sanctuaries of healing: towards and architecture of well-being and care

This thesis seeks to explore the use of biophilic design theories and principles in the creation of a cancer support facility on the grounds of the Red Cross Children’s hospital in Rondebosch, Cape Town. Taking precedents from the Maggie centres in the UK, this project aims to be a paediatric nature-filled, hope inspiring therapeutic environment, which enriches the landscape of healthcare space in Cape Town through a beautiful, vibrant and restorative space on an otherwise clinical site.
