Healing through nature
An enclosed space acts as a sensory garden which is surrounded by medical services. Sensory gardens are designed to stimulate a multitude of senses and facilitate the mental and physical recovery of those that use it..
Multiple experience created by landscape and resting areas provide ‘pausing stations’ . Shaded garden formed a sanctuary for the patient to rest post therapy.
Soft and hard landscaping is a very strong element that holds the whole development together. It is intended that the greenery and ‘ spiritual therapy’ as part of the healing process.
Buildings are clustered according to principle function; and each cluster is intimately connected via the ‘primary spine’ .The buildings are placed sensitively on existing topography; maintaining & enhancing wherever possible
.Great emphasize on ‘green design’ such as orientation, maximize natural lighting and ventilation, creation of ‘wind corridor’, low e-glass, fixed and movable shading panels
A conscious move from hospital outlook into a more relax environment; again to expedite the healing process.

There is no proper disabled center in Bangladesh it is still absent in our country especially in Chittagong, Bangladesh. Medical science has invented innumerous treatment methods, including therapeutic methods, recovery through nature, recovery through human interaction. I think, as an architect, I have a responsibly and the capability to address these problems through designing a niche which will provide extensive facilities to the disabled.
