Natural Improvement Health Centre

Location: Coolibah Reserve,54 Hannam St, Bardwell Valley NSW 2207, Australia. Size: 36,342m2. Client: Bayside Council. Since the beginning of industrial development, natural resources have been overexploited and have led to a lack of green space. In addition to the sudden outbreaks of pandemics, this has not only worsened the relationship between man and nature but also the increasing urbanisation has had a negative impact on the psychological and physical health of the inhabitants, leading to an increased demand for specific green spaces. Biophilia, a concept developed by Wilson (1984), is a concept that has been recognised by the scientific and design communities for decades, and by the public intuitively for centuries. The project will help with existing problems at the site and focus on the use of water elements in the site to help create a biophilic, ecological and welcoming park, and to help people gradually regain their physical and mental health in the park, strengthening the relationship between humans and nature. Biophilic design in landscape garden architecture not only meets the physical and spiritual needs of people and promotes their healthy development, but also provides habitat and living space for other animals and plants, which has a positive effect on the sustainable development of the ecological environment. A mutually beneficial design for people and the environment is conducive to public health.
