OMA donates £25,000 architecture award fund to Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centre in Gartnavel

The Gartnavel base of Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centres was completed in October 2011 and has received widespread praise since concepts were released some years before. The healthcare facility was shortlisted for the 2012 RIBA Stirling Prize and has just been awarded the Andrew Doolan Best Building in Scotland Award by the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland (RIAS).

Along with the prestige that an award of this nature brings is a £25,000 prize fund, which OMA has generously donated to Maggie’s Gartnavel.

Maggie’s Chief Executive Laura Lee said: “It is an enormous pleasure to have won the Doolan Award for our Maggie’s Centre in Gartnavel and incredibly generous of OMA to donate their prize to us. Our Centre visitors regularly tell us how much they enjoy the building because it is welcoming, light and spacious. OMA has done an incredible job in creating a Centre that facilitates our programme of support as well as making our visitors feel welcome, safe and valued.

“At Maggie’s we place a great emphasis on the benefits of good architecture and design and Maggie’s Gartnavel with its interconnected rooms encourages our visitors to explore the building in a contrast to the narrow corridors and hallways of many hospitals.”
