New Project: Princess Margaret Cancer Centre Healing Garden
Posted December 18, 2013
Janet Rosenberg & Studio is pleased to announce that we have been selected, through a multi stage process, to implement our design for the 14th Floor Healing Garden at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, Toronto. The intent of the exterior courtyard is to provide patients fighting cancer, their family members, and the dedicated staff with an uplifting and inspiring garden that references nature, but is comprised entirely of artificial materials.
The Studio’s design takes its inspiration from the strong geometry of formal boxwood parterres and incorporates the artistry of hand blown glass flowers. A donation strategy will allow the Hospital to ‘grow’ this intricate and textural glass perennial garden over time. Decorative panels on the vertical walls bring volume to the garden and catch the natural light. The result is a stylized garden rich in colour and texture that is inspired by natural forms.
