The new outpatient facility at Monter Cancer Center incorporates the restorative qualities of nature as a complementary healing force. Located in a converted historic warehouse, the 37,000 square-foot facility uses the building’s distinctive 120-foot long skylights to incorporate natural light into the public and patient care areas. The design incorporates a series of atria, reception, and waiting areas along a spacious corridor.
The landscape concept features bamboo and birch groves. In the lobby, staggered bands of bamboo create serene settings for relaxing and quiet conversation. The bamboo trunks provide a sense of privacy from passersby while allowing staff to monitor the various seating areas. Outside, birch trees strategically screen nearby traf?c while framing views of the surrounding landscape.
