St Rocco’s Hospice Landscape Design

Therapeutic landscape design

The challenge

The hospice is currently undergoing an ambitious program of expansion. The intention was to work with the staff to develop a design brief and mandate for a useful space that addresses the needs of elderly and infirm patients, their families and visitors.

What we did

Westley Design facilitated an inclusive hospice community consultation and design process leading to an initial design report. This documented process was then evolved into a project design and is currently being used to generate funding. The project aims to create an enriched multi-sensory experience through planting and the introduction of interactive design elements, shelter and comfort opportunities to encourage outdoor use and enjoyment. The ambition is to produce a safe environment suitable for the delivery of a complete and full quality horticultural therapy programme.

The result

The staff of the Hospice has a clear vision of the landscape they require and need and are engaged in developing funding to support this aim.
