Wellspring Calgary is a community-based cancer support center that provides a wide range of cancer support programs and services to serve the emotional, social, and information needs of Calgarians living with cancer and those who care for them. Throughout the design, every effort was made to provide spaces that would permit the healing process that the Wellsprings facility provides. A residential setting is desirable for the provision of these supportive services as a distinctly non-institutional setting has proven to be a more desirable means of offering support. Wellspring is designed to maintain residential qualities both in terms of appearance and scale. From the selection of materials to how the spaces are organized, Wellspring is intended to feel and function as a home for the visitors, staff and for the community.
