Just as a building is designed to be resilient to the elements, a person must also have strength in the face of adversity. When inspirational design and healthcare expertise come together, as they do at the Lutherwood Children’s Mental Health Centre in Waterloo, Ontario, resilience of the human spirit can be achieved.
We undertook a visioning approach to truly understand the needs of our client, their clients, and the broader community before designing a creative solution. The central heart of the new facility is a catalyst for connection and self-discovery—the perfect place for 12- to 17-year-olds to start their journeys toward wellness.
By normalizing the environment and arranging spaces for respite and healing, our integrated team created a safe haven for youth and helped plan a new foundation of optimism for their future.
At Lutherwood, resilience is truly intrinsic.
