Flinders Centre for Innovation in Cancer

The Flinders Centre for Innovation in Cancer is unique in its strategic focus and the provision of multidisciplinary cancer care at all stages including health, diagnosis, treatment and end-stage disease.

The architectural concept focuses on several key areas; presenting a strong identity, an integrated research facility at the leading edge of research into the cancer treatment, and a place of healing, wellbeing and hope.

The atrium is the focal point of the interior space – a concentration of movement, activity and life. This space encourages informal communication and exchange between different departments and provides connectivity between the research and clinical floors.

The light and dark blue meeting pods extend out into the atrium and provide an immediate “sense of place” with striking cell inspired graphics.

The treatment areas becomes far more “homely” with the use of warm Tasmanian Oak timbers incorporated into the directional signage

The end result is a considered fusion of corporate elements that contrast with the beautifully crafted bespoke signage (and donor wall) elements.
