The Malvern Family Resource Centre is a new facility that consolidates five current locations into one building. Their mandate is to serve the children, youth and families of the Malvern area. The landscape design needed to address substantial grade changes and provide an outdoor amenity area while highlighting entrances with seating and bike parking.

The proposed outdoor amenity space had to allow for an accessible route to a gathering area that could accommodate neighbourhood events as well as function more intimately for a seniors game of checkers or a family lunch. We proposed a circular centre hub with a linear central trellis encircled by trees providing shaded group and bench seating.
