Restorative Garden Room – Healing in Every Corner

Who doesn’t enjoy a leisurely forest stroll? It’s a therapeutic experience. Also, studies suggest that time spent in nature significantly enhances both mental and physical well-being. Reflecting this, London-based McMullan Studio has designed a ‘restorative’ garden room that is a testament to the profound connection between human well-being and the natural world.

It’s a show garden room created for Horatio’s Garden at the 2023 RHS Chelsea Flower Show. Horatio’s Garden is a charity dedicated to creating sustainable and accessible gardens for NHS spinal centers. This wheelchair accessible garden room is a beautiful, immersive, and restorative sanctuary meant to show the hope and positive impact that having a Horatio’s Garden can bring to those coping with a severe spinal injury.

Restorative Elements of The Garden Room

The garden room has been thoughtfully designed to provide an immersive experience of the visual, auditory, and olfactory delights of the garden. Patients get access to a space that serves as a comforting haven, offering both physical protection and emotional solace, allowing them to spend time with their families, fostering moments of laughter and tears without ever feeling isolated.

The garden room, which is made of timber, boasts a reciprocal roof design that addresses the challenge of monotony faced by patients confined to hospital ward ceilings, especially those with spinal injuries who may have limited mobility. It’s nest-like design is inspired from various traditional cultures and contributes to its uniqueness.

Furthermore, it has been constructed using environmentally friendly and health-conscious materials. This includes natural sheep wool insulation and formaldehyde-free plywood, showcasing McMullan’s commitment to sustainability and well-being.

The studio dedicated considerable time to engage with the Horatio’s Garden community, including patients, their families, NHS personnel, and volunteers. This effort was aimed at comprehending the diverse needs and aspirations of those who benefit from Horatio’s Garden. The design ensures a sense of connection to both the natural landscape and the communal atmosphere of the garden.

Restorative Garden Room - Healing in Every Corner

The Show Garden will become the heart of a new, permanent area at the Princess Spinal Injuries Centre in Sheffield, set to open in 2024. This lasting space will bring ongoing benefits to patients, families, and NHS staff, offering transformative effects and healing for years to come.

“The Show Garden will later form the nucleus of a new, permanent space for Horatio’s Garden at the Princess Spinal Injuries Centre in Sheffield – opening in 2024, which will benefit thousands of patients, relatives and NHS staff for years to come,” McMullan said.

The creation of restorative spaces takes on a profound significance. The Horatio’s Garden Show Garden Room, with its carefully curated elements, and surrounded by lush, vibrant nature will act as a place of hope and healing for patients as it holds the power to rejuvenate both body and spirit.

Furthermore, since it has been built with sustainable materials, it embodies a commitment to the well-being of the planet. Its incorporation of environmentally conscious materials and practices speaks to the harmonious relationship between human health and ecological vitality.
