantings help link interior spaces to exterior spaces and the building to the landscape. Allees of towering palms provide scale reference for the 50-foot-high building wings. The curved allee extends the alignment of the internal “Main Street,” gently guiding pedestrians from the transit stop to the entry. Inside, a multi-functional courtyard for outdoor breaks, small informal gatherings, and large outdoor events joins the main building’s two wings. This sustainable landscape design features key techniques for low water use and optimal stormwater management including the use of native plant materials, drip irrigation, native wildflower zones, grouping plants by water needs, and minimizing areas of less water efficient turf. Bio-swales in the parking islands capture stormwater run-off and a native hardwood hammock was designed as a buffer between the parking lot and the building.

SITE DESIGN

UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA INSTITUTE ON AGING C.T.R.B. GAINESVILLE, FLORIDA

Healing gardens for patients and researchers provide respite while sustaining life on site and within the watershed. Sustaining life itself provides healing, the center pillar of the design philosophy behind the Institute on Aging (IOA-CTRB), which serves as the home for a number of active research training programs on aging. At the site level, the goal has been to promote a place that will restore the systems of life on its site and within its watershed, encourage the creation of communities where the majority of people can lead their daily lives without the need of a car, and promote the idea of true sustainability by encouraging urban agriculture within the project boundaries. Borrowing ideas from the theory of Biophilic design, the site manifests in its structure the inherent human affinity to affiliate with natural systems and processes. It does that by its embodiment of a naturalistic dimension that reveals itself in the form of a leaf. As the leaf is drawn in the canvas of the site it begins to work as leaf structures are intended to do, by carrying storm water through vein-like channels into a central creek/mid rib that finally discharge its content into a retention pond.

BMW MASTER PLAN SPARTANBURG, SOUTH CAROLINA

The selected Master Plan is intended to support a Phase One building of unique design character that establishes a sense of place. In 2013, BMW stakeholders embarked on a Master Planning process for the new Central Office Complex at the BMW Plant 10 Manufacturing Facility outside the City of Greer in Spartanburg County, South Carolina. The site identified for the new Central Office Complex is comprised of approximately 78 acres and located in the Southeast corner of the existing campus bounded by Interstate 85, Highway 101, and the plant’s Main Visitor’s Entrance. Perkins+Will working in conjunction with the BMW team, several development scenarios for the location of the new Central Office Complex on this site were studied, with the final consensus Master Plan reflected in this overview. The final Master Plan makes accommodation for up to four phases of growth, supporting primarily office use. Traffic and civil engineering studies were undertaken to confirm that no additional significant traffic, stormwater, or utilities modifications would need to be provided to support an initial Phase One building project. To accommodate BMW’s immediate growth need, a Phase One implementation of this Master Plan is required that will accommodate approximately 300 employees in a new office building in the range of 50,000 – 65,000 gross square feet.

KAUST SCIENCE TOWN VISION PLAN JEDDAH, SAUDI ARABIA


Our Science Town concept has shifted the paradigm for the design of research centers, which are critical building blocks for tomorrow’s global economy. To attract and retain world-class projects and talent, the research parks of the future must offer an attractive setting to live, work, linger and collaborate. Rather than the traditional research park model, in which big box facilities are buffered by parking lots and greenspace, we envisioned the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) Science Town as a sustainable, urban community. This master plan creates a research hub that integrates science, business and academics into a unified city with housing and amenities. The plan will guide the creation of a complete city growing from unimproved land, including all construction and urban systems. Among the plan’s recommendations are four principle elements that serve as a framework for all other recommendations: a gridded street pattern, intra-block connectivity, a shaded pedestrian spine, and mixeduse development program distributed throughout the site.

COLLEGE OF COASTAL GEORGIA SITE DESIGN BRUNSWICK, GEORGIA


To establish a strong campus framework, we created a traditional quad with a series of outdoor gathering spaces. Founded in 1961, the College of Coastal Georgia is located on 193 acres in the coastal city of Brunswick, Georgia. From its current semester enrollment peak of over 3,000 students, the College plans academic and infrastructure improvements to accommodate some 10,000 students in the future. Repositioning the campus to take advantage of existing site features, our team used this opportunity to help develop a flexible framework for future campus growth. The site design is centered on a campus green that replaced an existing parking lot and a series of entry plazas that anchor the lawn. The plazas provide much needed outdoor activity space for campus events, informal dining, studying, and social interaction. Through the use of native vegetation and preservation of existing site features, Perkins+Will was able to create a beautiful and sustainable landscape that speaks to the unique character of this coastal Georgia town.

COFCO RESEARCH + INNOVATION CAMPUS BEIJING, CHINA

Truly a campus that brings brand values from the inside out, this site balances nature and culture to demonstrate the power of innovation. The COFCO Research and Innovation Campus in Beijing is an iconic complex that integrates research facilities, offices, plazas, gardens, agricultural fields, activity spaces, and a museum of food and culture. The main goal of the landscape design is to reflect COFCO’s brand values through “nature” and “culture.” These key concepts are balanced in various forms to create spaces that are activated by employees and visitors to the site. Nature, and more specifically agriculture, is the foundation of COFCO’s products, so food crops will be artfully celebrated in the main central greenspace. The space transforms throughout the seasons with flowering trees including peach (spring), mimosa (summer) and pecan (fall). Maple trees that line the arcing path through the central green space show off fall color while large evergreen trees block winter winds at the northeast corner of the campus. Culture is represented by a series of public spaces designed for collaboration and social gathering. The focus point is the welcome plaza in front of the museum shaped by a dramatic reflecting pool. Other spaces include courtyards and gardens for researchers to share ideas and provide opportunities for community outreach and interaction. Collected stormwater is connected by a linear rain garden which runs throughout the site. The filtrated clean water will be the major water resource for the reflecting pool — one of many public demonstrations of green innovation.

Engagement with the outdoors is a critical part of this hospice’s stress-relieving mission, elevating the role of landscape architecture from background amenity to a key component in the healing environment. Gardens for rest and reflection, spaces for gathering or solitude—all within a peaceful setting where built and natural palettes meet like fingers intertwined. Located on small wooded knoll surrounded on two sides by wetlands, the Willson Hospice site is designed to preserve as much of the campus as possible while capitalizing on its value through a diverse network of trails and boardwalks. Gardens and architectural pods are woven together to provide the best inside and outside experience. The approach to the hospice is through a winding wooded drive that opens to reveal a Healing Garden filled with medicinal plants as the forefront to the architecture. To the north, a park-like space opens up with walking paths and informal seating. To the south, native grasses wind through a series of paths, seat walls, terraces and garden spaces. The most significant garden is centered on the chapel pod. A specimen Ginko tree provides the focus from the Chapel Garden and beyond.

KING SAUD BIN ABDULAZIZ UNIVERSITY FOR HEALTH SCIENCES (KSAU) RIYADH – AL HASA, SAUDI ARABIA

Balancing a harsh desert climate with the university’s need for comfortable, collaborative, outdoor spaces. The King Saud Bin Abdulaziz University for Health Sciences is a large-scale, multidisciplinary project on two sites in Saudi Arabia. Our team was tasked with landscape design and coordinating numerous district plans, design teams, and building programs into a seamlessly unified research universiy and hospital campus. Drawing inspiration from a small wadi, or stream channel, that crosses the Riyadh site, we established two green spines as a central organizing feature. One axis was developed into a pedestrian promenade, linking student and faculty housing to the academic core; the second axis defines a sequence of movements between academic and hospital districts. A series of gardens are overlaid on these spines, culminating with a great plaza at the center of the campus. The central plaza at the Riyadh was designed as formal gathering space for the university, a place for convocation and graduation. It is surrounded by a grove of date palm trees, which provide shady spaces for outdoor dining and informal meeting. The plaza’s paving design, derived from Islamic geometric patterns, holds a crescent shaped water feature oriented toward Mecca. A parallel strategy—locating a public space at the center of the campus— was implemented in Al Hasa. Here, an informal gathering place is shaded by a trellis superstructure, providing contained privacy for small groups within the larger university.

PIEDMONT NEWNAN HOSPITAL NEWNAN, GEORGIA

A central green “spine” orients visitors while enhancing the patient and staff experience.

Known for housing the Red Cross during the Civil War, the City of Newnan, Georgia possesses a rich history of medical care and southern hospitality. Piedmont Newnan Hospital continues this tradition with a new 362,000-square foot facility. The site is designed to improve patient access, ease wayfinding, and accommodate future growth with a flexible framework. Situated on a picturesque 105-acre site, the facility is surrounded by mature trees, trails and forests. A green promenade or “spine” extends from the parking area through the lobby and beyond. Visible from all public pathways and waiting areas, this central greenspace orients visitors and facilitates wayfinding throughout the site. Divided into three thematic sections, the spine reflects the story of the site. The first segment, the “past,” celebrates historic Newnan, while a pedestrian plaza/drop off area and a garden overlook represent the “present.” Continuing the theme, an expansive lawn, wildflower fields, and paths into the woods symbolize “future” growth and potential expansion. Sustainable strategies for water reuse and conservation reduce future operating costs and the project’s overall impact. At the same time, the visual and physical connections to nature fundamentally enhance the patient and staff experience and create a healthier work environment. The result is a highly functional and thoughtful landscape.

SITE DESIGN

DUKE MEDICAL PAVILLION PLAZA DURHAM, NORTH CAROLINA

This elegant space connects the three surrounding buildings and provides opportunities for gathering and respite beyond the hospital walls. At the heart of the Duke University Medical Center, the Duke Medicine Pavilion welcomes patients and visitors with a new elevated plaza. The entire site is designed to create a calming experience through simplicity of forms and color selection. The focal point of the space is a specimen Japanese Maple tree that sits on one side of an elliptical precast wall. Within the ellipse, an alternative gathering space invites informal meetings and outdoor dining. Three rows of giant bamboo planters accentuate the shape of the space and reflect the verticality of the buildings. On the south end of the plaza, a canopy pitches water onto a special band in the plaza surface which allows for infiltration to the drainage system. The plaza strategically conceals all mechanical equipment underneath it, including several large emergency generators, and creates instead a beautiful, valuable space for all to enjoy. This project also includes an elevated garden as part of a waiting area on the third floor of the hospital.
