Therapeutic Gardens

Tranquility Garden at St. Vincent’s Hospital, Langara, Vancouver BC

Installation of a new neuropsychiatric unit which absorbed an existing water garden previously designed by PD Group, prompted the client, Providence Healthcare, to commission a second water garden for this long-term care facility.  The new feature incorporates a split-level pond with cascade between.  Using new earth-shaping and planting as a backdrop, a south-facing, semi-public seating space with trellis structures was created for the use of the facility’s residents, visitors and neighbors.
