LOCATION: Dunedin, Florida
SCOPE: Landscape and Irrigation
MEASE MEMORY CENTER
The project is adjacent to Mease Hospital and is an extension of the extended care facility for Alzheimer patients. As part of the healing and blending with the patient care, we developed internal courtyard gardens with flowering plants. They of course had to be free of thorns and non-toxic in nature, but still evoke a sense of awakening for the patients. The project is situated in the middle of a residential neighborhood so it needed to blend with the existing homes and streetscape. The exterior of the project was designed to blend into the Live Oak canopy of the City of Dunedin. We have numerous areas in full shade and street trees that were added to build back the character of the neighbor.
