The World Architecture Community, from architects, designers, students and professional practices, new and innovative projects from across the world. The 34th International WAC Jury Award was received by Srijit Srinivas - Architects for the Benziger Hospice Home. The Malabar Province of the Order of Discalced Carmelite (OCD) – affiliated to the Catholic Church, commissioned the ‘Benziger Hospice Home’ project in the South Indian city of Trivandrum with the vision of providing free accommodation for cancer patients visiting local hospitals. The project had a very challenging design and included many alterations that changed the original brief of the building. Aimed at bringing a sense of calm to the patients, the Benziger Hospice Home uses a deliberate proportion of spaces, giving a warm and welcoming feel to visitors.
