Carter van Dyke and a client introduced the concept of a therapeutic healing garden for St. Mary Medical Center (SMMC) and raised the funds for its implementation. A formerly inaccessible space was transformed into three distinct areas: a Japanese walk, dining terrace, and open lawn, which soon became a major feature within the culture of the hospital, ultimately leading to an award as one of the top 100 hospitals in which to work. Three additional roof gardens are in the design and planning stage. In addition to leading the initiative, CVDA designed all of the healing gardens, developed all construction documentation, provided construction review services, and is currently assisting on the master plan for a major campus expansion.

Olympus America, Inc.
Center Valley, Pa.
Assisting the architect with the master plan and site planning for the new North American headquarters of Olympus Imaging Corporation, CVDA was involved in the design of the project from the beginning and helped to develop the garden themes that rei?,ected the company's Japanese origins while expressing a modern technological theme. Three separate entrances were incorporated: the formal entrance with art forms that feature the transformation of glass in technology, the garden entrance to the park and gardens, and the separate service entrance that buffers the site from the adjacent interstate highway.

Sixteen-acre Estate Upper Makefield, Pa. The master plan and construction documents CDVA developed included a period rose garden, grotto, swimming pool, upper and lower terraces, water rill with greenhouse, azalea garden, crab apple allee, and two separate kitchen vegetable gardens. One of the distinguishing features was the construction of all of the walls, grotto, and water features in a gray colored concrete that was then sand blasted to create an antique limestone appearance.
