Repeats with a reassuring rhythm and defined delicacy
Foster + Partners for Maggie’s
Contract value: Confidential
Although located in the grounds of The Christie Hospital, this Robert Parfett building, setting and landscape draw you in and make you welcome. With its brilliant constructional system it is both practical and straightforward, a refuge and a joy.
A support centre for people in life-changing circumstances, the layout is clear, direct and accommodates well-proportioned shared and private spaces that can all be observed from the upper office level from which the team organise and run the building.
A precisely engineered timber structure – planed to perfection – repeats with a reassuring rhythm and defined delicacy. The light is everywhere; calm, delightful, just right.
The building not only satisfies every aspect of its brief for staff and users, it utterly engages the senses, generating an extraordinary work of architecture.
