dwg. worked closely with the architect to vision the entry, streetscape and multiple green roof terraces for Austin’s new teaching hospital, the Dell Seton Medical Center at The University of Texas.
The project, which is the centerpiece of the new health district in downtown Austin, includes public and staff courtyards as well as an inaccessible green roof canopy, designed to improve views from patient rooms and provide moments of respite within the hospital. The access to outdoor space, within the confines of the hospital, allows patients and employees access to nature, which has proven to reduce stress and enhance the healing process. The project boasts a pedestrian and bike friendly campus and is LEED Gold certified.
