Design point of view: I get inspired by designs that consider the vulnerable and empower users. I love minimalistic designs that rely on neutral colors with some boldness and character. I also love designs that are sustainable, particularly as designs are in harmony with nature, where we use local materials in designs.
How this fits: This is the first inpatient cancer facility in Rwanda. What I love is how designers focused on meeting and interviewing different user groups, including patients and clinicians. They prioritized elements important for that community such as gathering areas, outdoor porches. I also love that they relied on natural elements, such as natural ventilation and a stunning view of nature around. I love designs that integrate nature and that are simple, and I think this is especially the case for a healing facility.
