A therapeutic environment can be made manifest by identifying and applying into built form characteristics and qualities of healing. As a result, a study in the healing power of light and the healing power of religious expressions has been made to understand and extract characteristics and qualities of healing. Thus, the healing characteristics will be made manifest in a therapeutic house for abused victims. The house will be located in Cholula, Mexico and will serve as a small community clinic, as well as, a shelter for battered and abused women and children. It will facilitate the following areas: a private dwelling, administration, childcare, medical facilities, counselling areas, and a maintance area.
