Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute
Little Rock, Arkansas
University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences
This 13-story 300,000 SF facility allows the UAMS Cancer Institute to treat more patients and host innovative research into new treatments. WPRCI was designed to reflect the ambiance of a Four Star hotel with amenities such as a walk-in indoor solarium planting area with radiant heated flooring and indoor planters, a grand monumental open staircase with glass handrails, terrazzo flooring, an open-air atrium of slate tile in a Versailles pattern, and an open air wedge atrium from the 3rd to the 10th floor. The function of the open air spaces promotes healthy lifestyles as well as offers an environment for social interaction.
