The art and science of compassionate care

Patients need an environment that soothes and reflects the highest quality of care, to reduce fear and anxiety. We design spaces that support compassionate care—comfortable, with varied seating options, soothing color palettes, artwork, and access to views, daylight, and gardens. We provide spaces for interaction with fellow patients, as well as rooms with complete privacy. We know that choice and connection to nature makes infusion therapy a little less intimidating.

My passion is engaging with our clients, synthesizing their needs and opportunities into a convergence of form, function, and beauty.

Li Ka Shing Centre, The Cancer Research UK Cambridge Research Institute

This is a flagship facility for enhanced translational research located on Addenbrooke’s medical campus. The design supports multi-disciplinary collaboration between research groups and clinicians. Four generous open lab spaces were conceived as studios and linked together by a series of meeting room and write-up areas. The architectural inspiration came from Corpus Christi College in the nearby historic quarter of University of Cambridge. Read More

UCSF Precision Cancer Medicine Building

Hefei Particle Therapy Medical Center

Designing the first in-patient cancer treatment hospital with heavy carbon atoms took creativity. The 350,000 square foot, three-building complex would be built in two phases: the proton cancer hospital and then the hotel and carbon center. Our design ensures efficient patient and staff circulation to and within the facility and patient privacy. Hefei City is now the first city in China to provide this new, very powerful treatment method. Read More
