Project Description

The Quiet Room, a self-contained, circular space within Duke's new Comprehensive Cancer Center, focuses on the user's experience by engaging their senses. This single room offers a contemplative space for one to a dozen people, a calming oasis amidst the institutional activity that surrounds it. When patients, family, and staff face life-changing issues, each will have different emotional and physical needs.The Quiet Room addresses this wide range with simple references to nature and subtle manipulations of light and sound.
