LOCATION Miami, Florida
Repurposing a warehouse into an outpatient cancer center was the goal of West Dade Oncology Center. The center consists of two Linear Accelerators, PET scan, CT Scan, HDR, Simulator, Exam Rooms and support areas. The design fosters calm and privacy for the patient, using short-ended corridors to further reduce the institutional feel. Work cores are situated to provide the appropriate supervision and minimizing distances for the staff. The interior finishes and furnishings feature a bright and modern Florida style: chartreuse green to recall the outdoor landscapes and blues alluding to the Miami skies. Simple exterior lines using painted stucco with strategic native landscaping help to transform the building to a nurturing and serene treatment center.
