On the campus of Texas Tech University, the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge and office building offers a comfortable place to work and a relaxing place to heal.
In the lodge, patients and families can gather at ground level common areas: a living room, library, exercise room and dining room. On warm, sunny days, the patio’s French doors open out to a courtyard and fountain, providing an oasis sheltered from the sun.
On the second and third floors, there are 32 guestrooms and two day rooms overlooking the school’s intramural softball fields.
Serving as a covered entry for the patient drop off, the terracotta arcade links the lodge to the office building. From within the office building, the conference rooms and private offices have views out to the West Texas landscape.
