Rapid advancements in healthcare practices have had dramatic impact on the importance of facilities and environments. The growing focus on patient outcomes and evidence-based design translates directly to an increased emphasis on the quality of the physical environments and open space amenities of healthcare campuses. DTLS has a wide range of experience in healthcare facility design, including site master plans, low impact development, streetscapes, parking environments, plazas, and therapeutic garden spaces.
On Phase 1 of Barnes Jewish Hospital North and St. Louis Children’s Hospital, DTLS was responsible for the redesign of the public realm, transforming and updating the streetscape to accommodate the new facilities and encourage a vibrant pedestrian space that is responsive to its environmental context. Porous pavers allow infiltration of stormwater, while continuous plant trenches utilize engineered soils promote root growth for a healthy landscape. The plant palette is comprised of native species or adaptive cultivars, celebrating Missouri’s indigenous plant communities. The goal is to create a biophillic landscape that comforts by connecting patients, staff and the general public to nature.
