Ann B. Barshinger Cancer Institute at Lancaster General Health, Lancaster, Pa.

The healing garden occupies the central courtyard of the Ann B. Barshinger Cancer Institute at Lancaster General Health and creates a variety of spaces for quiet meditation while maintaining ADA accessibility. A glass curtain wall surrounds the garden and blurs the line between interior and exterior spaces, while views out through the building create a connection with the larger landscape beyond. Throughout the landscape, water is used as an element of continuity and as a demonstration of sustainability.

The Elevated Walk at Chanticleer, Wayne, Pa.

The Elevated Walk at Chanticleer creates accessible path that meanders down over 30 feet of vertical elevation, featuring places to stop, sit, and enjoy the view. By using a porous material, the design team avoided expensive systems to manage storm water run-off, and by elevating the walkway, its footings have minimalized the impact on the hillside and the existing woodland. In addition to improving the woodland experience, the old lawn has been replaced with a warm-season meadow garden and groves of Aspen trees

The Meadow Garden at Longwood Gardens, Kennett Square, Pa.

The Meadow Garden, an 86-acre garden at Longwood Gardens, opened to the public in June of 2014. The design enhances and restores a vast meadow, a landscape with its own history, ecologies, and wildlife habitats. Paths, bridges, and rustic pavilions were designed to allow guests to experience different habitats and dynamic views. By its very design the Meadow Garden is temporal, ever-changing, and constantly evolving while reflecting "the soul of the native landscape."

Main Line Home Garden, Wayne, Pa.

Rain gardens capture and cleanse runoff from the home and paved areas and are integrated into a larger meadow in the front yard. This meadow provides a lush, layered foreground that buffers the building from the road. Dense plantings and outbuilding structures such as the pergola create a sense of enclosure and provide privacy from nearby neighboring homes.
