(Competition : Team Collaboration)

The fast pace of 21st century has led to a very distorted work-leisure balance among urban settlers. This has caused numerous lifestyle-related mental and physical issues like stress, depression and other chronic ailments.

 

This has shifted the focus on wellness and its importance in leading a happy and fulfilling life. We are getting aware and more conscious of the fact that wellness is more than the absence of disease and is a careful holistic balance of the mind, body and spirit. The dialogue has been initiated and we can see an upsurge in the wellness tourism sector, as people demand for a more accessible and wholesome experience.

The transition between the natural-artificial, interior-exterior should be fluid and seamless to the extent that it becomes one continuous envelope. The combinations of light and shade, open and enclosed spaces should create sensuous and restorative experience.
