Macdonald Environmental Planning, PC was approached by Partin & Hill Architects to provide Landscape Architectural services for this hospice project in Hillsboro, Oregon. Our design intent was to embrace the natural woodland adjacent to the project area by incorporating native plant species into the site landscaping to imitate a natural environment.
Creating spaces for respite and reflection was a high priority for this project. Patients, family members, and staff will all have an opportunity to take a stroll through the meandering pathway or sit and listen to the trickle of water coming from one of the water features adjacent to one of the outdoor patios.
Other site features include stormwater swales that will help to reduce runoff; a rainwater celebration feature, which will be viewable from the main entrance; a donor wall; and an outdoor labyrinth.
