• Armed Forces Retirement Home: New Commons + Health Care Center / WASHINGTON, DC

Medical + Healthcare

Development of the New Commons & Health Care Center for the Armed Forces Retirement was a key step in the Home’s modernization plan to continue providing affordable, state of the art care to retired service men and women. The landscape site plan preserves the historic character of the site and the unique vistas of Washington from the landmark Lincoln Cottage. Sustainably designed healing gardens for the residents provide important therapeutic and social space and include courtyards, roof gardens, and a labyrinth meditation garden.
