Green light for Maggie's Centre in Manchester by Foster + Partners

Planning permission has been granted for the Foster + Partners-designed Maggie's Cancer Caring Centre in the grounds of The Christie in Manchester, UK. The timber structure is set in a serene garden as its simple but effective design draws on the natural environment. The single-storey building features a wide, central spine which forms a mezzanine level bathed in natural light. Visitors to the timber structure and its integrated glass house will be provided with practical, emotional and social support as well as complementary therapies from the team at Maggie’s.

Maggie’s Chief Executive, Laura Lee said: “We are delighted that planning permission has been granted as it brings us a step closer to Maggie’s at The Christie becoming a reality. Surrounded by green space the Centre will be situated in a beautiful location and Lord Foster’s inspirational design ensures the landscape is reflected throughout the building creating a calm and uplifting environment for everyone that visits the Centre. We look forward to fulfilling our ambition to provide the highest quality cancer support to the people of the North West.”
