By linking health, social and architectural theory and establishing conceptual principles, this book defines ‘hospice’ as a philosophy that is underpinned by space and spatial practice. In putting forward the notion of ‘hospice space’, removed from the bounds of a specific building type, it suggests that hospice philosophy could and should be available within any setting of choice where the spatial practices support that philosophy, be it home, nursing home, hospice or ‘hospice-friendly-hospitals’.
