Design for reintegration into the community

A thoughtfully designed place for self-discovery, support, and treatment can be the difference between mental pain and mental health. Our design approach for behavioral health environments balances a sense of community with the need for privacy and security. Our spaces are open, embracing, safe, and secure, and they encourage a positive, uplifting sense of purpose and direction.

I enjoy proactively solving technical problems and coordinating talented technical professionals to develop projects.

Extensive gardens soften the urban site and create outdoor therapy space at grade and within secure terraces on upper levels. Read More
