Continuing on the success of the Parkview Cancer Institute, Parkview Health System selected JPR to lead the site design efforts for the development of the Contemplative Garden space.
Parkview Health wanted to provide a garden space that allowed patients, family members, and workers an opportunity for quiet contemplation and stress release. Being located outside of the Cancer Institute, the challenge of this space was to avoid a somber feeling, but rather invoke thoughts of encouragement and support on one’s journey to recovery.
• Water fountain
• Seatwall & overhead trellis
• Gathering space
• Custom inlaid words of encouragement in pavement
