National Oncology Centre
Farrow Partnership Architects
and Associate Architects Co-rd Ltd
The new National Oncology Centre is a three-storey structure with four radiation treatment bunkers linked to the existing Eric Williams Hospital via walkways and landscaping. Gentle sloping lines and sprawling therapy gardens create a ‘village gathering place’ for cancer patients and their families.
One of the challenges on this project was planning to consider future flexibility of the facility and its related impacts on the host hospital.
Working closely with the user groups in Trinidad, Farrow Partnership brought the firm’s experience in designing internationally recognized cancer centres to the project.
