Skandion Clinic


Skandion Clinic is Scandinavia's first cancer clinic for treatment with proton therapy. A patient hotel with 86 double rooms has been constructed adjacent to the clinic. The elevated and airy hotel building has received a delicate appearance through Graphic Concrete, glass and perforated aluminium sheets all with a pattern inspired by lace curtains. 

“The white colour and the graphic pattern are common to the various building volumes. We have tried to achieve a ‘textile’ effect with the pattern to give the large volumes a human appearance. Many who work or have visited the building have speculated about what the pattern actually illustrates. The hotel’s staff likens it to a lace curtain, while the clinic’s staff sees in it a rain of protons.”
