In association with Donald Blair Architects, SWBR designed the James P. Wilmot Cancer Center as one of a few state-of-the-art comprehensive cancer facilities in the United States. This center combines research and treatment in one structure. This interaction between researchers and doctors has led to many of the most successful treatment developments for cancer to date.
The building design maximizes interaction between building occupants to foster enhanced communication and greater innovation. The enclosed three-story glass atrium is the main feature, which allows visual and physical connectivity between the patients, clinical treatment areas and research.
The building is designed to blend in with the existing medical center, especially the ambulatory care facility, which the building abuts, yet bring a new contemporary aesthetic with its curved glass facade facing the current traffic loop.
The center is designed as a LEED® certifiable building, maximizing as many sustainable features as achievable within the project budget constraints.
