UCI Medical Center

  • Client UCI Regents

Orange, CA

LCI was selected as the Landscape Architect by the design/build team to participate in the design of the landscape and environmental components associated with the replacement hospital. Extensive collaboration and coordination was required to meet UCI, Division of the State Architect, Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development, and County of Orange requirements.

Key project areas included:

  • Connector between facilities
  • Main Plaza
  • Porte cochere
  • Dining area with trellis
  • Campus garden

Envisioned as a series of rooms along a meandering pathway, the campus garden speaks to a quiet ambience, allowing for private conversations or contemplation by patients, hospital staff, and visitors. Design features were implemented as phased alternatives and included:

  • Palm grove
  • Olive garden
  • Contemplative water feature
  • Historical garden
  • Walk of care
