Silver Hill Hospital
Richard Turlington Architects became the sole architect and interior designer for Silver Hill Hospital in 2005, charged with the lofty task of restructuring the entire institution. Since the hospital was founded in 1931, it has acquired a collection of houses that serve as its treatment centers and administrative buildings. Located in a bucolic residential neighborhood in New Canaan, Connecticut, the 42-acre campus features historic stone bridges, fieldstone walls, babbling brooks, wetlands, and beautiful trees that predate the hospital. This project is ongoing and iterative. So far, the alterations have included:
• Renovating the estate’s many buildings
• Redesigning exterior spaces with assistance from landscape architects and civil engineers
• Expanding parking areas
Although masterplanning is a standard conceptual approach, this project came with unique responsibilities. Our team has consistently utilized a holistic design approach to support this cohesive institution that provides world-renowned patient care.
We know every detail of a space impacts the residents’ experiences, so our focus on wellness and calm influences our selection of colors, textures, floorplans, and even smells. Because we care so deeply about healthcare design, we are proud to be a thread in the fabric of the Silver Hill story.
