We love being in nature and it is something that we are missing while living in the city. We love being in nature while we feel we are under control. On the other hand being lost in nature is such a horror for all of us.
Imagine feeling vulnerable, helpless and lost on the ground in a dense forest. Maybe the idea of building a tree house since childhood soothes our minds, keeping us safe in nature. We feel protected above the wild in a safe haven and our vision expands while we can relocate ourselves.
The tree house hospital is an attempt to make the mental health patients feel safe and home by lifting the hospital’s main program above the densely populated pine grove. The roof gardens for the patient rooms resemble the hanging gardens of Babylon, blending the building with the pine grove, giving the patients the expanse view, floating them above the clouds of trees and easing their treatment.
