The treatment of the external spaces are as important as the internal spaces with a clear synergy between the two elements, it should encourage pedestrian movement , whilst at the same time creating spaces to pause and reflect. This in turn encourages a holistic approach to exploring the proposal from both a residents view point and that of a visitors. The function of the gardens also serve as visual and sensory markers for residents suffering from dementia and assist them with orientation and familiarisation within their external environment. The aim of the external environment is to promote health and well being throughout.
