More on Duke Cancer Center on Architizer:
“The Duke Cancer Center in Durham, North Carolina was designed by Tsoi/Kobus & Associates to meet the evolving needs of a growing population of cancer patients and caregivers who require outpatient services.
The project consolidates clinical cancer services for patient ease, within a flexible floor plan allowing for future expansion possibilities. A multi-disciplinary “no ownership” model of shared clinical modules exists throughout all clinical floors. The strategic use of color, texture, and materials aids in wayfinding, helping patients and caregivers orient themselves. Natural daylight penetrates to the nurses’ stations and clinical core thanks to careful corridor alignment and patient treatment room pocket doors with clerestory openings. Efficient systems, a high-performance envelope, and shading strategies allow a reduction in energy use exceeding 20% for the facility.”
