A multi level structure houses a hot tub utilised for therapeutic treatment , different levels of decking are set against the backdrop of trees, with the top level giving a feeling being amongst the tree canopy. The pathway to the building takes several turns finally the route to therapy is over stepping stones set within a rill.
The design is to represent the work carried out by the Charity HighGround, who provide Horticultural Therapy with the framework of the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre at Stanford Hall. As you enter the garden the path takes several turns to represent the difficult route taken to get to the help given by the charity. Once you have made the journey and arrive at the main building you begin treatment in the hot tub steps, not ramps, then must be conquered to begin recovery on the first deck before you reach the highest level where you can relax in the meadow, the surrounding tree canopy aids the relaxation.
