Tumanako: A wellness Centre for Mental Health Care


Tumanako is a centre designed to promote wellness for the mentally ill. This design has been carefully crafted as a holistic and sustainable, nurturing and inclusive place inspired by nature. Patients, staff and visitors are immersed into nature and daylight to create a stress- free, healing and caring place. The Tumanako Hub, being the central point of my design and the facility is accommodating to all, leaving people feeling relaxed and cared for.

As a Spatial Designer I enjoy creating experiences that enhance a persons physical, mental and emotional well-being through the connection of the outside environment. Specifically through healing architecture. Tumanako provides and place where people can come and feel safe, a place where they can rejuvenate and heal.
