Joseph Brant Hospital

Burlington, Ontario


Seferian Design Group was retained by the Joseph Brant Hospital to complete a transformation of the hospital’s central courtyard which lacked a sense of community and place. The hospital courtyard was re-designed to allow terminal and long-term residents of the hospital use of the space year round. Seferian Design Group carried this project from concept through to implementation. It provided an opportunity to mentor students of the Humber College Landscape Design program. Haig Seferian worked closely with the President of Humber College and the college instructors to give students hands-on experience implementing the firm’s integrated and innovative design.
