In an effort to explore the profound impact of architecture on mental well-being, the Hospice – Home for the Terminally Ill competition invites architects and designers to submit their visionary concepts for a daycare facility dedicated to terminally ill patients. This competition seeks to challenge and redefine the role of architectural design in providing comfort and support to those in the most vulnerable stages of life. 

Individuals facing terminal illnesses often struggle to find the comprehensive support they need, be it a professional to converse with or a serene space for relaxation and recuperation. This competition opens a dialogue about the potential of architecture to not just create spaces, but to also cultivate environments that positively influence the mental and emotional well-being of its occupants. 

Participants are encouraged to envision a daycare facility where terminally ill patients can visit, offering them a refuge that transcends traditional medical care. The competition poses an essential question: Can architecture serve as a pivotal tool in supporting a vulnerable community? Can thoughtful design alter perceptions of illness and provide a more affirmative experience as individuals approach the end of their lives? 

The Hospice – Home for the Terminally Ill #3 competition is more than an architectural challenge; it's an opportunity to make a real difference in the lives of people when they need it the most. We believe that through innovative design, architecture can offer new perspectives and experiences, contributing significantly to the quality of life of terminally ill patients. 

The competition is currently open for submissions until September 3, 2024. It boasts a prize pool of 7,000 €, with the winners set to be announced on October 17, 2024. This is a unique opportunity for architects and designers to showcase their skills and empathy, demonstrating how their designs can touch lives and provide solace in times of need.
