Caring Cabin

Caring Cabin constitutes a contemporary retreat and it was designed by TVA Architects.

Situated in Pacific City, Oregon, it was designed for the Children’s Cancer Association and it was designed as a refuge for patients, as well as their families. Due to the special needs of the compound’s occupants, non toxic materials are used in building Caring Cabin.

The Children’s Cancer Association sought to create a lakeside retreat in which families of children diagnosed with cancer would be able to escape the medical world’s sterile environments and enjoy the serenity of nature. Designed as a series of pavilions, Caring Cabin provides that opportunity.

Situated in Pacific City, Oregon, USA, the retreat compound is defined by its main residence which constitutes a small meditation pavilion and a garage with storage space.

The retreat compound’s main facility is comprised of two private family bedroom pavilions, as well as an adjacent family gathering pavilion which includes the kitchen, the dining area, and informal gathering spaces that have a large stone fireplace.

The facility is largely constructed of donated building materials and it was designed pro-bono. Due to the building users’ sensitive nature, care was taken to eliminate building materials that were known to be toxic.

Finishes are including natural stone, sealants, low VOC paints, natural wool carpets, adhesives, as well as formaldehyde-free wood products.
