St. Luke’s Hospital Bannock Corridor Design
Building consensus takes time, particularly when working with a community and a private landowner. In Boise, ID, St. Luke’s Hospital re-envisioned a closed street on their campus as a community connection and therapeutic garden. Toole Design’s team worked closely with stakeholders, over the course of almost two years, listening to them and developing design principles to reflect their values. Today, what used to be an underused plaza within the hospital campus is now an important corridor for people walking and biking, and a therapeutic garden and gathering space for hospital staff and patients.
We have come a long way with this work. Our relationship with the community has been significantly improved. It is such a privilege to work with such a talented group of professionals.Chris RothSenior Vice President & COO, St. Luke's Health System
