Refugees are people who are forced to leave their countries due to various circumstances. However, these groups of people need help to overcome their hardship, which has taken a toll on their physical and mental state of life. As a result, a proper environment is needed for refugees to recover and lead a normal life. Hence, this work presents a proposal on developing a refugee therapy center. This work has examined two case studies in relation to rehabilitation center. Thus based on the analyzed case studies, the estimated area required for the refugee center is 15000 m2. In addition, this center is comprised of four zones, which are clinical zone, cultural and educational zone, social zone and administration zone. In this work, the proposed site for development was attained through site evaluation analysis. Accordingly, the proposed site is located in Amman, Jordan. The development of this center is expected to enhance the living quality of refugees and to change the current global idea of refugees and to provide them with the basic necessities to lead a normal life.
