Cedars-Sinai Cancer Center

at the Samuel Oschin Cancer Institute

Los Angeles, California


This infusion unit on the lower level of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center features 13 infusion bays surrounding a centralized nursing area. Daylight streams in from a narrow row of skylights on the east side of the space. Backlit panels installed in the upper region of the walls visually suggest light filtering further down into the space. The panels depict colorful images found in nature, selected to represent a sense of life, living, and optimism. Synchronized to four-hour cycles that reflect daylight's color gradations, the back lighting subtly shifts from rosy red in the morning to white at noon and lavender at sunset to project a three-dimensional glow that enhances the patient environment.
