Maggie’s provides free practical, emotional and social support to people with cancer and their family and friends.
Dow Jones Architects were commissioned to design a centre for the Velindre Cancer Care Centre, a specialist cancer hospital in Whitchurch, North West Cardiff, in 2011.
The new building is located on a triangular shaped site. Visitors are taken on a journey through an intimate courtyard garden, into a range of calm spaces which focus on the nearby trees and garden.
The building has a serious of pitched roofs which, along with the external walls, are clad in corrugated weathering steel.
The interior spaces are formed between Douglas Fir lined walls which have a warmth and softness, and contrast with the sleek polished concrete floor.
Maggie's Centre received a Civic Trust Award 2020.
