Elaborating on the notion of Healing Architecture, this project comprises a cancer caring centre in Herlev. Situated in the Hospital Park, yet still in close relation to the Hospital, the centre exploits parameters of healing architecture and incor- porates them through immense relation to the recreational character of the park, healing effects of daylight and sensible and tactile spatial qualities. The architectural profile of the centre resembles small wooden cabins in the woods that defy the conventional institutional character of other typologies associated with health care. The transition from hospital to nature is embedded in the design through the tectonics of the structural system to create a comfortable space for recovery to frame the wholesome relation between man and nature.
