Eunoia Wellness Centre is wellness center for women and children. The redevelopment of a former redundant site in Sunnyside, Pretoria, promotes the holistic wellbeing of its community by introducing a wellness center that will act as architectural interface promoting a safety climate in the public realm of Pretoria. The vision of this design would be architecture that enables operation, rehabilitation, and connection and inclusion of women in their communities. This project aims to react against the current place of women and children within the public realm and cityscapes within Tshwane that promotes violence and crime against these women and children. This project is developed through theoretical concepts such as Biophilic design and Feminine placemaking. These concepts drives the spatial identity of the Wellness Center, a safe haven for women and children in Tshwane. The design captures the encapsulating safety climate of feminine placemaking within a rigid masculine cityscape.
