Work prior with VOA Associates Inc Executive Architect
Designed on a very constrained small site, this project envisioned a vertical high-rise arrangement for a new comprehensive cancer center including proton therapy. Our team was challenged to maximize the quantity of proton therapy treatment rooms within a very limited site dimension. The solution located the treatment rooms below grade in order to take advantage of a slightly longer dimension by spanning under adjacent sidewalks. Parking and multiple linacs were located below the proton therapy treatment level. Imaging, medical oncology, clinic space, and research were all located on upper levels above the public lobby. Care was given to ensure access to daylight to the lowest treatment levels underground.
