The centre provides facilities for therapy, treatment and support for victims of torture from anywhere in the world. Care has been taken to develop spaces which contribute to the psychological healing process. The building presents a simple frontage to the busy road penetrated by a deep blue glazed wall which marks the entrance. Once inside the space opens up with views to upper galleries and through into a secret garden. This central space serves as the datum for the wayfinding through the building.
