The Purpose of the Proposal HOPE Cape Town's brief was to create a versatile wellness facility for the Delft community, with a special focus on women, children, adolescents, and families facing poverty, HIV/AIDS, and associated illnesses. The objective was to establish a secure haven that fosters gathering, support, and social cohesion in an environment that grapples with alarming levels of negative social behaviour. Description of the Project TKLA's approach to this project was to create outdoor hubs of gathering and refuge that reinforce the sense of a safe space. These landscape 'rooms' are structured around a central movement spine, a predominantly hard landscaped area, collectively evoking the sense of being held and eventually celebrated within a village.
