The City Sanctuary Experience

How might we create a tranquil space in a crowded urban environment


Our main target audience are city workers, students and tourists. This is an inclusive space which is open to everyone. We intend to use the 5 E's of experience - entice, enter, engage, exit, extend to create the concept. The Sanctuary Garden will be CBD-based & contained, & all season setting with partial covered spaces. It will have green walls & hanging gardens to invite the audience to co-exist with nature. It will be a multiple sensory experience with a sense of enclosure that invokes peace in a busy urban environment, free from distractions, noise, pollution. There will be trees, teahouse, waterfalls/water features, zen chimes, koi fishponds, leaving the visitors feeling relaxed, restored, rejuvenated and ready to jump back into their busy lives.
