Hollywood Beach has a wonderful natural view of the Atlantic Ocean and a temperate semi-tropical climate. The project site has direct access to the 4-mile Broadwalk, where people can walk, bike, or roll along the beach. Building massing and floor plans position living and dining areas to face the ocean. The C-shaped building hugs the central courtyard garden in a metaphorical gesture of users as they embrace nature with their passion for life. It imitates the gesture people hugging each other. This project is carefully designed for cancer patients who need further care to support conventional medical treatment. People can experience a convenient daily life and a regular medical treatment. The project provides gathering spaces for special events and activities. The whole project uses natural wood colors for the exterior to create a warm atmosphere in harmony with nature.
