SCCA Patient House

Seattle, Washington
Project Manager / Architect: Scot Carr

Housing out-of-town oncology patients and their caregivers during cancer treatment at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, this project presents a unique urban building type, developed in close collaboration with doctors, former patients, caregivers, and the SCCA. The building provides a home-away-from-home – an affordable, safe, and non-institutional housing option for patients and their caregivers. Conceptually, the building strives to create space that will have a healing influence by reducing stress and facilitating interaction between patients and caregivers. This Architecture 2030 project is also LEED™ Gold Certified.

“It was your hand and heart…that transformed the design from lines, measurements, and angles on a page to a place of healing, a place of peace, and a place where hope will live and thrive. So, on behalf of our grateful housing team, medical staff, and board and administration, but most importantly patients and their families and friends, we thank you so much for the SCCA House.”
