Treatment area and public spaces
The starting point of this design was to create a pleasant and comfortable environment that reduces stress for patients, visitors and staff.
Based on the Healing Environment principle, the space is designed to stimulate the recovery of the cancer patient. The ‘Cocoon’ offers a patient an intimate and private space during treatment. By using ‘Moodscapes’, a glass wall covering with a leave pattern that moves during the day, the indoor spaces become a natural and soothing experience.
