Home for the Terminally Ill
Bangalore, India
A hospice for terminally ill cancer patients, focused around a large expanse of water that generates a sense of peace and calm. The front of the complex houses an administrative area, conference facilities and a day-care centre. The wards are located towards the rear. A typical module has a central nurses' station and washing area, while each patient has an individual space that leads out to a verandah overlooking the water. Facades are clad in locally available granite.
