The new Cancer Care Center in Naestved is located in close proximity to the regional Hospital. The purpose of the center is helping anyone affected by cancer through professional help in exceptional buildings specifically designed for this.
The surroundings of the oblong site are mainly characterized by a trafficated road to the east and outdated 60’s buildings belonging to the hospital. In order to create a building inspired by the model of healing architecture, the Cancer Care Centre was designed as an introvert building, opening up towards two inner courtyards. From the street, the building materializes as a four sided polygon covered by a soft landscapeof explosive greenery. From the interior, the building appears as a transparentyet intimate space where the green gardens are incorporated in the indoor spaces.
Interiorly, the functions are divided into 3 parts. The “living room” is placed between the two courtyards and serves as the main space of the center. The two remaining parts, the public functions and the administration part, are organized as loops around the courtyards, ensuring constant contact to the green gardens in the corridors.
