Quinn is providing complete landscape architectural services for this 3-storey affordable rental housing building for seniors that provides 60 fully barrier-free units within a universally accessible design and includes amenities for residents and other community support groups. The landscape design features a courtyard framed by a grove of sumac and birches. The courtyard offers sheltered seating spaces, a BBQ area, and a series of raised planters for gardening activities.
Attractive plantings and landscape features buffer the building from the street, and a small plaza connects the site to the surrounding neighborhood. The plaza is edged with a series of terraced gardens with seat walls to create a comfortable place of respite. The planting design features a large palette of native and robust species, creating a landscape with year-round interest and appeal.
