DETAILS

LocationFrisco, Texas, United States
ClientBaylor Scott and White, HKS
Size40 Acres

Blending current medical practice with the cutting-edge care of the future, Baylor Scott and White’s new Frisco hospital campus is a porous and walkable complex, welcoming the surrounding community to enjoy its open space amenities. A central green space, equipped with shading features, functions as the heart of the campus. Users are invited to utilize the public spaces to enjoy outdoor gatherings, dining, and play. The phasing plan transforms 10.5 acres of former farmland into a temporary prairie, creating a network of miles of walking trails around the campus for wildflower viewing.

On the campus, the Star’s playground captivates various age groups and promotes an engaging, healthy atmosphere. Drawing inspiration from the Milky Way galaxy, the playground features a series of interactive planet climbers and steppers arranged to resemble their positions in space. The design team prioritized education, inclusivity, and sustainable materials in the creation of this awe-inspiring playground.
