Enlighten Space is a hybrid mental healthcare facility that aims to improve an individual’s spirituality and well being. The project integrates within the future development of Docklands in Melbourne to create a community healthcare space and in addition providing facilities accessible to the public. The proposed interventions to the existing structure of Shed 4 performs a multi-functional role blurring the threshold between interior and exterior. It houses therapeutic spaces for individuals and groups dispersed throughout the space. A series of butterfly enclosures are proposed abstractly referencing ‘The Butterfly Effect'.
Enlighten Space aims to reflect a hopeful environment to support those in a difficult place.
