Long Term Care Facilities

Lynn Valley Care Centre, North Vancouver BC 

For a private, long-term care facility this development constituted a major extension to a pre-existing care home.  Landscape features included relocation of a heritage granite wall to allow for road widening, retention of unusual heritage trees, a west-facing courtyard with a therapeutic walking loop and seating, an entry turn-around with a water feature, a south-facing 2nd floor courtyard and a 6th floor roof garden.  Design for accessibility by wheelchair users and residents with cognitive impairment was a priority.
