The July 2011 issue of the OnOffice features an article on MJP Architects’ Maggie’s Centre Cheltenham. The photographs in the article are by Peter Durant.
Situated within the grounds of Cheltenham hospital, Maggie’s Cheltenham provides a free drop-in service for cancer sufferers and their families, offering emotional and psychological support and information.
The new facility is housed within a new single storey extension to the existing Victorian Grade II Listed Pool Keeper’s Lodge which sits by the river Chelt. The extension, clad and lined in locally sourced hardwood and conceived as a series of highly detailed pieces of ‘furniture’, sits under a large over sailing winged roof.
MJP have recently won both RIBA and Cheltenham Civic Awards for their Maggie’s Centre Cheltenham project.
