Flourish is a Women’s Holistic Hormone center focusing on healing imbalances through natural remedies. Here, women partake in their journey, from extracting herbs to creating solutions rather than being handed a prescription. The center uses biophilic design elements and the surrounding topography to blur the lines and reconnect women and nature. Topography lines envelop the exterior and then infiltrate the interior to create different spaces, subfloors, and stacked gardens. Lastly, the skylights work to provide the gardens with the necessary light in addition to the large skylights with hanging gardens to highlight community healing spaces for gathering. Flourish empowers women to take autonomy over their healing journey and reconnect to nature for health.
