• Fort Belvoir Community Hospital / FT. BELVOIR, VA

US Department of Defense (DoD)

Lee and Associates are working with a multidisciplinary team to provide comprehensive landscape architecture services for this world-class military and healing institution, dedicated to the wounded warriors returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. Six landscaped courtyards are shaped from the evidence based building design recalling nature’s healing, forming a unifying effect within the greater space; but not without characterizing each courtyard with unique elements, and establishing a critical way-finding system throughout the hospital. Combined influence of stormwater mitigation tools, extensive green roofs, and landscape rooted in the regions’ ecosystems becomes a supportive power for people who spend their lives in this hospital.
