CDF was responsible for the design of an integrated landscape and rainwater system for Lutheran General's new 382,623-square-foot 12 story patient tower. The landscape enhances the healing quality of accessible garden spaces while retaining and treating rainwater on-site.
In addition to green building and site objectives within the specified project budget, one of the goals CDF is helping to advance is to provide a peaceful respite for staff, patients, and visitors. Site elements include ornamental rain gardens adjacent to the main entrance drive, and a cascading water runnel that leads to a public sculpture garden.
The design encourages public accessibility to ornamental and functional rainwater elements that are both beautiful and educational. Materials deployed include extensive and semi-intensive green roofs, rain gardens, rain chains, permeable pavement and infiltration features.
