Student Awards Jury Comments
Saint Joseph’s Health and Retirement Center, located in
Ojai California, is an existing senior care campus that provides
skilled nursing, assisted living, independent living, and chapel
and conferencing functions. It is comprised of 11 one-story buildings
of varying age. The buildings are set among formal gardens, oak
tees, and orange orchards, which surround the property.
This project designed healing gardens as a part of the remodeled
design of the campus.
