Creative Health Services
Creative Health Services planned to build a long term residence in Pottstown, PA for individuals diagnosed with mental illness.
The overall site design and goal was to include an outdoor environment for patient access which would promote a sense of well-being and also a welcoming spot to relax with family and friends. By incorporating their vision, we created a space to improve the quality of life for the residents and secondarily, contribute to staff retention.

A 300 ft. stone veneer sitting wall encloses the outdoor space and provides a boundary for the surrounding parking lot. The focus of the site is the large patio and the oversized walkway welcoming individuals to the sitting area. A pergola was constructed to add dramatic height to the space giving it a room-like effect.
The healing effects of earth, water and fire were also included with the installation of a gas-burning fireplace with water trickling down behind the fire feature. A stunning water feature was also installed within hearing distance.
Landscaping, dry creek beds, street trees and natural stone borders additionally define the site.
