Project: Healthcare

IU Health Hospice House

This project included the preparation of a landscape design and subsequent construction documentation to replace and renew the existing landscape. The simple design incorporates a combination of native perennials, ornamental grasses, and other low maintenance plant materials.  Plantings were purposely placed framing views from patient rooms.  A rain garden for stormwater collection was renovated incorporating new water tolerant plantings and soil increasing permeability.

Franciscan Health

Landstory was responsible for preparing a conceptual design for new 130 room state-of-the art, full-service hospital located in Crown Point Indiana.

Overall design included a chapel garden, dining courtyard and outdoor seating areas in garden settings consisting of a combination of native plantings and prairie grasses harkening back to the pure native landscape that once existed in this region.   Excess excavation on site allowed for the creation of mounding, in support of the naturalized character while screening  from the adjacent interstate, surrounding roadways and parking lots.

Vast communities of native grasses, forbs and wildflowers will inhabit the open areas and remaining undeveloped property, benefitting the environment while reducing operational and maintenance costs.
