About

The Christ Hospital landscape master plan is designed to create a warm and inviting atmosphere for patients, visitors, and staff. Reflecting the cultural personality of Cincinnati and the rich historical signature of the Mt. Auburn neighborhood, the landscape respects and pays homage to the past while celebrating the future.

A series of landscaped courts dedicated to a wide array of departments and users provides outlets for gathering, waiting, reflecting, and healing. Implementing cutting-edge sustainability practices, an optimized campus experience, and enhanced accessibility and circulation all contribute to the ultimate success of the design. By encouraging expansion and responsible growth, the landscape master plan creates a benchmark for the healthcare experience.
