This research aims to solve the issues of postpartum depression among mothers through architectural solution. The paper focuses on the physical, psychological and spiritual needs of mothers who suffer from postpartum depression upon delivering their babies. The research has two (2) objectives: to evaluate the appropriate spatial requirement for postpartum confinement and design a Recovery Centre with an effective healing environment for postpartum women with depression. The table-research method to evaluate precedent studies of the same building typology was adopted to generate a comprehensive schedule of accommodation for the planned facility's spatial requirement and the criteria of a healing environment for women with postpartum depression. The research outcome is an architectural design facility proposed as a Recovery Centre for Women with Postpartum Depression. The project would benefit postpartum women by providing an appropriate healing environment in the new architectural design facility.
