Homewood Health

Homewood Health in Guelph was founded in the late 19th century as a private countryside retreat providing mental health and addiction services. The campus’ original pastoral character remains largely intact despite the addition of new buildings, and changes to programming and circulation patterns.

Since 2010, ERA has worked with Homewood to renew its 47-acre campus with a focus on understanding and celebrating the cultural heritage landscape of the site.

To meet future patient needs, ERA was retained to create a strategy to conserve the historic character of the campus while accommodating new facilities and additional capacity. This work has included the development of a Cultural Heritage Resource Evaluation Report for the overall site. Working with Homewood’s design team and environmental consultants, ERA has helped to identify opportunities to understand historic features of the campus to inform the design of new landscape, circulation, and architectural interventions that complement the core features of the site.
