Equilibrium is a peaceful and tranquil space to encourage mindful contemplation, rest and meditation.

It has an oriental theme, and is designed for female prisoners who require a space that encourages them to become at one with nature.

A bamboo enclosure gives a sense of safety and exclusivity to the garden. This is a space to help the visitor’s mind roam, leaving their worries behind and allowing for reflectiion.

The soft trickling water from a stone water feature is calming, while the rocks are metaphors for mountains climbed in life.

Green tonal plants enhance the oriental theme with Cornus kousa giving both height and dimension and a hint of colour. Acers, ornamental grasses and bamboo provide colour, texture and movement.
