The project takes a decentralized approach to program planning, allowing the natural landscape and topography to shape the architectural response. Trauma Informed Design principles guide the planning and building design, considering aspects such as peace of mind, safety, hope, joy, and connection. The design aims to create spaces and buildings that are not only environmentally friendly but also promote well-being for the veterans. The landscaping strategy includes preserving significant acreage as open space/park, restoring native vegetation to enhance water quality and wildlife habitat, and creating a looped trail system for visitors to explore the creek, ponds, and open space. A designated "healing garden" provides a special destination within the larger park, inviting visitors to slow down and appreciate nature.
