Calm reflective spaces with an intimate, roof-lit cwtch
Dow Jones Architects for Maggie’s Cancer Care
Contract value: undisclosed
On an awkward triangular corner of a car park Dow Jones has turned inwards to create a series of calm reflective spaces – from the central warmth of the kitchen and kettle to the cwtch (small, comforting space or a cuddle) at the heart of the building, a tall and intimate roof-lit space, inspired by the Welsh vernacular. The building hunkers down with a series of pitched roofs in corrugated weathering steel so that the whole building reads as one abstracted form.
