Terrace View

A Look at the New West Park

Stunning views can be added to the distinguishing list of features for West Park’s new hospital. 

With the design objective to foster connections to nature and beauty, terraces were purposefully built into the architectural plans. There will be a terrace on every floor in the inpatient block that will face the west-end of the city and overlook the extensively landscaped West Lawn, consisting of walking trails, gardens and courtyards, and amphitheatre below. 

Providing easy access to the outdoors was another motivation since many patients are unable to travel to the main floor and outside easily or independently. The terrace is the perfect solution for patients and staff looking for quick and easy access to fresh air. 

The terraces will be staggered to allow access to sunshine and shade for each of these outdoor spaces. The terraces will also be enclosed by nine feet of glass for safety and without blocking the views. 

Below, get a glimpse of the terrace view from the top floor in the virtual tour with Shelley Ditty, Vice-President of Campus Development and Support Services.
