About

Zoe Grundy

I have always been interested in the creative aspects of life including art, design, music and dance. Upon leaving school at the age of 18 I attended Dundee and Angus College where I achieved an HNC in 3D design before going on to start my 4-year degree at the University of Dundee. Finishing my degree during Covid-19 has certainly been a challenge but I did all that I could to ensure my project was successful. The aim for my project was to create a concept that would benefit the community. My project is titled Hälsa, the verb meaning welcome and the noun meaning good health. The inspiration behind the name is my maternal grandmother. She was born and raised in Sweden and came to Scotland in her late teens where she met my grandfather. She was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in her early thirties and fought until her early seventies. Socialising and community were hugely important to her and I feel that my design would have helped her and many like her. The concept is a health and wellbeing centre which provides the necessary healthcare whilst also allowing for social connections between those who attend. The building will include physic, sensory spaces, therapies such as art, music and physical. There will also be a hydrotherapy pool and large gym hall for accessible group sports. There will be trained medical staff on sight to assist those who need whilst also providing relaxation spaces such as a library, cafe and outdoor and indoor gardens.
