The Wellness Precinct is a University of Canterbury project that will be completed along with the build of a new Recreation Centre.  Envisioned to perform two key functions, the Precinct will firstly act as a key university entrance gateway along with the start of a primary axis through the campus. Secondly it will include a plaza that breathes life into the Precinct through activation, social interactions and reflection opportunities.

RMM’s design integrates a strong cultural narrative of Hau which breathes life into the journey as one ventures through the precinct. This is achieved through paving design, sculptural markers, spatial arrangement and furniture design. Furthermore, the planting palette was carefully selected to use indigenous plants that provide educational opportunities, whether it be through their traditional use as medicinal plants, or as plants that were used for weaving and the like.
