Boston Children’s Rooftop Healing Garden
Project Location: Boston, MA
Client: Boston Children's Hospital
As part of the green master plan developed for Boston Children’s Hospital, MYKD is designing a series of healing gardens. This particular rooftop garden is on the eleventh floor of the hospital’s main building. It provides 8,000 square feet of space as a refuge for children being treated at the hospital, their families/visitors, and the staff who care for them. The garden offers sweeping skyline and harbor views, a lush knoll for free play, diverse seating options, and lush plantings. Care was taken in the design to accommodate children who are immuno-compromised and those with disabilities.
