When a person is diagnosed with a cancer, it can feel like a punch in the stomach.
Often there are tough questions to face, uncertainty of what will happen in the future, difficult emotions to cope with from anxiety to loneliness and feelings of fragility, uneasiness and fear. Kálida will be there to help and support you, a warm and welcoming place that is a refuge from the stress of the Hospital offering a programme of evidence based support which strengthens physical and emotional wellbeing.
Kálida Sant Pau Centre will be warm and welcoming, full of light and space with a mix of open areas and more private protected areas. The emphasis is on creating a homely, domestic environment in contrast to the clinical hospital building. The architect, who supported her husband Enric Miralles through his brain tumour diagnosis and treatment clearly is well placed to understand the curative value of well-designed buildings.
