A Renaissance Garden in San Quirico D’orcia

Bellevue Hospital Healing Garden

New York, NY

The Bellevue Hospital healing garden seeks to stimulate all of the human senses that are often undernourished in the hospital environment. The goals in the reconstruction of the park were to create a garden environment that will connect all of the open space areas of the hospital campus and serve the hospital community as a place for mental healing and comfort. McCobb redesigned the entrance with new paths and custom benches to walk and sit while absorbing the "healing" benefits of the colorful plantings in the central garden.
