Modern Hospice Design The Architecture of Palliative and Social Care

The latest edition of this book (published by Routledge) is a comprehensive update written by author Ken Worpole (opens new window) on the need for good quality palliative care and does so with regard to the development of new building types.

Supported by newly illustrated case studies, at its core is a public discussion of a philosophy of design for providing care for the elderly and the vulnerable, taking the importance of architectural aesthetics, the use of quality materials, the porousness of design to the wider world, and the integration of indoor and outdoor spaces as part of the overall care environment.
