Cancer is a dreaded disease and its treatment and therapy facilities need to be housed in an environment that itself provides a healing touch.

The concept therefore envisages the creation of a semi atrium entrance foyer created through the use of transparent ‘store-front’ glass that floods the interior spaces with natural light, an element that projects hope. We further proposed to plant tall trees amidst a water body in this area.

The building itself is envisaged as a pristine futuristic assembly of metallic prisms that are juxtaposed to create a soaring effect (a metaphor for the upliftment of the spirit). To enhance the constricted fore-ground space between the building and the road, the structure has been designed as a free cantilever partially supported by a rough granite block.

The entire composition of the proposed building from the main road is in harmony with the existing structures viz. the substation and the sanghvi block (we have proposed cladding part of the sanghvi block elevation).
