Title: Hidden Lake Health & Wellness Retreat
Author: Meyer, Carrie
Abstract: This thesis provides some answers to the question, does a design have the ability to promote health and wellness in our personal choices about the way we live? A healthy way of life is a personal choice determined by the individual and can be influenced by natural, environmental, and design factors. The typology for the examination of the problem is a healthcare facility and personal wellness retreat center. The Theoretical Premise/Unifying Idea that guides the research is, “the environment and its surroundings influence the choices made by individuals in the ways they live their lives.” The project will be located in Alexandria, MN on the western side of Lake Carlos State Park. The 42,000 square foot facility includes therapy, treatment, fitness, education and living spaces. The project emphasis will focus on healthy environments and the influence of site on the building and users.
