This wellness center provides animal (cats) assisted art therapy, which helps patients with depression explore themselves psychologically under the company of cats. The center uses Accoya wood and hemp ropes which are natural and sustainable. The materials construct an environment to help patients relax and heal. The spiral-form spatial layout and vertical structures create adventurous spaces to provide a unique experience for cats and humans. Red, Blue, and light beige are applied to achieve a balance between excitement and relaxation.
