VITAMIN SEA

THE GRAIN TOWER BATTERY

The idea of a natural health retreat would be the first of its kind within the U.K. It offers people, either suffering of not, the opportunity to experience alternative healing measures, providing a new angle on the health sector.

The Grain Tower Battery, No. 1, The Thames is a 19th century defence tower that sits on a mudflat 1km out on the Thames Estuary, Sheerness, Kent. It has been abandoned and derelict since its defencive uses were expired some years ago.

The retreat would be orientated around the notion of natural elements and utilizing the inherent surrounding natural environment of the building. The facilities focus is around healing through natural remedies, particularly exposing the benefits associated with the sea. This might include mud, salt or seaweed experimentation.

Together with that, focused around food being the ultimate way to nourish - considering the notion of kitchenism, developed by the Maggie's Cancer Care Centre. This lends itself to emphasize the importance of the kitchen, also referred to as the ‘heart of the home’, ultimately allowing the guest to pick, learn and apply their fresh ingredients.

The retreat will take the form of a hotel and school, that nourishes through environment, meanwhile promoting the extensively attributed benefits associated with all kinds of natural remedies, ultimately reducing the need for pharmaceuticals.
