This 12-acre residential group home facility for the developmentally disabled located in the Creedmoor Psychiatric Campus was completed in 2009. As part of a multi-disciplinary team, our scope included the design and coordination of the site layout, material selection and planting design of the main administration building, eight residences, internal roadway, parking lots, and central open space park. Walking paths, lighting, seating, an open-air pavilion and active recreational facilities were integrated within these areas.
