This dissertation investigates the need for a change in popular perception of what an institutional building should and could look and feel like.
This is achieved through the exploration of ways to create a therapeutic environment that houses a sub-acute facility which provides operational after care for patients discharged from Louis Pasteur Private Hospital in the Pretoria CBD.
As well as providing for certain functional requirements, the architectural exploration aims to enrich and encourage the healing process of patients within the city with a rich mixture of stimulating and therapeutic experiences and qualities.
Through the exploration and incorporation of various theories, these aims are set as an end goal not only throughout the design process, but are also used to guide the technical development and solutions that are used within the finalization of the facility.
With a constant concept of creating a space for healing within the city of Pretoria, a Centre for Healing is created which holds these ideals at the core of its existence.
