The main focus of the project is to create a safe and calm environment for NHS staff to relax using dogs as playmates. I worked with the Therapy Dogs Nationwide Charity to create an oasis to help burnt out hospital staff with anxiety, stress and depression. The whole structure, including an oasis park is elevated to the first floor where the hospital staff will have their therapy session with the therapy dogs. After the therapy session they will be able to walk the therapy dogs through the park or just sit and pet them until they rejuvenate themselves.
