The new headquarters facility for Visions HealthCare provides a setting for promoting spiritual and emotional health. The design creates a "healing journey" from the moment you enter the site until the moment you leave.

The design utilizes simple, clean, "lines,” a rational “order,” and natural materials to bring a sense of calm to the building, at both interior and exterior.

Natural elements are carried inside the building: light, air, water, and warm, natural materials, such as hardwood and stone. A calming water feature accents the Entry Lobby. Large expanses of glass and operable windows bring natural light and air into the building. Connections to the site are also celebrated with the introduction of a Zen Garden, a contemplative landscape for visitors and employees alike.

The project was honored as the New England Real Estate Journal’s “Project of the Month” in their February, 2013 Green Buildings edition.
