The need for a Cancer Hospice emerged from a social understanding about cancer as a disease in our society. People tend to ignore the sensitivity of cancer patients and the importance of increasing the quality of life for the time that remains. The project attempts to provide some insight into how a patient direly needs palliative care. Following my research, I strongly felt that it was necessary to propose a care unit or centre which would ease the pain of such patients. The architecture that has been proposed acts as a spiritual and meditative place for relaxation and care. Through the human senses (sight, sound, smell), the hospice environment has been created which provides a sense of strength and acceptance for cancer patients.
