Healthy Outdoor Spaces:
The Prescription for Better Health

Solutions to Promote
Wellness Outdoors

As employees return to offices, students to campuses, and the public to social venues, the need for safe and confidence-inspiring natural spaces that facilitate responsible collaboration, connection, and social interaction is more important than ever. Healthy Outdoor Spaces
is created with this context in mind, drawing on Landscape Forms’ fifty-one years of thought leadership and experience in connecting people with the outdoors to support their health and overall well-being.

Bringing the activities of everyday life outdoors is proving important to the health and well-being of our communities. Upfit is the award-winning adaptive structure system with modern style and endless flexibility that takes the complexity out of designing outdoor spaces that invite people in and meet their everyday needs.
A modular system of posts, beams, roofing, panels, benches and tables, Upfit can be installed in a wide range of applications across vertical markets. It’s fully customizable, and can scale up or down to fit virtually any need or space.
In open or underutilized spaces on corporate, academic, and healthcare campuses, and within public squares and throughout transit areas, Upfit transforms outdoor areas into sought-out destinations that provide power, light, display, surfaces, storage and shelter from the elements—all the things people need to learn, work, dine and relax outdoors.
A unique system of dividers, screens, seating, work and dining surfaces, the new Landscape Forms Backdrop offers users their own defined sense of personal space without completely isolating them from others and from the outdoor environment.
Clearly delineated spaces contribute to a sense of confidence among users to safely engage in the small group conversation and socialization that is key to maintaining a cooperative, interconnected atmosphere throughout the community.
Highly modular, available in a variety of heights, use cases, and configurations with or without power, the new Backdrop is a versatile, elegant way to safely direct traffic throughout outdoor spaces and offer users new productive natural environments while reinforcing a comforting sense of order and enclosure.

Additional internal space dividers facilitate physical distancing among individuals and small groups while offering even more variety and versatility in the configuration of an already highly modular system.

Space Planning Guide
Maintaining a safe distance (approximately 6 feet or 2 meters) from others is critical. A 72-inch planning bubble will create the recommended distances between people.
From pocket parks to public places, there are myriad variables to consider when determining arrangements for site furnishings. To assist designers in this process, we have developed spacing guidelines that combine our years of experience activating outdoor spaces with the emerging community mitigation framework identified by the CDC.

Parc Centre Chair quick Ship Program
Parc Centre Chair Quick Ship Program
In response to the acute need for large quantities of chairs as businesses and institutions move quickly to enact social distancing, Landscape Forms has developed a special “quick ship” program featuring our popular Parc Centre Chair. This steel chair has long been a favorite for its versatility, durability and mobility. Its sled bases are stable on grass, gravel or hard surfaces, it is light enough to be easily moved from place to place, and it’s stackable. We have moved quickly to produce a large inventory of the armless, silver Parc Centre Chair -- the most popular model – to fulfill larger seating orders with special quick shipping to our customers. For inquiries on this program, please contact your Landscape Forms representative or call 800.430.6207.
