Cancer centre design emphasises tranquility

cancer care centre

Norwegian architects Snohetta and Halliday Fraser Munro have come up with a design for a Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centre in Aberdeen, Scotland.

These facilities are specifically designed to give a tranquil and peaceful feel and offer refuge and escape for people dealing with cancer, be they the patient or friends and family members.

Often located near UK NHS buildings, the centres always have a kitchen table at their core and a number of breakout spaces at the edges so that visitors can gather to openly discuss challenges they may be facing or engage in organized events such as relaxation courses.

There are now 16 completed Maggie’s Centres across the UK – plus one in Hong Kong – and the organisation regularly partners with world-renowned architects and designers such as Zaha Hadid, Richard Rogers and Rem Koolhaas.
