This garden was located in the confluence of hospital entrance, parking and radiation therapy patient waiting room. Emphasis was on providing a therapy garden by isolating it from views and distractions of parking and road using hedges, trees, pool, fountain and the sculpture “Moment” by Gordon Gund. This design successfully invites people to rest and visit amid plants, water and light.
These gardens continue Princeton Hospital's goal to connect patients and employees with their outdoor environment and promote healing. Utilizing current research, spaces were designed to promote human interaction and immersion with nature through water, seating, shade, flower and fauna.
Existing faculty housing of the 1950's within a mature forest canopy was renovated to a new LEED Gold multifamily garden community complex for Princeton faculty. The site design integrated the new community into an existing historic neighborhood linking the Stanworth residents to the Princeton campus through pedestrian/bicycle links and connection to adjacent YMCA/YWCA facilities. Utilizing existing building foundations, the architects, Torti Gallus + Partners minimized site disturbance and maximized tree preservation. Up to 60% of viable trees were preserved enhanced with over 500 next generation trees while providing community greens, play areas, picnic pavilions and community walking paths under mature tree canopy.
