Quiet Room, Duke University Cancer Center

Durham, North Carolina

A self-contained, circular space within Duke’s Comprehensive Cancer Center focuses on engaging the senses of patients, family and staff facing life-changing issues. This single room offers a contemplative, calming oasis that creates a range of sensory experiences to meet each person’s unique emotional and physical needs. Simple references to nature and subtle manipulations of color, light and sound provide a sanctuary amid the institutional activities of the Center.
