University of Bath - Final year project
Tutors: Daniel Wong, Martin Gledhill
The present building is designed to act as an intermediate step between a drug rehabilitation center and society. The powerful presence of nature on this site helps the healing process of people in need of self-rediscovery.
The calming properties of water and the natural aesthetics of the plants are combined with the natural materials used in this building; it becomes a welcoming environment urging its habitants not only to reflect but also to actively engage in activities and take responsibilities.
This building is about using simple but well linked geometries in an effort to help its users understand better their environment. It is about understanding, respecting and connecting with nature forming the place that people use in order to change their state of mind.
