Cancer Support Community

Project Description

This cancer support facility was conceived to be a worldwide prototype for Cancer Support Communities. Located on the edge of a conservation area overlooking a wetland, DWY blurred the lines between the built site and its natural setting while establishing infinite spaces for healing. Amenities include a medicinal herb garden, tai chi lawn, labyrinth, fitness trail and dramatic courtyard. A truly collaborative effort, the project embraced LID strategies and achieved a LEED Gold certification.
