Like any organism, ANNA responds to the environment and moves with the rhythm of nature to allow you to be part of it, rather than just being a spectator.
That sets the stage to experience the beauty of a fierce rain shower from under the glass roof, to wake up among the birds in the early morning, or to be mesmerised by the starry night sky directly above your bed.
In a world that is becoming increasingly volatile and more digital, and certainly after the exhausting years of the Covid pandemic, people crave connections – connections with others, with the environment, and also with themselves.
Like muscles, the brain needs to be trained with care, and if we over-stimulate certain parts and under-stimulate others, exhaustion, burnout, and depression can follow.
Particularly when connected with our surrounding environment (and the natural environment in particular), recovery processes get going in what neuroscientist Prof. dr. Margriet Sitskoorn (Tilburg University) calls 'default mode'.
For that reason, a stay so close to nature, without barriers such as walls and roofs, is essential in times like these.
ANNA offers a comforting place to get in touch with both your inner and outer nature, aiming to connect to a world that is overshadowed in our daily lives.
