Owensboro, KY: A women’s cancer center greenroof, featuring an interior courtyard with overlooking patient rooms.
Studies are beginning to show what people have always known intuitively—that access to nature can promote healing and well-being. The goal of this project was to create a beautiful, private area for women in recovery from cancer. We developed specialized soil mounds to allow for a better planting palette, which included perennials for added color. In the non-vegetative section, we included Mexican beach pebbles and Ipe (Brazilian hardwood) decking for a gorgeous fusion of nature and structure. The result is a tranquil retreat for patients to enjoy.
