We are excited to announce that we’re a Fast Company Innovation by Design Award winner! The program highlights designers and businesses who are solving the problems of today and tomorrow. Our project, Boston Children’s Hospital Healing Gardens, was named as a finalist in the health category.
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 and 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. Extra care was taken in the design to accommodate children who are immuno-compromised and those with disabilities.
