Design Practice Location:
In April 2017, HCA Healthcare UK opened a dedicated new cancer facility on the top four floors of the Cancer Centre at Guy’s. Housing Europe’s first integrated robotics theatre for minimally invasive surgery, and offering innovative treatments such as stem cell transplants for MS the centre offers the full spectrum of cancer services, world-class doctors and the latest cancer treatments.
The aim was to create a positive, healing environment for patients to recover in through an innovative combination of textured interiors, multi-layered designs of iconic London views digitally printed on glass screens and dFend cashmere cladding – inspiration from cancer healing plants was derived to add colour and relevance to the cityscape designs. Locally sourced hand blown feature glass lighting takes centre stage against natural walnut wood panelling whilst relaxing landscaped external balcony spaces offer patients a multi-layered sensory and healthcare experience.
