The design\napproach focused on the distinct needs of cancer patients and their treatment\nschedules, which typically occur five days a week for five to eight consecutive\nweeks. The design provides a calming, nature oriented experience through the\nuse of natural light, organic forms, outdoor views to nature, soothing interior\ncolors, and an internal \u201cZen Garden\u201d which contains a vibrant living wall\ngarden visible from the treatment areas.
