Mercy Medical Center
As part of a major expansion of this downtown Baltimore hospital, a new 18-story tower will provide state-of-the-art operating facilities, private in-patient rooms among other key programs and services. Mahan Rykiel Associates was responsible for the design of three rooftop gardens and all street level improvements.
Each garden has distinct design elements tailored to the adjacent hospital functions. The 8th floor Maternity offers a bubbling fountain, commissioned fountain, shady trellis, ample tables and chairs and lush plantings geared to both visitor and patients. The 9th Floor Intensive Care provides quiet secluded seating areas appropriate for small groups of visitors and staff, and the 10th floor offers a viewing garden.
With 10 floors of the tower overlooking the roof gardens, MRA worked closely with the architects and hospital staff to create these important new spaces.
