RAWholistic healing center PROJECT RESEARCH
Healing is not the same as curing. The concept of healing is more about the process of harmonizing the mind,body, and spirit. It is about living in peace with yourself and your surroundings. People can be healed even if they are not cured.
Health Care costs are climbing and non-traditional alternatives are being considered as heathful op-tions. The diseases we face today are related to the environments we've designed. The current designs of our communities, buildings and lifestyles have creaed new health issues. Typically when people focus on personal well being they focus on either phyical or mental health; not the two in tadem.
brain spaces: used to energize & exercise the mind.
body spaces: used to energize & exercise the body.
spiritual spaces: used to interconnect mind & body.
social spaces: used to interconnect people & place.

FITNESS CENTER PERSPECTIVE
Healing gardens can provide relief from psychological distress and create an improved sense of well being. They should "comfort the soul and re-new the spirit." Anti-depressive properties are associated with physical exercise. Positive effects associated with physical exercise can be further
influenced & enhanced with a balanced diet.

Our experiences of interior spaces can be influenced by our own interior environment. Every space we encounter can have an affect on our beliefs, attitudes, memories and well being. RAW will be a space that gives people opportunities to positively impact their mind, body and spirit.

INTRODUCTION:NEXT will be inspired by an ecosystem. Similar to a
co-working space, an ecosystem is a community that connects living things to their physical environment. No matter how big or small an organism is, it's existence is vital to the survival of the ecosystem as a whole. NEXT
understands that each type of worker is essential to innovation and creation. It will supply the appropriate
resources and spaces that both entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs need to cultivate.

Due to its ability to stay cool, OLED lighting will not disturb the taste or age of the wine. An aluminum frame will make the fix-ture lightweight yet durable and FSC certified wood will encourage sustainable harvesting and conservation of
