PMA Landscape Architects Ltd.

Health Care


PMA has designed the landscape spaces for numerous Hospitals, Long-Term Care Residences and other healthcare facilities. These projects typically involve the landscape and environmental designs surrounding the buildings, streetscape, support towards passive stormwater management, plantings, and specialty courtyard or terrace spaces. PMA has designed terraces for treatment of patients with Autism Spectrum Disorder, mental health, and physical challenges. Terraces towards long-term care residences include functions for respite, outdoor dining, gardening activities, exercise and socializing.


Our overall approach to site design for the healthcare facilities are founded on the following overarching goals:

• creating an inherent experience of positivity, comfort and safety

• sustainability and biophilic design

• clarity of circulation and intuitive wayfinding

• connectivity and integration into the neighbourhood and community
