Recovering from cancer, Swedish style at Hotel Von Kræmer!

As cancer increases to effect a large percentage of the population, the Swedes have decided to make the treatment process as pleasant as possible. The intelligent design of Skandion Clinic by Link Arkitektur has created Scandinavia’s first cancer clinic using proton therapy. The complex technical construction required a highly advanced radiotherapy facility, preparation rooms, offices, conference rooms, a hotel and a restaurant.

We arrived on site to wet chaos, rain was lashing down and the constructors had decided to it was a good day to conceal some cables under the exterior paving. Photographing the luxurious interior’s of Hotel Von Kræmer on the top floor was the first order of the day! Luckily by the afternoon all was back in place outside and we were free to visually play with the exciting structure! What do you think of the results?
