Working for Christiana Care Health System, the largest healthcare provider in Delaware, for over a decade, RAS has designed a wide range of public gardens at their main campus in Newark. The projects included an entrance garden, connecting the parking garage to the hospital’s main entrance and a collection of courtyard gardens for staff members to use during their work breaks. At the Helen F. Graham Cancer Center, RAS designed the landscape grounds with the goal of integrating spaces for patients, staff, and family members. The series of meditative environments provided secluded terraces overlooking a large pond and decorative fountains that mask surrounding sounds while adding an important restorative dimension. Paths and a labyrinth along with sweeping plantings surround the architecture while increasing a sense of intimacy and place, both from outside and within the building.
