Duke Integrative Medicine
Durham, North Carolina
Duke Integrative Medicine unites traditional and alternative medicine in a holistic environment for mind, body and spirit. Nestled in the woodlands of Duke Forest, the welcoming and comforting environment interweaves natural features with the man-made requirements of modern clinical care. Essential to Integrative Medicine’s mission to provide a comprehensive, customized, whole-person approach to health care is the building’s connection to the outdoors and to healing gardens and paths. Building programs include treatment rooms, workshop and meditation spaces, a circular library with a soaring wood framed cathedral ceiling, and a state-of-the-art café. Bamboo grows to reach clerestory windows in the sun-drenched meditation room.
