Western Manitoba Cancer Centre
Brandon, Manitoba

The Western Manitoba Cancer Centre provides radiation therapy, chemotherapy and outpatient care for residents of Western Manitoba. The facility includes the following functional areas:

The strategy was to create a simple, elegant, cost-effective structure with ample light and restful, therapeutic views. Expansive views and windows into the courtyard, combined with clerestory windows, maximize daylight throughout the public spaces. The building is simply zoned into four quadrants and organized around a central landscaped zone, facilitating ease of wayfinding. Landscaping provides a linear element extending north to south into and through the building. Staff and patients have a direct view into the garden from all treatment spaces.
