The aim of this research is to design a trauma centre for abused women and children in the Mamelodi area, which will aid their recovery from extremely distressful and traumatic events. The current system focuses on the immediate effects of abuse and rape. Very few resources are avalable in terms of supporting the survivor's long term emotional and psychological wellbeing. The objectives of the proposed facility will focus on psychological and emotional care as well as addressing the lack of psychologigal facilities and spatial quality in healing spaces.
